Can't have the slaves finding better solutions to their problems than the establishment provides; they might figure out they don't need the establishment.


State Threatens to Shut Down Nutrition Blogger
Nutrition board says he needs a license to advocate dietary approaches

CHARLOTTE — The North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition is threatening to send a blogger to jail for recounting publicly his battle against diabetes and encouraging others to follow his lifestyle.

Chapter 90, Article 25 of the North Carolina General Statutes makes it a misdemeanor to “practice dietetics or nutrition” without a license. According to the law, “practicing” nutrition includes “assessing the nutritional needs of individuals and groups” and “providing nutrition counseling.”

Steve Cooksey has learned that the definition, at least in the eyes of the state board, is expansive.

When he was hospitalized with diabetes in February 2009, he decided to avoid the fate of his grandmother, who eventually died of the disease. He embraced the low-carb, high-protein Paleo diet, also known as the “caveman” or “hunter-gatherer” diet. The diet, he said, made him drug- and insulin-free within 30 days. By May of that year, he had lost 45 pounds and decided to start a blog about his success.

Threaten jail time for discussing personal experiences in a blog.
They could start to throw someone in jail for speaking about their health experiences to a group of people at a social gathering.

People helping people is now a crime, vote them all out.

Of all their evil, their blatant attacks on our health is the most heinous. Some might even call it murder. But governments are the biggest contributor to human mortality.


One day we'll realize that adults don't need babysitters, especially ones that raid the liquor cabinet and abuse those in their care.
