Medical knowledge doubling faster than most realize

by Roc (click here for full post)

From the Fickenscher files:  The explosion in medical knowledge is daunting. Last year, more than2.5 million clinical studies were published, and the rate of increase is accelerating. For example, in 1950, it took 50 years for medical knowledge to double. By 1980, that had reached just 7 years. In 2020, the projection for the doubling of knowledge in medicine is 2.5 months. Imagine that!!

Nutrition Investigator adds: This means that your doctor is unlikely to be able to keep up to date.  Be sure you have a knowledgeable friend who can advise you before and after you see your doctor.
