Dietetic Association Vying for Monopoly

Post image for Dietetic Association Vying for Monopoly

'The American Dietetic Association (ADA) is sponsoring legislation in over 40 states, at this very moment, that would adversely affect the future of alternative nutritionists. They want to lump all nutritionists with registered dieticians into one licensing scheme.

At first glance this seems a great opportunity for many nutritionists to become licensed. However in order for the existing nutritionist to get this license, they would have to complete a dietician program (that teaches conventional dietetics) in order to practice nutritional therapy. Nutritionists and registered dieticians have completely different philosophical approaches to nutrition therapy, and they should be recognized as such. There needs to be separate boards for nutritionists and dieticians, and separate examination requirements as well for licensure to accurately reflect these differences.'
