Recently, Paula Deen (the famous southern cook) announced she has Type 2 diabetes. What apparently irked many was she discovered this 3 years ago, and waited to make a general announcement until such time as she had secured a deal with a diabetes treatment company.
Okay, I will admit that the way it all played out seemed like she was more interested in monetizing her situation, rather than using her public influence to educate others about diabetes.
But what really baffles me is folks lamblasting her for the food she cooks. Namely, blaming the butter and fried foods for her diabetes.
