We’re sharing the latest developments on yesterday’s story in The New York Times about RD Carole Bartolotto, who contends that she was dismissed from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ GMO policy panel for questioning others’ ties to Monsanto.
One individual on the GMO policy-making panel — one of two members cited to have ties to Monsanto — posted a response on her blog.
Additionally, a petition has gone up, asking the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to:
- Keep Monsanto ties out of their policy-making panel on GMOs
- Reinstate dismissed RD Carol Bartolotto
- Dismiss two members with close ties to Monsanto
NOTE: We had no involvement in this petition and were unaware of its existence until it was brought to our attention by a fellow dietitian.
As of tonight, no comment from AND.
