As a concerned reader, I felt is was important to share some information that I saw about Jordan S. Rubin on yahoo.com. It is as follows:
Best-Selling 'Maker's Diet' Creator Has Shifty Qualifications
"Thu May 27, 7:30 PM ET
Jordan Rubin has been on top of the world. His newly released diet book, "The Maker's Diet", is a New York times bestseller, and his multimillion-dollar company, Garden Of Life" is thriving.
"Well, he wouldn't be able to open a (doctor's) office in Florida," said Kathleen Kelly, a registered dietician.
Kelly said based on Rubin's creditials, he is no more an authority on health than a normal guy on the street.
Kelly has never even heard of the institutions from which Rubin boasts his 2 PhD's.
"It's amazing. If you have enough money, you can buy a degree," Kelly said.
The country's leading authority on diploma mills, Dr. John Bear, affirms Kelly's comment.
"Both of his doctorates to me are really dubious, highly questionable, and have no validity in the academic world," Bear said.
Still, Rubin calls himself a doctor and wrote a book telling you what to eat and how to supplement your diet.
NewsChannel 25 requested an interview with Rubin to get some answers, and was told he is done with TV interviews.
"Rubin chose institutions that allowed him to pursue distance learning and a non-conventional course of study," said a spokeswoman for Rubin.. "While not accredited by mainstream accrediting bodies, his studies proved to be instrumental in his quest to help others. Jordan Rubin did not intend to mislead anyone or hide anything. He is sorry if this issue has caused any confusion regarding his degrees.
