Registered dietitian Chris Cashin has mental capacity questioned.
We have received a complaint to our Low Carb Diabetic forum, un-signed. I presume the complaint was made by Chris Cashin aka Ally5555. Evidently I have suggested she has a mental illness. It would appear Chris Cashin does not know the difference between a statement and a question. To make her complaint even more ridiculous, the question was asked by a person who has never been a member of our forum, namely, the well known low carb expert Ivor Cummins.
Graham had posted on our forum a screen-shot of a tweet made by Ivor on twitter, asking Chris Cashin a question. So, for absolute total clarity, Chris Cashins mental state has not been questioned here, end of!
The complaint talks of harassment, I find it ludicrous that a person who has harassed countless people in the past, with her dire warnings re the low carb diet, yet never offered any constructive criticism based on science.
The complainant talks of my criticism of her and other dietitians. I have every right to criticise anyone, as they can criticise me. Let us not forget, Cashin has spent years criticising our way of life, and the way we successfully control our diabetes. Always negative and never any sound argument put forward. The screen-shot below was posted by the highly respected Doctor Katharine Morrison a low carb expert, a mod at the time on the diabetes.co.uk forum. It sums up the aforementioned dietitian perfectly, and seven years and forty-nine weeks later, nothing appears to have changed.
Maybe Chris Cashin would care to join the Low Carb Diabetic forum, and enthral us with her acumen, I suspect hell will freeze over before that happens. So many times we have seen in the past, people who have so much to say on social media, but when questioned or criticised, they press the block or ban button and play the victim card.
