Milk Causes Type 1 Diabetes & Autoimmune Diseases . . .

Our own beloved Sonoma County doctor, John McDougall, M.D.,  authored bill SB 380 in the California legislation. This bill would require all medical doctors in the state of California to include a course on nutrition as part of their continuing medical education.

SB 380 was strongly opposed by the California Medical Association, on the grounds that the legislature should not be telling doctors "how to practice medicine."  A version of the bill modified from the initial draft passed the committee this past Monday.

This video shows opening statements from Dr. McDougall and Dr. Forrester, on the Senate floor.

  1. The lack of knowledge of nutrition in our medical system is so sad, it would be nice if basic natural treatments were taught as well, but unfortunately medical school appears to be completely sponsored by the drug industry right now :(

  2. So true Cara . . . SB 380 was an attempt to nudge the 'system' in a better direction. Unfortunately the CMA and drug companies lobbied so hard against this bill I'm afraid it's a skeleton of it's former self.

    Thanks for your feedback!
