In Defense of Natural Health Retailing -
A Rebuttal to the CBC Attack on Health Retailers
TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ - On Tuesday, June 8, 2010 CBC news published an article entitled "Health food store advice not scientific: study." This reported on an article from the December 2009 edition of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition (JACN), which is the house organ of the American College of Nutrition (ACN) representing professional nutritionists. Though the JACN is supposed to be a bi-monthly publication, there has not been another issue since the December 2009 edition. The ACN is heavily supported by funding supplied by pharmaceutical and mega-food processors. In 2006, Integrity in Science cited the JACN for failing to reveal "that its editor and several authors had long standing ties to the food industry."(1) The ACN and nutritionists associated with it have long been outspoken and persistent critics of the natural health industry, which they view as a threat to their business interests.
