I want to make this clear… I do not seek out people or businesses to harass. I only attempt to correct…
“misunderstandings, untruths or deceptions”
Often times in the course of “correcting” those issues mentioned above, the ADA Minion in question will attempt to lie or deceive further…resulting in a longer drawn out confrontation.
Another example of this is below…. had the company below not promoted itself as a “diabetes friendly” company and had it not promoted the ADA Meal Plan as “diabetic friendly” … our paths would not have crossed and I would not have confronted them.
HOWEVER …. they did and therefore I did.
Here is how these things happen.
1) I read a post that shows “WholeGrainBread” which is the twitter name for a bread company, bragging about holding a “bake sale” for diabetes. (see the Tweet below)
Of course, the absurdity of this will be lost on some… but for those that are not under the “spell” of an ADA Minion… you know that grains increase blood glucose which means that grains increase the amount of drugs and insulin that must be used.
Since taking drugs needlessly is NEVER a good idea…. avoiding grains means less drug usage.
Common Sense …right? … sadly… not to ADA Minion who promote grains for diabetics.
2) Having read the ridiculous tweet promoting a “bake sale” for Diabetes…. I felt compelled to respond (see below).
Twitter-speak can be cryptic… in summary I was asking the American Diabetes Association (ADA) if they were supporting this bake sale. This is a rhetorical question…. the ADA has supported them in the past and let’s be honest… the ADA does not care where the money comes from…as long as they get the money.
I was also stating my opinion of the whole thing as being “pathetic”.
I then added…
3) WholeGrainBread of course was going to take offense to me calling the bake sale pathetic and equating their bake sale to Alcoholics Anonymous having a “liquor sale” for alcoholics.
However, their defense was… also “pathetic” see below.
Their defense is complicated and very profound … that’s why I call it the “liar liar pants on fire” defense. LOL!
Seriously, let’s look at their defense.
a) We know that to a diabetic (to everyone) grains spike blood sugar, this spike is like poison to a diabetic and will require drugs and / or insulin to reduce the blood sugar spike. Failing to do so will cause cellular and even organ damage, ultimately leading to organ failure and amputations. THAT is a fact.
I could go on and on but will at least mention the carb addiction etc …. my Alcoholics Anonymous analogy is not far fetched.
b) The bread company raises money for diabetics …. and somehow this makes it ethical for them to market their bread products as “diabetes friendly” … HELL NO! … raising money does NOT change the facts. THAT is a fact.
c) Endocrinologists and Nutritionists blah blah blah defense. I have seen ENDOs approve candy bars that were on a nutritional par with a Marathon bar as being “diabetic friendly”…. so having an Endo / CDE / Nutritionist approve something… means nothing.
ALL of them benefit if diabetes epidemic grows… the more diabetics eating grains = more business. That is a fact.
Additional comment… I did ask the GrainHead for a list of his Endocrinologists and Nutritionists… I guaranteed them they were tainted by money from American Diabetes Association, Big Pharma or Monsanto…. guaranteed it.
Right after I made that request and claim… the GrainHead “blocked me” and stopped responding.
Question EVERY THING YOU HEAR…
Become a DIABETES WARRIOR!!!!
TEST EVERY THING YOU EAT OR DRINK to make sure that it does not cause a blood sugar spike.
Here’s how I eat, my diabetic nutrition chart.
