Question: My family doctor is threatening to quit being my physician if I don’t quit taking smart drugs. What should I do? He’s been my doctor for most of my life.

Answer: If your doctor refuses to treat you if you are taking various nutrients and smart drugs, fire him or her and find another doctor. Whatever medical advice your doctor offers you, it is advice and subject to your considerations as a patient. Whether or not it is a violation of medical ethics for a doctor to attempt to blackmail a patient (we have heard of numerous instances with much more serious medical implications to the threatened patient), we do not think that it is a good idea to have to keep your doctor in the dark about your health program. We strongly recommend that you find a doctor you can be honest with. ——SWF
