It only takes three years to become a medical doctor, not twelve years as is commonly believed. In every country, except the United States and Canada, students enter medical school right after high school. Even in Canada there are provinces where students can enter medical school immediately after high school. It doesn't even require a B.A. degree to study medicine in countries outside the United States. The only reason for why the U.S. requires a bachelor's degree for entering medical school is because U.S. medical schools want students to have broader knowledge and a liberal arts education because they believe, and rightly so, that this helps a medical doctor to understand better humanity and to inter-act with society. Most of a medical doctor's knowledge of his practice comes from the five years of residency after graduating from medical school. That's where a doctor learns the tools of the trade.
A medical doctor's knowledge is basically knowing and understanding diseases, their symptoms, treatments, the parts of the body and where they're located in case he or she has to cut out something. That's about it. They're not scientists who do experiments and in-depth scientific research.
Most medical doctors don't have any respect for any knowledge about how to treat disease unless they were taught it in their three years of medical school. Many research scientists in public universities have studied for years, and experimented for years, how certain ingredients in plants can help prevent, and even cure, diseases (including cancer). This is rarely, if ever, taught in medical schools. Why?
Here's why. They're not taught these things in medical schools for economic reasons. Doctors cannot make money from natural medicines. Doctors make a lot money from prescribing medicine manufactured by pharmaceutical (drug) companies. Pharmaceutical companies cannot make money from natural medicines (found in plants) because natural medicines cannot be patented. Only artificial (man-made) medicines can be patented. The FDA approves what patented medicine, developed by drug companies, can be used by doctors and the FDA gets a lot of money in fees from these pharmaceutical companies for giving them the license to produce these drugs. The problem, however, with these man-made drugs, however, is that they cause all sorts of ill side-effects, and that's good for the law firms who make a lot of money suing the drug companies. There are some, very few, mad-made drugs that are truly useful, but most are garbage.
The European Union, under pressure from pharmaceutical companies, has banned the sale of natural supplements and herbs in Europe, and they are trying to do the same in the United States. Sickness and illness is a big business, and pharmaceutical companies don't really want people to become well and healed. They want people to use their drugs to manage their illness and barely function, but not become healed or truly well.
Unlike the medical doctors that our grandparents knew, the medical doctors of today and the drug companies are a big business and make huge amounts of money, even after all the law suits are over. They're rolling in the dough.
An excellent plant food to take is spirulina. Spirulina is a complete plant food and has almost, if not, all the nutrients the human body needs. Just a single serving of 7 grams (1 tablespoon) contains more nutrition than five times the USDA minimum requirement of fruits and vegetables. Scientific studies have shown it can help prevent, and even heal, serious disease, including cancer. If you do have cancer and are undergoing chemo and radiation treatments, taking at least three tablespoons (21 grams) of spirulina daily can help protect your body's delicate immune system and its organs from irreversible damage normally caused by chemo and radiation treatments. Your chances of the cancer being eliminated or going into complete remission are greatly, greatly increased. Should the cancer go into remission, still continue to take the spirulina, even if you take it at a lower dosage, to keep you healthy. It's only food.
