LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR DIET:  . . . but only if you have a license as a dietician.  This great video from the Stossel show discusses a lawsuit filed in NC by the Institute for Justice, challenging the State’s crackdown on a gentleman who runs a blog advocating a “Paleo”/caveman diet  (meat and fruit/veggies; no processed carbs)  for diabetics like himself.   The State takes the odd position that, while one can write a book about diets (free speech), one cannot run a blog about diets, without a dietician’s license.   Does this comport with the First Amendment’s Free Speech Clause?
