Overspecialization is literally killing us

Specialization is helpful in achieving a deeper understanding of highly specific phenomena. However, overspecialization leads to major misunderstanding. It can be fatal to us as patients.

Today we have experts in vitamin D, experts in vitamin A, and experts in vitamin K. Unfortunately, these three fat soluble vitamins work together – and with all other nutrients – in keeping our arteries soft and our bones hard, and in reducing the odds of getting cancer, while the scientists who study them individually do not work together. Much needed is a way of integrating information, a person-independent method perhaps, such as the zetosophers have.
