Students for Diabetes Awareness Donut Eating Contest

diabetesawareness

More silliness (source).

Is the word “Awareness” right for the title of this organization? Perhaps they should shorten their name by one word.

    If they just do a blood glucose test before and after for each contestant it would all make sense again.

    One way to become 'aware' of Diabetes is by actually developing it! So, I guess that makes sense. lol

    This reminds me of an American Diabetes Assoc magazine cover I once saw with cookies and a cookie jar for its December issue. What sort of legitimate organization for diabetes would do such a thing? There are no safe refined carbohydrates for diabetics!

    What's next? A drinking contest for liver disease?

    This is a bit unfair. It clearly states that they are students FOR diabetes, a a fact they want us to be aware of.

    Pretty funny. Kind of like "cigarette smoking contest at a lung cancer awareness"

    Students want to do something to raise awareness of diabetes by holding a donuts eating contest!! Seems a bit incongruent to me. Indeed the best solution would be to test glucose levels before and after eating the donuts. Seeing for yourself how eating that sugary stuff will raise your sugar levels will bring home the message much better than a donut eating competition.

    Just hoping they're not medical students ...
