Fighter-Pilot Debrief for Med Students!

Colonel’s Blog, Earthdate 8 December 2023…

Hey Y’all!

Good evening and happy Fast-Jet Friday from Air2Ground Farms! The fast jet today is the Mighty-Mighty F-15E Strike Eagle. The remaining pics are the beef herd enjoying their morning hay. We’re forecast to get a bit of rain tonight after a seriously cloudy day. The temps are forecast to dip below freezing the next couple of nights and then back above freezing for the next couple of weeks. I was wrong on the processing date for the lambs, it is the 18th, so the lambs still have another 10 days or so on the farm. We updated the appointment to 13 which means 3 will remain on the farm as they are too small to justify the price of processing. When the lambs leave, we will be in full winter mode which means less animal moves but daily hay offerings. We’re discussing what to do with all of the guardian dogs for the winter. Throughout the summer and fall, we’ve had 2-3 different groups of sheep so the 7 dogs have stayed busy. When the lambs leave, we’ll be down to one flock. Here’s the issue…there are 4 females and only one is fixed. The cost dictated that the rest will stay intact for the time being. So, they can’t be with the males. There are 3 males and 2 of them gang up on the third so they can’t all be together. I feel like I need one of the logic charts to x out who can’t go with who and see what’s left. Most likely, we will put two males in a large electrified fence between the house area and the nearest wooded area to deter predators from approaching the birds from the woods. One male and the fixed female will stay near the house and the remaining 3 females will go in with the sheep flock once we get them in their electrified winter paddock. Who knew the dogs would drive so many decisions?

Why hasn’t your doctor, the person you trust with your medical wellbeing, discussed the health benefits of a low-carb lifestyle with you? Notice I’m making the assumption that you haven’t had that discussion…and statistics tell me that I will be correct in my assumption. A 2020 study published in the Nutrition Review found “the amount of nutrition training provided to medical students is minimal, despite the significant impact diet has on health.” Further research into the specifics of what is offered shows that more than a third of medical schools provide less than 12 hours of nutrition education and less than a third provide at least 25 hours of nutrition education across a four-year curriculum. The most common reason given is that there is just too much other stuff to learn to focus on nutrition and its impact on health. Medical training, and thus the medical profession writ large, focuses on diagnosing and treating. What’s wrong? Here’s your meds to fix it. High blood pressure? Here’s your pill. High blood sugar? Here’s your pill. Pre-diabetic? Here’s your metformin. Diabetic? Here’s your insulin. Obese? Here’s your Ozympic. How much time is spent figuring out why the condition is there in the first place? Go in for bloodwork and you can rest assured they will be searching for anything outside the “normal” range for which you can be prescribed a pill to bring your numbers back into the “normal” range. Look at the research on a low-carb lifestyle and its effect on all of the conditions listed above. All something you can potentially control yourself by adopting a low-carb lifestyle. BUT, that doesn’t fit into the identify and treat mentality of the Standards of the American Medical system. In the fighter-pilot debrief, the focus is on root-cause analysis. Why did something happen? Not just it happened so fix it. Maybe medical students should spend some time in the debrief room to learn to find the root cause of an issue!

Check out yesterday's podcast, about the tools we used to start our low-carb lifestyle! And hear us discuss the difficult decision regarding Betty the Jersey.

Could the culprit be 8 something billion dollars that pharma spends on advertising, including direct payments to prescribers?

Or 14 billion from food industry?

Medical students will be debriefed on a root cause of their well being and will proudly continue to carry the torch of compliance in to the future. Those who won’t comply will be deemed dangerous to the public and canceled in the name of common good.

I say it's both! You're so right, unfortunately...
