Judging by the lengthy list of corporate sponsors of next month's DC conference in Edmonton, it doesn't appear there is sufficient public awareness of this conflict of interests for the Canadians to even think of following suit.

General Mills, McCain Foods, PepsiCo...give me a break!

No, the American Dietetic Association is not dropping its corporate sponsors--They declared chocolate as a health food--and accepted Hershey's as a sponsor.
