My Interview on Primal Chat

Jeff at Primal chat is running a series of interviews with Primal/Paleo bloggers called 'SpearTosser Spotlight', and in spite of the double entendre implied by the name (this is perhaps just a UK thing!) I was more than happy to agree:

I've seen your comments on other blogs, and have recently read some of your posts - great blog!

I had a similar experience with doctors as yours, although I must admit that I have been more inclined to tell any doctor that I decide what tests to do and when:

I meet with doctors on a regular basis, as part of a community group I attend, and also have taught quantitative research methods to students doing their PhD in nursing.

Typically doctors, and often even nurses, are not interested in prevention. What excites them is to solve acute and complex health problems. The sicker the patient, and the more acute is the disease, the more exciting is the challenge.

They mean well. This is just the way they were trained. Also, often doctors do not walk their talk; most are obese and quite a few smoke.

Thanks Ned - enjoyed your blog post & have left a comment. Doctors do indeed mean well, which makes it doubly frustrating because you just can't hate them! Surely though, their desire to seek excitement at curing acute conditions ought not to prevent their buying into our way of thinking , since as Eades would no doubt attest, dietary changes can potentially reverse serious conditions?
