So much for free speech: health blogger could be arrested for telling others about how he beat his diabetes
The right to an individual’s free speech faces even more hurdles, as a health food blogger may be subjected to arrest for advocating to his readers how he cured his diabetes; just one of the many rights under fire in America today, including due process and the most basic right, the right to live.
An April 23, 2012 article, State Threatens to Shut Down Nutrition Blogger, appearing on the Carolina Journal Online, Sara Burrows explains how the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition is threatening blogger Steve Cooksey with jail time for publicly stating his battle with diabetes and promoting others to choose his lifestyle.
In February 2009, Cooksey was hospitalized with diabetes. Cooksey then adopted the low-carb, high-protein Paleo diet, commonly referred to as the “caveman” or “hunter-gatherer” diet.
Within 30 days of Cooksey beginning the diet, he was drug and insulin free and by May 2009, he lost 45 pounds and decided to blog about his story.
