Furthermore, christ the mcat will have a little bit of biochemistry on it, it will not have physical chemistry, nor analytical chemistry, and nor will it test calculus based physics. Doing a biochemistry major for the sake of being "prepared" for the mcat is going to be both a bothering and annoying activity. You'll obtain all of your relevant biochemistry from biochem 1 and your mcat prep books, and then learn all of the medically relevant stuff in your first year of medical school.
Evidence? Hmmm, my father who is on both a premed committee and admissions staff for medical school. Business will screw you over. Admissions teams give preference to students who have scientific, or harder majors. Those who chose the "easy route" will not get in. I'm not saying that business majors aren't usually accepted, I'm just saying a 3.5 in chemistry is worth a whole lot more than a 3.5 in business. At least to admissions staff.
