Study shows most physicians practice healthy behaviors


WASHINGTON According to a recent study released by the Council for Responsible Nutrition Tuesday—the “Life…supplemented” Healthcare Professionals Impact Study—the majority of physicians engage in healthy behaviors, with three of the top shared healthy behaviors being: trying to eat a balanced diet (82 percent), exercising regularly (73 percent) and taking vitamins and other supplements (72 percent).

Nurses tend to follow a similar wellness checklist, CRN stated, with 87 percent of nurses saying they try to eat a balanced diet and 89 percent taking supplements.

“It’s encouraging that for the most part, doctors and nurses practice the healthy behaviors that they preach, such as eating a healthy diet, exercising and taking supplements,” stated Donnica Moore, president of the Sapphire Women’s Health Group and a consultant to the “Life…supplemented” consumer wellness campaign.
