I was looking through the ADA website to find information about the diabetes expo Runthi posted about and came to this blog page "Tell Congress to Stop Diabetes!"
On March 10, people were urged to call into congress and urge your senator to increase 2012 funding for diabetes research and prevention programs.
I was wondering if anybody called and what was the reaction on the other side?
Also, I was wondering if anybody has a reaction to the wording 'Stop Diabetes'. It feels like a misrepresentation. Don't you think? It is not an infectious disease that can be stopped. Some time back I read a discussion about CDC's use of words 'prevent diabetes'
I feel that using words like 'stop diabetes' ADA might be doing a disservice by adding misconceptions to already misunderstood disease.
