On sep 19th there was an article written in Times of india news paper about “Diet, Exercise reduce diabetes heart disease by 75% study” as shown below image
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.
