Do you think it was wrong of Paula Deen to wait three years to admit she had diabetes, meanwhile being a bad example, and then admit now when she's profiting from promoting diabetes meds?
Today on the Today Show, this was a discussion. Southern chef, cooking show host and cookbook author Paula Deen found out that she had diabetes three years ago. Of course, people are all entitled to their privacy, and discuss their health issues when they are ready to. However, in the three years since, she has not taken the opportunity to make her recipes healthier, instead cooking foods on her shows and in her cookbooks that are full of sugar and high in fat.
Now she comes out and admits she has diabetes, just in time to be a paid sponsor for a diabetes medication.
Did she do a wrong thing by continuing to cook unhealthy recipes after being diagnosed with diabetes (whether she admitted the diabetes in public or not)?
Did she do a wrong thing by having her diabetes discussion coincide with the pharmaceutical company deal, as a paid sponsor for the diabetes medication?
