My response to “Revisiting Ice Cream and Diabetes”

In case you didn’t get the memo: Yes, those of us with diabetes CAN eat ice cream.

That statement is so fracking ignorant and irresponsible that I can’t even formulate a cogent response. I’m so angry.Diabetes is not normal. Neither is eating a bowl full of fat and sugar with ZERO nutritional value. Dr. Joel Furhman would read this and weep. I think he would call this “exteme-titis”.

When we grasp the amazing reality that eating a high-nutrient, plant-based diet is normal; that eating an apple instead of a piece of cake is normal; that eating some steamed veggies instead of a pan of pizza, or eating a salad instead of bag of chips is normal; that not having diabetes, heart disease, strokes, cancer, and dementia is normal; not having astronomical medical and pharmaceutical bills is normal; that enjoying pleasurable sex in the middle age years and beyond is normal; and that feeling well, attractive, and enjoying life is normal. ~ Emily Boller
