In North Carolina, a health blogger is facing the possibility of being sued for writing and publishing his story about how he got rid of diabetes following the paleo diet. Steve Cooksey drew attention to himself when attending a talk hosted by an official dietician. He questioned her theories and handed out his business card at HER event and three days later, he had a call from The North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition telling him that his website was being investigated. The board explained that he was giving health advice without suitable credentials.
Does free speech not give Steve the right to tell people suffering from diabetes how to overcome it?
