So I know this is not a food question per say, but it is a question about the responsibility of public food figures. I'm wondering what this food community thinks about the Paula Deen/ type two diabetes controversy. As much as I am dedicated to a healthy lifestyle and all for healthy food for children, especially in schools, I'm not sure it's a chef's responsibility to promote healthy eating. And if the problem is the way she cooks, I'm not certain her personal health should be part of the equation. Thoughts?
