isn't that generally the opinion that dieticians have about nutrition, though?

I have a dietician friend (long-term vegan, by the way) who would flip out about this conversation.CannondaleKid wrote:Like many other fields, I believe (as does Tracey, who is a Dietetic Technician) that the science of nutrition is almost as evidence-based as phrenology.
