This is the kind of nonsense I'm talking about, from the article:
"...Rebukes from the self-appointed 'diabetes police' are a sign of public confusion about the differences between her incurable disease and Type 2 diabetes, which is preventable with healthy eating and regular exercise, Ms. Abramson says.
“But we’re all given the stigma of being overweight and lazy,” she adds, “regardless of the type of diabetes we have.”..."
All Type 2's are "overweight and lazy"? Huh.
Then I guess all the millions of people (like my mother) who NEVER exercise and don't develop Type 2 are magically "not lazy" even though they put in zero hours per month on exercise? Meanwhile, the many T2's I know who work out and run daily are "lazy"?
It's a gene-based disease. If you don't have the genes, you don't get it.
