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 glowing skin, more stamina, and a slimmer figure. The side effects of taking drugs? 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.

    My grandmother went vegan after the doctor told her she needed to lower her blood pressure. She succeeded and says she has never felt healthier 😉

    I doubt she ever will. Her ties to Smithfield are too strong.
