BAD SCIENTISTS CAN’T HANDLE CRITICISM: Nina Teicholz disinvited from food policy panel.
In a sign that the nutrition space is as defensive as ever, Nina Teicholz, an author who has publicly criticized the science behind the government’s low-fat dietary advice, was recently bumped from a nutrition science panel after being confirmed by the National Food Policy Conference. The panel instead will include Maureen Storey, president and CEO of the Alliance for Potato Research and Education. The event is set to take place in Washington next month.
Teicholz said she was disinvited after other panelists said they wouldn’t participate with her.
What do they think this is, Emory University?
