Dietitian - a protected title

At the start of December 2008, the Health Professions Council (HPC) launched a joint media campaign with the British Dietetic Association (BDA) to raise awareness of the protected title 'Dietitian' and to warn consumers against seeking advice from unregulated and inappropriately qualified sources.

Go to www.hpcheck.org to see if the person advsing you or your family is suitably qualified and it's also worth looking at Dr. Ben Goldacre's comments about certain high-profile media ' nutritionists' at www.badscience.net .
