Emergency Action Alert!
Oppose CA AB-575 – Stop the Dietitian Monopoly in California

 

Please forward this message to everyone you know in California and ask them to take action TODAY by sending a message to their legislators by clicking on this link:-

And, attend the committee hearing in Sacramento on Tuesday 4/26 and make your voice heard.

California Assembly Bill 575 creates a monopoly on nutrition services for dietitians, in effect denying consumers access to expert advice from nutritionists, some of the most highly educated and well-respected professionals in the field of nutrition. Presented as a regular licensing bill for dietitians this bill actually limits the practice of other nutrition professionals. Under this bill nutritionists must go through the dietetic program and licensure in order to practice medical nutrition therapy.

As we told you before,
http://www.anh-usa.org/american-dietetic-association-monopoly/
 the American Dietetic Association (ADA) has sponsored legislation in over 40 states. This is the organization that lists among its corporate sponsors soft drink giants Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, cereal manufacturers General Mills and Kellogg’s, candy maker Mars, and Unilever, the multinational corporation that owns many of the world’s consumer products brands in foods and beverages.

The negative implications of AB 575 are far reaching.

    *

      Bad for an already struggling California economy. This bill would effectively eliminate an entire profession and removes all competition in the field of nutrition services.
    *

      Dampens freedom of choice in healthcare: Nutritionists and dietitians have entirely different philosophical approaches. Each individual has unique nutritional needs and therefore deserve access to choice. It's not a one-size-fits-all approach.
    *

      Threatens to increase chronic health indicators among Californians: Nutritionists practice an integrative approach to medicine and concentrate on prevention and treatment of chronic disease. Access to nutritionists should be broadened, not reduced.
    *

      Penalizes a higher standard of education and training: For example, Certified Nutrition Specialists certified by the Certification Board for Nutrition Specialists (CBNS) have a Master's degree at a minimum, usually a Ph.D., yet are excluded by this bill unless they meet the requirements of dietitians.

I presume that non-Americans would be wasting their time by responding to the Bill as they don't vote in the US, but I urge all American RPDers to send in their responses to all such Bills as the more freedom we get in general, even in unrelated areas, will mean more freedom, indirectly, in other areas, such as food-production or whatever.

One reason why I am glad to be in a place called Arizona...

Getting sheriffs to act on this, is another story, but the precedent is there.
