I have fundamental issues with the U.S. health care system.
As all the reserch states green tea is healthy in a myriad of ways, for example, I see two things occuring: The FDA making public statements that green tea is unlikely to have cancer activity and the pharmaceutical companies rushing to study the mechanism of green tea's anti-cancer activity. Japan has officially gone on record as recommending green tea consumption as a practical, everyday, way to help lower the risk of cancer.
Politics! And it frustrates the fuck out of me. How can I make changes? I write my congressmen, I practically carry around a bullhorn and scream from atop buildings.
U.S. doctors are unschooled in nutrition. Maybe a single class in it (if that). It's not going out on a limb to recognize many Imminst member know as much and more than doctors about diet and nutrition.
I'm ranting again...
