Paleo Blogger Attacked for Dispensing Dietary Advice

Paleo Blogger Attacked for Dispensing Dietary AdvicePaleo 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.

  1. I’m sorry but I agree with the dietic association. Most of these blogs can do more harm than good. No one is an authority on proper food nutrition. There are many countries that survive on various types of diets and are exceeding the United States in Mortality. On top of that, everyone’s biochemistry is different and there have been no scientific studies done on the effects of a grain free diet. There is a lot of mis-information out there said by non-medicallly trained professionals who have a dogmatic approach to nutrition and medicine.

    If you feel better on a diet, fine but create a food blog for what it should entail…recipes.

    • Many people blog to share their opinions. Saying that a food blog should only include recipes seems a bit dogmatic – but you’re certainly entitled to your opinion as well!

    • I guess if you had your way, you would ban people from telling others the benefits of herbal medicine versus chemical medicines made in some factory. It is sad you have been brainwashed by big brother.
      I am all for telling others what has worked and benefited me and can benefit you also. In the history of the world (the old testament) many lived to be several hundred years old and were healthy and producing children. What was their diet? As man has gotten smarter his life has gotten shorter. Learn to use your common sense,,quit letting big brother pull the wool over your eyes.

      • I’m not sure what you’re upset about. I think you’ve got my point of view quite backwards. I’m all for herbal remedies, and my article favors free speech.

        If you read the Old Testament, you know that it was GOD who decided man’s years would be limited to 120.

        Have a great day!
