A2182 is a bill in the New Jersey General Assembly that would make many nutritionists sharing the most basic nutrition advice or calling themselves a "nutritional consultant" guilty of a criminal act!

"This bill would make it ILLEGAL for anyone other than Registered Dietitians to practice nutrition in the state of New Jersey."

I don't see the problem with this. There is a lot of quack nutrition advice. Good nutritionists should be able to get a license with no problem and will ultimately not affect their clients, other than to assure them they are getting good advice.

Many occupations get licensed, why shouldn't they? Here are some others that New Jersey licenses, is nutrition less important than these:

Barber, Beautician, Burglar Alarm Installer, Cemetery Board, Cosmetologists, Cosmetology Teacher, Dental Hygienist, Dental Assistant, Electrologist, Electrologist Instructor, Fire Alarm Installer, Hearing Aid Dispenser, Locksmith, Manicurist, Massage, Bodywork & Somatic Therapist, Ophthalmic Dispenser, Ophthalmic Technician, Orthotist, Polysomnography and many more/

Thank you! This bill is criminal! When you click on visit site, it said you couldn't sign that petition, but if you look for more actions the one that says everyone is the same petition or seems to be the same. In addition, there are numerous important petitions that everyone should sign. (s, n, p, t)

Roger, it will come so far that one may not even announce on the products that some stuf is healthy.
Look at the Codes Allimentarius. http://www.codexalimentarius.org/codex-home/en/

Here in Europe many homeopathic remedies may not tell what are these for. THis thanks to the Codex.
In commercials it is even forbidden that water is healthy.
So stop the New Jersey bill.

Most dieticians give old-fashioned advice - they don't keep up with new information., and are not in faavour of natural supplements.

Connect the fda's consistent attempts to completely control our supplement industry and this bill...It's another step to control.

I'm not surprised.

Doctors want to make a fortune from the uneducated.
