‘Biggest Loser’ star presses Waxman on nutrition bills

This is extremely important that our healthcare professionals get training on proper diet and nutrition for their patients. The simplest way to reverse diseases such as heart disease, type II diabetes, cancers, etc. Is through diets high in whole plant-based foods. Prevention goes a LONG way!

"The personal trainer, 40, has penned a letter to Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) asking him to co-sponsor two bills — the Education and Training (EAT) for Health Act (H.R. 4378) and the Expansion of Nutrition’s Role in Curricula and Healthcare (H.R. 4427) — that she says would “increase awareness about the power of healthful eating among our health care providers.” Michaels is from Waxman’s district and writes in the letter that she’s reaching out to him because he had success on other public health initiatives."
"The EAT Act would direct the Department of Health and Human Services to issue guidelines for federal agencies to require that their healthcare professionals receive nutrition training, while H.R. 4427 would create a grant program for medical schools to integrate nutrition education into their curricula."
