Meanwhile over in the US a group of dietitians has broken away from the mainstream and formed Dietitians For Professional Integrity who say. "Those of us who co-founded Dietitians for Professional Integrity are nutrition experts first and foremost; we went to school to help people achieve better health through food, not to help multinational food companies sell more unhealthy products"
The fact is, just about every dietetic organisation in the world is in the grip of junk food. Even outfits that do not appear to have direct links, are being sponsored by, or have members who are on the junk food payola list. It is my opinion dietitians should have no links to food companies whatsoever, especially the high sugar junk foods that have reaped havoc on health for decades. Will we be seeing a Dietitians for integrity in the UK? time will tell.
