Re: DIABETES DIET WAR

Discussion in 'Health and medical' started by [email protected], Jul 10, 2003.

  1. This is a curious contradiction. The one person group at the link below
    advocates an ultra high carb diet, as seen in the meal plans given, while
    the article appended below says a diabetic should avoid that exact same
    diet type. So which is it, follow the article or the meal plans on the
    web site, both can't be what a diabetic should do? That site is a bait
    and switch site for anti animal product consumption propaganda.

    BULLSHIT! The PCRM is a vegan/animal rights organization masquerading
    as a medical organization. Very few of its members are physicians, they're
    almost all animal rights activists. Basically, PCRM is a front-group
    for PETA. They like diets that don't harm animals. They don't give a
    damn whether the diet harms diabetics or not.
