Stop. Rub your eyes, and read that again.Soak it in

This is an outstanding piece of literature and I will be sharing in my network as well. This is what we call a "Mind" that is "full".

The U.S. is one of the most overly medicated countries in the world, yet we can’t seem to get a handle on heart disease, obesity, and allergies. I've been an ER Nurse ( RN, BSN) since 2001 and have witnessed MD's prescribe drugs they don’t believe will work. And what's beyond alarming is how little the role of nutrition is emphasized in medical school.
