Bret Michaels gives a celebrity face to diabetes

Musician Bret Michaels, who has had diabetes since the age of six, is joining the American Diabetes Association as their poster boy for the disease.  Their newest awareness campaign, Stop Diabetes, is a series of public service announcements that will feature Michaels as the “Face of Diabetes.”  The hope is that Michaels’ celebrity will get people to stop seeing diabetes as a disease that only afflicts the fat and lazy, and realize that even heavy metal has-beens who have turned to reality TV can be diabetic.  This is actually a really good message, as millions of people have diabetes and don’t even suspect they have it, and it kills nearly a quarter of a million Americans every year.

  1. Diabetes and OBesity Drugs will always ruin the heart and are NOT needed!

    Obesity and Diabetes is the direct result of food chemicals and the drug makers and FDA are laughing all the way to the BILLION DOLLARS BANK.

    Food chemicals break the gut (insulin) and causes diabetes and Obesity (THIS IS PROVEN)

    THAT IS WHY PEOPLE CANNOT LOSE WEIGHT! The diabetes drug makers took in 10 billion$$$ in one year!!! with no cure and drugs that gave heart attacks

    The FDA knows this AND supports the drugmakers!!

    A filmmaker has been reversing diabetes and Obesity in now 10 countries worldwide WITHOUT MEDICATIONS and the drug companies do not promote this

    just google SPIRIT HAPPY DIET
