Aajonus Vonderplanitz's credentials
« on: June 07, 2012, 03:15:23 am »
A story on Natural News yesterday stated that AV's PhD is from a diploma mill:

"Aajonus Vonderplanitz PhD, key informant in prosecution of Sharon Palmer and James Stewart, found to have faked academic credentials"
http://www.naturalnews.com/036076_Aajonus_Vonderplanitz_doctorate_nutrition.html#ixzz1wx7oZQWN

What do you all think of this?

I always wondered where his PhD was from. It is odd how although he is one of those nutritional "personalities" he never gives any biographical information, such as where he went to school.

I value AV's work and this doesn't invalidate everything he says about nutrition, but it sure doesn't look good.
