  1. Andy Bellatti's article is right on - having been a dietitian for 20 years and a parent for 14, I am tired of how our profession ignores the onslaught of disease-causing food patterns with continuing platitudes to the food industry under the mantra of "choice" and the threat of "eating disorders" if we take more of a "tell it like it is" attitude with clients and the public. I also teach nutrition students, and will be discussing this article next term!
