Comment on When raw gurus give dangerous advice by David.
How long before one of these raw “nutritionists” is sued?
While they’re out there giving dangerous advice do they know that in 2008 a qualified nutritional therapist was sued for allegedly causing brain damage in a patient she put on a low-sodium diet and six pints of water a day (which is 3.4 litres) (so advice that is a lot more conservative than the examples in your article.)
According to the media reports like this one the diet caused the brain damage, which is why the patient received damages of over ¬£800,000.
So I hope the banana-wielding, anorexia-cheering raw gurus you’ve referred to here have insurance, but at the same time doubt it.
