This makes me feel uncomfortable and ought to be a lesson to us all. Be careful what you eat and who you take advice from. None of us should be shocked that Paula Dean is a diabetic. Her dishes are a heart attack waiting to happen. What is most astonishing is that she waiting several years to share this news and didn’t care to change her message or branding. She isn’t alone. There are plenty of people who are aware of the diabetes in their families, etc. They still eat as though they have arteries made of miracle skin.
