The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics(formly the American Dietetic Assoc) asked the owner of a blog giving nutritional advice for diabetics to remove some of his info. or he would face legal action.

So now, he with the help of the Institute of Justice is sueing them.

I don't agree with all of this guys nutrtional advice, for one thing he eats meat and a lot of it. But I believe he has the right to his opinions and free speech. It makes you wonder if one day if they may come after forums like this where nutrtional advice is offered.

Here is a link to his blog and him discussing the case.

Also, look who supports the academy, I guess this is why they give the advice they do.

And the American Diabetic Assoc isn't any better.

Wow, this article you linked is crazy.

So complaining about the water may be considered terrorism? That doesn't even make any sense.
