Paleo blogger Steve Cooksey received a long, disturbing letter from the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition. Because he blogs on the nutrition principles of the Paleo Diet, he was accused providing nutrition advice or nutrition counseling without a license.
The Board ordered Cooksey to take down the nutritional advice or face prosecution. They even prohibited him from offering free dietary advice to friends over the phone!
Why does this concern me – and you?
I believe nutrition is the basis of good health, and we deserve freedom of choice to select what works best for us – and to share our experience and insights! In the U.S., our diets are already influenced by government policies that assist the giant fast food producers and harm small growers. Our citizens become more unwell as real food becomes more expensive, and in some areas, even hard to find.
Our dietary choices and opinions should not be limited or censored by government agencies — or worst yet, criminalized for not aligning with government propaganda.
