“The primary reason diseases tend to run in families may be that diets tend to run in families.”
Michael Greger, How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease

“With no serious downsides, a one-in-three potential benefit for end-stage cancer seems like it would spark further research, right? But who’s going to pay for a study of something that can’t be patented?”
Michael Greger, How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease

“This was my wake-up call. I opened my eyes to the depressing fact that there are other forces at work in medicine besides science. The U.S. health care system runs on a fee-for-service model in which doctors get paid for the pills and procedures they prescribe, rewarding quantity over quality. We don’t get reimbursed for time spent counseling our patients about the benefits of healthy eating. If doctors were instead paid for performance, there would be a financial incentive to treat the lifestyle causes of disease. Until the model of reimbursement changes, I don’t expect great changes in medical care or medical education.5”
