Civil Eats

From HuffPost 'The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' Big Food Controversy':
  • For years, many of my colleagues and I have voiced our discontent that the professional organization that represents us takes money from and partners with the likes of Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McDonald's, and Hershey's, supposedly to foster dialogue with the industry and help Americans get healthier. In reality, Big Food gets free press for feigning concern, while going about its usual business, and the registered dietitian credential gets dragged through the mud.
I know that the paleoscene has been accused of hysteria when it comes to BigAgri, BigPharma and BigGovernment, but heck, the smell-test is the same.  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
