I checked on this bit of news, in fear of being fooled by one of those spoofs that seem so real. It is real: A Utah Kentucky Fried Chicken is promoting diabetes research by
asking customers to help fight diabetes — by purchasing an 800-calorie Mega Jug of sugary soda to wash down their meals. For every $2.99 half-gallon drink it sells, the chicken restaurant promises to give $1 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
And one wonders why so much of scientific research within the medical establishment is tainted and specious. A JDRF spokesman stated that the Type 1 diabetes his organization researches is not caused by diet or obesity. Of course, there is a whole lot of science inside or outside of the medical establishment that points to early diet playing a role in Type 1 diabetes, whether in the womb or after birth. For example, corn syrup in infant formula, to get the “sweet” hook on babies. For the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (a quasi-governmental, establishment organization that benefits from the disease it pretends to want to eradicate) to claim otherwise is fraudulent.
