Review for Diabetes Hands Foundation, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I am bothered by the activism of this site toward one fringe diet. It actively advocates ultra low-carbohydrate eating, in line with Atkins, Weston Price, Bernstein, etc. It is also, therefore, anti-American Diabetes Association. This activism extends beyond the many volunteer posts that are made - in fact some of the site administrators as well as the co-founder of this site join in the ultra low-carb, anti-ADA, activism. I would not raise my rating of this foundation until they learn that there is more than one diet that works for diabetics.
