Why do nutritionists need insurance?

Even the best nutritionist can make a mistake on a busy day, or have a patient who suffers an adverse reaction to a recommended food or supplement. Business insurance gives you peace of mind and covers the cost of patient lawsuits, workplace injuries, storm damage, and data breaches. State laws, landlords, and clients may require coverage.
