As noted here, I e-mailed the British Association for Nutritional Therapy (BANT) to complain about some of Holford’s problematic online health advice. I have not, as yet, even had a reply from BANT – not even an acknowledgement of my e-mail.
This is an organisation which represents itself as
a professional body for nutritional therapy practitioners and those working in the wider application of nutritional science
BANT asserts that it seeks to
promote high standards of education, training, practice and integrity in the nutrition profession
Given these goals, I am rather disappointed by this lack of response – I would argue that BANT should have sought to deal with this promptly.
