Re "Dietitians'education often has corporate agenda" (Sunday Business, March 2): Registered dietitians are required to complete undergraduate courses in organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, and food chemistry as well as biology, anatomy, physiology, and nutrition along with accompanying labs.

In addition, they must complete a supervised internship of work in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and the community. This preparation equips them to judge the quality of continuing education courses and other research regardless of the sponsor.
