So I recently found this "Diabetes Resource Guide, the Power to Heal Diabetes in Indian Country." Not only is it full of misinformation and lacking science, it is encouraging people to adopt a high soy-based, high grain based VEGAN diet to "heal" their diabetes.
"guide" found here:
As a T1D of four years who manages her blood sugar with a low-carb, higher fat and heavy on the greens diet, my main concern with this "resource guide" is the human rights issue. Aren't more people certain to get WORSE diabetes and/or develop diabetes when encouraged to eat macaroni soup, ramen soup, and bread pudding with SIX CUPS of whole wheat bread?!?! This is misinformation beyond belief, not backed by science and not relevant to diabetes care.
Also, as a Native woman, this pulls at my heart to think that this misinformation is actually just PETA propaganda. What a nightmare. The main "MD" behind this guide is really an animal rights activist who is putting animals before human health. He is not only at the head of the Physicians for Responsible Medicine, (a PETA front) but also the main reporting physician for PETA.
My goal is to create a comprehensive resource guide about diabetes that is culturally and scientifically sound, not just vegan propaganda. Thanks for listening and any advice appreciated.
