Pam Popper’s experience reveals the hidden dangers of Dietitian Licensing.
It has been interesting to hear the comments of the dietitians who have commented with outrage at my interview with Diane Miller regarding Dietitian Licensing. It makes for an interesting read. I suspect this interview will engender similar outrage as well. Here Pam Popper discusses her battle with Ohio Dietitians and discusses other cases of senseless persecution from dietitians. In my dialog with Dietitians, I repeatedly ask for the evidence for their claim that nutritional advice from non dietitians was dangerous. So the dialog with dietitians is quite revealing. You can read this in the comments of my interview with Diane Miller.
It seems that the dietitians are not really prepared to make their case. This is why when challenged, such as we have done in Wisconsin, their case begins to crumble. The public wants access to additional nutrition services and the dietitians don’t. Their claim of harm and danger to the public seems minimal or non existent. At least no evidence has surfaced here in six years of our battle in Wisconsin.
My offer to dietitians
I will do an interview with any dietitian about the merits of their case. I have offered before here in Wisconsin and had no takers. So if there is a dietitian who wants a chance to make their case with me in a recorded interview, I will put it on the podcast. I would suggest that you be better prepared than some of the dietitians who commented on the podcast. I am in favor of open discussion on this topic and let the listeners decide whose view they prefer. Any takers?
