With the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans under discussion, industry conflicts of interest are highlights of nutrition news. Recently a Premier Sponsor of the US Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), CocaCola, broke ties with the
AND http://buff.ly/1LYgO3F .
Of note, CocaCola continues to maintain sponsorships with:
The American College of Cardiology http://buff.ly/1iRBIpn
The American Academy of Pediatrics http://buff.ly/1O9b8E2
Links below connect you to critiques from Eat Drink Politics on conflicts of interest among national nutrition entities:
US, 2013: The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (aka AND. Of note, sponsors have changed since this was published)
Australia, 2015: Dietitians Association of Australia (aka DAA)
What do you think? Do you agree with Eat Drink Politics that money talks? Or is advice provided by sponsored national organizations in the United States and Australia unbiased and objective, funding sources notwithstanding?
