Sweet Sweet Irony

Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with this picture?

Oh, by the way, JDRF stands for “Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Yes, diabetes.

And buying one of these mega-super-wee-wee-wee-all-the-way-home drink jugs, so that KFC will donate a buck to diabetes research–what an AWESOME way to fight diabetes!

Right?

I mean, right?

Unbelievable. Check out Marion Nestle for more on this, including JDRF’s response justifying this choice–that they do type I diabetes, which is not obesity related, so that makes this endorsement fine.

Whatever.

Insane.

  1. It’s like fat-ladden pink buckets of chicken for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. They say it helps get the message to new geographic areas. But what is the message – - that diet has no relationship to cancer?? i think it’s selling out to the devil.

  2. Yeah, I did a post on that too…but YES, you’re exactly right: “let’s cure cancer! Early detection! Pay no attention to those scientists behind the mirror talking prevention, and how big a role diet plays in that…”

    Unbelievable.
