New York, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2012
People everywhere are up in arms over the recent announcement from celebrity chef Paula Deen on the "Today Show" that she has type 2 diabetes and is partnering with diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk. The green lifestyle site, eco18.com, recently released an article on the news and is shifting the blame from Deen to individuals who knowingly make poor food choices and who don’t want to pay the consequences. Often times, the consequence of a poor diet can lead to the development of serious health issues, such as diabetes.
As taken from the article:
"What seems to have everyone bashing the Southern “Buttuh Queen” is she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease, three years ago, even as she continued to promote such dishes as “Chocolate Cheese Fudge” and “Sausage Pancake Egg Sandwiches” on her program. And, she went public with her condition while at the same time announcing her latest venture—a partnership with diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk.
But surely people do not think they can eat the kind of foods Paula cooks on a regular basis and not suffer some dire health crisis—or do they?
There is certainly no lack of information on diabetes and how diet plays an integral role in bringing about the disease. There is a healthy recipe popping into my inbox every day, and yes, I might want to have an egg, bacon and cheese roll much more than I want a bowl of berries, but come on, I’m an adult I have to make responsible food choices.
So, is Paula Deen, and her celebrity chef friends at the Food Network, to blame, or do we just want to shift our responsibility to someone else?"
