I am not a big fan of many of these unaccredited colleges and courses even though they may sound great. While they may offer some good info that can be helpful, most of them are also full of other info that is of questionable value or worth.
Yeah, but the *accredited*, "legitimate" colleges teach quackery too! As I wrote in another thread, when I studied nutrition at one of the largest universities in the country, they portrayed vegetarianism as a fad diet followed only by the trendy or naïve. And the very first question on the very first test was something like, "Vegan diets are likely to be deficient in: (a) Protein (b) Calcium (c) Iron (d) Vitamin B12 (e) All of the above" You can guess what the "correct" answer was. I'm also willing to bet that most colleges erroneously teach that plant protein is "incomplete".
But if you're going to get bad info no matter where you go, then you might as well go with the accredited program, because then you at least have some credibility.
One of the great things about Jeff is that he doesn't just take some authority's word for it when they make some claim about nutrition. He goes to the actual scientific studies to see what they actually say. Both the unaccredited and legitimate colleges teach stuff that's not backed by the actual science, so going to the studies is the only way to really know what's true and what's not.
