As I was writing earlier here, here and here  about the myth created by academic and industry lobbyist now slowly accepting truth and started publishing accepting thesis. these dietary guideline issued by ADA/ AHA and other parts of the world started followed and now ever reacting over the truth , more over to convince doctors and dietitians about this truth is becoming much harder  since they read / follow their curriculum after all , how do we change this ? please share you guys thought as well.

did you guys find any mistakes ?  its not easy to find out though , OK  let me tell you what is there was box with title SWEET TRUTH in that the numbers provided for diabetes and pre-diabetes were wrong i.e. its flipped, the actual number will be as follows

62.4 million people has diabetes

77.2 million people have pre-diabetes

Ref: ICMR-INDIAB study 2011.

I have contacted the author to correct that mistake at least in online version of it  on that day itself via email but still now I haven’t got any reply from her. why I am bring this here means this case was a typical example of media’s ignorance and dump wrong / unverified information to public , media should be more responsible than ever before.
