Paul Deen is diabetic—of course she is
I believe that there should be liability affixed to television chefs who blatantly promote unhealthy diets. Their sponsors should be ashamed and some of the products should be declared unfit for human consumption.
Processed wheat products of all kinds are terribly bad. You should not be eating more than a cup of grain a day and it should be whole grain.
All fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meat products should be organic.
There should be no processed or added sugar. No added salt. No filtered juices with added sugar.
If you are overweight, your diet is out of whack. You are on a roll to slow death, and maybe a fast one.
That guy who has show in a contest to eat more than anyone else should be denied health insurance.
“Celebrity Chef Paula Deen Has Type II Diabetes
Deen tells Al Roker on Today Show that she was diagnosed three years ago during a regular physical exam with her doctor.

Celebrity southern chef Paula Deen admitted during an exclusive interview with Al Roker on the Today Show Tuesday (Jan. 17) morning that she was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes three years ago.
The disease was discovered during a regular physical exam with her doctor, said Deen, who encouraged Today viewers to be tested. Regarding the rich, fatty recipes that she cooks on her Food Network show, Deen said she has always encouraged eating in moderation on the show as she herself has always done.
“I’m here today to let the world know that it (diabetes) is not a death sentence,” Deen said. She announced she has been working with a reputable pharmaceutical company and has developed a new program called “Diabetes in a New Light.”
On the program website, she shares her experience with the disease and diabetes-friendly recipes. The pharmaceutical company listed on the website is Novo Nordisk.
Deen told Roker that she had not revealed she had Type II Diabetes sooner because “I had to figure things out in my own head….I wanted to bring something to the table when I came forth.”
Deen also urged people with the disease to find a program that works for them.
Deen's appearance on the Today Show addressed rumors that she had Type II Diabetes.”
