#2 The neglected knowledge of nutrition in medical treatments

With professor Gerjan Navis, internist nephrologist at the UMC Groningen

Why do physicians still prescribe mainly drugs, even when treating chronic diseases? How detrimental are the effects of stigma and prejudice and the double burden of malnutrition? And what should health care professionals and the government do to actually support those who need it.

Leoni von Ristok talks with nephrologist Gerjan Navis who treats kidney patients at the University Medical Center Groningen to explore these questions.
