Well the name is only going on the diet products and not on the regular products so let's not take things out of context. And if the JDRF can put their name on products why can't the ADA to raise money? While I agree that processed foods are not healthy for anyone for some people that is all that is available. I do agree that healthy eating habits begin in the home however and that jcandy and pop machines shouldn't be allowed in schools.You guys who've been here the longest already know this stuff, but I figured I would post it for the newbies to the disease and to the forum. It's an article about the ADA and their acceptance of funds from junk food companies, and my favorite part is the top "science" guy at the ADA saying that sugar has "nothing to do" with diabetes.
I have my second diabetes class on Saturday - the "nutrition" class - and I plan to print this article and pass it out to the class in front of the instructor. I'll probably have to stay after class and clap erasers as punishment!
