Cooking star Paula Dean has told the world that she has been fighting diabetes for the past 3 years. Having seen her cooking show it is not a shock that she has type 2 diabetes. But what made me upset and confused is how she told the interviewer that she did not blame her cooking style on her disease. She states she has been cooking that way for years.
From a medical stand that is exactly how one develops type 2 diabetes, you just don't have 1 super bad meal and the BOOM, you have type 2 diabetes. It develops over time from a long history of poor eating habits. I think she needs more basic information before she becomes a spokes person for this issue.
