I just had to throw out this post from SD_Mikey:
Ever hear of comparative-effectiveness research (link below)? Seems to fit in nicely with some of the intolerance (pun intended) that MDs have against prescribing a gluten-free diet to people who have the sundry health issues that plague the modern American.
This COULD be a very juicy place to drive the skinny end of the wedge into the mainstream medical establishment. How? What are THEY using a premise for advocating this proceedure vs that proceedure? Currently it’s some kind of consensus built from past experience, influence from drug companies and just inertia. How about making Evolutionary Medicine the framework for study development and policy implementation? I’m all about free markets, but at some point the economics of situations cut through the bull-shit. Advocating failed nutritional approaches and state managed health care is not going to fix things. Economic incentives for living in accordance with our genetics will.
