"So today, I want to bring a new light to type 2 diabetes. I, along with [sons] Jamie and Bobby are sharing with Americans an exciting new campaign called 'Diabetes in a New Light,'" said Deen.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
ExploreTalent.com, a premier online social-network for talented individuals in the entertainment industry, announced a new blog on their news site today, titled, "Paula Deen Announces She has Type 2 Diabetes." Explore Talent is a professional site that connects actors, models, musicians and dancers in the United States.

The blog, (http://news.exploretalent.com/paula-deen-announces-she-has-type-2-diabetes/) details that Celebrity chef Paula Deen stopped by the Today Show to speak to Al Roker, and announce that she has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The southern cooking chef shared with the host that she was actually diagnosed about three years ago, but kept the news mum until she can announce it, and make an impact on others with the same disease.
"So today, I want to bring a new light to type 2 diabetes. I, along with [sons] Jamie and Bobby are sharing with Americans an exciting new campaign called 'Diabetes in a New Light.' It's going to be a tasty journey, and I hope that y'all will come along with me," Deen explained to Roker. The campaign will help people with dealing with diabetes by sharing recipes for a healthy, balanced diet, and helping others turn to their dotors to help them find a plan to improve their lifestyle choices.
Ironically, Deen has become famous while whipping up high-calorie recipes on her show, Paula Deen's Home Cooking, for which she has often been criticized. When asked if she believes that her eating habits contributed to her disease, Deen explained, "That is part of the puzzle. On my show I share with you all these yummy, fattening recipes, but I tell people 'in moderation.' You can have that little piece of pie."
