If you haven't yet, it's time to take medical doctors down off their pedestals. They know how to set broken bones and how to suppress symptoms of sickness with drugs, but if you are looking for advice on how to get and stay healthy, you probably should look elsewhere! Check out this commercial video made in 1949 (the year I was born!) I shudder to think how many babies grew in the wombs of smoking mothers due to advice like this back then.

Oh my. This is so ridiculously sad, isn't it? I didn't realize that some doctors back then actually endorsed smoking!
I hope you don't mind if I put this video on my blog? It does make me wonder how the advice they are giving us now, will be insanely different in the next generation. For example, I suspect that someday, maybe not in our lifetime, doctors will be speaking out against cow's milk.

Yes, and docs today are STILL being "bought" by drug companies.
