I think we are all making to much of this. To my knowledge, Facebook has not violated any laws in the USA. We (the collective we) agreed to operate on their terms. And we've done it for many years. It seems many are no longer happy with the arrangement. Perhaps it's time we negotiated a new agreement.
But there is definitely some benefit to the collection and use of social interaction and personal data for limited purposes. Let's enable those.
Could this be true? I developed Type-1 diabetes very late in life but I grew up in the West Indies where I had fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.
“The majority of kids with diabetes autoimmunity will go on to get diabetes, but it could be years before they do,” study author Jill Norris, Ph.D., professor of preventive medicine and biometrics at the University of Colorado in Denver, told Ivanhoe. “You can actually have autoimmunity for a while before you get clinical diabetes.” - via the Diabetes Channel on Ivanhoe
On October 28 I will be walking in the Walk to Cure Diabetes event benefiting the Mid-Jersey Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
My personal fund raising goal is $1000. I would appreciate any support that you could give me for this very worthwhile cause.
Since there are more than 18 million Americans affected by diabetes, I believe that my work with JDRF is important and well worth the effort. I am particularly proud of the fact that JDRF has provided more funding for diabetes research than any other non-governmental agency in the world.
Please visit my Walk Web page if you would like to donate online or see how close I am to reaching my personal goal:
Thank you for considering this request for your support. If you have any questions about the Walk to Cure Diabetes, or the work of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, please do not hesitate to call me.
