It’s been a long fight, but it appears that Steve Cooksey has finally won. You may remember hearing about Cooksey, the paleo diet blogger, who was told by the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition that he had to cease publishing his blog about the paleo diet and how he’d used it to overcome diabetes. According to the board, he was practicing dietetics without a license.
Last week, the Board finally agreed last week to drop it’s case against Cooksey and change its guidelines to allow blogs like his.
Here is a great video from the Institute for Justice explaining Steve’s story and why it matters for all of us.
