"But before we tar all “registered dietitians” with the same brush, and I don’t I promise, let me define bullsh*t and the three types of “registered dietitians” I have come across. Based on Professor Harry Frankfurt (1986) essay “On Bullsh*t” we get diet truth tellers, we get diet liars and we get diet bullsh*tters. Truth tellers convey the facts, with measured caution. Liars know the facts, but willfully mislead. But bullsh*tters just make up any story to impress the people that pay money or take the time to listen to them. (See Ben Goldacre’s book – Bad Science). "
Unfortunately this syndrome is not exclusive to dieticians.
