Letter to the BMJ

I have recently had a letter published in the BMJ Online in response to Tim Schwab’s article entitled ‘Dietary disclosures: how important are non-financial interests?’ This discusses whether or not nutrition researchers should disclose their own dietary preferences because of the potential for these to result in bias. In particular he asks “are all diets conflicts of interest or only some? In research about the vegan diet, should only vegan researchers disclose?”
