After
Food Network star Paula
Deen
revealed that
she has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and is now going to plug
pharmaceuticals, PETA wrote to the queen of southern cuisine and urged her to
trade in her chitlins for chickpeas. The side effects of a vegan diet are clear
skin, more stamina, and a slimmer figure. The side effects of
popping pills? Well, listen to the TV spots and count ’em!

In
our letter, we pointed out
that numerous studies have found that adopting a vegan diet can reduce or even
eliminate the need for diabetes medications and
reduces the risk of developing the disease in the first place. A groundbreaking
study published in the journal Diabetes Care found that 43 percent of people with type 2 diabetes who
ate a low-fat vegan diet were able to reduce their medications, compared
to only 26 percent of those who followed the diet recommended by the American
Diabetes Association.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with diabetes, check out Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes and also order one of our free vegetarian/vegan starter kits, which we’ve sent to Paula Deen along with a copy of Sir Paul McCartney’s
Glass Walls DVD. Who knows—maybe the
girl from Georgia could team up with the boy from Liverpool to devise a “wild honey pie” suitable for diabetics and vegans.
