Recently by Dr. David Brownstein: The ADA Wants Nutrition Prisons
Maybe you can fight city hall! Recently, the state of Michigan’s Office of Regulatory Reinvention (ORR) made 63 recommendations to Governor Snyder. The headline from the press release (from www.michigan.gov dated 4.16.12) stated, “ORR Issues Recommendations to Deregulate 18 Occupations; Eliminate 9 Boards.” One of the occupational boards scheduled for elimination was (cue the drum roll) the Board of Dietetics and Nutrition.
As you know from previous blog posts, I have been writing about the lunacy of the government regulating who can and cannot speak about nutrition and diet. The American Dietetic Association (ADA), who is changing their name to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, has been very busy trying to pass a law in all 50 states which would limit registered dieticians as the only group who is licensed to provide nutritional advice. In Michigan, this law was signed by Governor Granholm in 2006 but was never enforced.
