The largest group of nutrition professionals in the United States (The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics) are apparently trying to hide their ties to Big Soda:
We recently wrote about how a Coke consultant, who’s spreading advice in favor of Big Soda, is running for president of the organization. And now attempts are being made (such as demanding posts about conflict of interest to be taken down) to censor her ties to the industry.
It’s pretty awful that The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics doesn’t support full disclosure of industry ties. After all, they are supposed to promote people’s health over the industry’s interests.
