I can't abide advertising of any kind - let alone ads which promote junk food - people see mass advertising as 'entertainment'- I have actually heard people discussing ads as though they are movies - "have you seen that ad where ....'?- unbelievable.
Don't watch ads, don't buy shit food or junk stuff and that's all that's on tv, rubbish.

The medical system does nothing? More ignorance. Diabetic educators (specially trained nurse) educates these people, whether they adhere to the advice and structure given is on them.

My sister was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 3.
I dont think it had anything to do with the way my parents brought her up,as myself and my 3 other sisters never had it.
We had no family history of it,but saying that it may have not been unrecongnised in other generations.
I find it a bit unfair that someone has put the blame on my parents for her condition.
My sister passed away in 2009 due to complications arising from diabetes.
She had gone through the renal failure with her kidneys and my mother even donated one of hers to her which gave her another couple of years.
But in the end i think she had just had enough.
She was only 42 and i miss her alot.
So for someone to put the blame on my parents really pisses me of.
Hi sweetie.. Very sorry about your sis & may GOD rest her soul. Just wanted to clear up the fact that this article specifically says "Kids suffering with TYPE 2 DIABETES" My son is Type 1 also & being that your late sister was also Type 1, we know there is a HUGE difference in the two types. So much so, that Type 1 should be called something totally different that diabetes. Especially with the fact that Type 1 makes up only 5% off all diabetes cases. The other 95% being Type 2 Diabetes. Anyways, you shouldn't be upset that about the article here just because you made a mistake in reading it & I didn't want you to be. So, prayers with love always & GOD bless you
