Jamie Oliver's gaffe re Type 1 Diabetes

Calling anyone whose family is affected by Type 1 Diabetes - Jamie Oliver has been campaigning in the US for children to drink water instead of sugary drinks, which was all fine, until he made the major schoolboy error of associating sugary drinks with Type 1 Diabetes, with an offensive picture which is getting tens of thousands of ill-informed "likes" on FB. I've written an Open Letter to him on my blog asking him to set the record straight and am doing all I can to spread the word. My husband and daughter both have Type 1 diabetes, btw. Your input, thoughts, and any support you can offer would be much appreciated. Open Letter to Jamie Oliver: What You Should Have Said About Diabetes

Bumping for you. I think your letter is great - explains exactly what was wrong and how to fix it. Good luck!
