Apology to Christine Cronau

An article entitled "Backlash over Murdoch Uni’s decision to host ‘dangerous nutrition expert’” (8 June 2017) may have been taken by some readers as suggesting that Christine Cronau was not appropriately qualified to practice as a nutritionist.  

This was never intended.  

We accept that Ms Cronau holds a government accredited Advanced Diploma of Nutritional Medicine, and is an accredited member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society, a recognised provider association for nutritionists.  

If anyone understood the article as suggesting the contrary, we apologise to Ms Cronau for any harm or embarrassment caused.
