Nutrition Advocacy Group Makes Headway in Protecting Your Freedom of Choice

Story at-a-glance -

  • The American Dietetic Association (now calling itself the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics or AND) is threatening your freedom of choice about whom you consult for nutrition and dietary advice
  • AND is trying to create a de facto monopoly for registered dietitians (RDs), helping pass state laws that prevent almost anyone else from legally giving nutritional advice, with devious tactics to eliminate the competition
  • Tactics include incentives for RDs to spy on non-RD practitioners in order to gather evidence of violation of monopoly laws, paving the way for steep fines and even criminal prosecution of non-RD practitioners
  • AND is largely partnered with and funded by the processed food/junk food industry, with continuing education sponsored by Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Mars, Nestle, and Kraft Foods
  • The Center for Nutrition Advocacy has organized the broader nutrition community; as a result, over the last two years, no state has succeeded in passing a monopoly law and some are even overturning them
