What If Your Wrong

Being Human Means Being Wrong Sometimes

Dr. Peter Attia shares a poignant moment in his life as a doctor.

As a young surgical resident, Peter Attia felt contempt for a patient with diabetes. She was overweight, he thought, and thus responsible for the fact that she needed a foot amputation.

But years later, Attia received an unpleasant medical surprise himself and was diagnosed with diabetes.  That led him to wonder: is our understanding of diabetes right? Could the precursors to diabetes cause obesity, and not the other way around? A look at how assumptions may be leading us to wage the wrong medical war.

So much of what we “know” may indeed be wrong.  By keeping an open mind and heart, we can all reshape the future.
