January 17 2012 - 12:57 PM

PaulaburgerCBS News published on Paula Deen's admission of having type 2 diabetes. We ironically printed a piece on her Doughnut Burger just last week. Go figure? Leave it to Bourdain to sum it up.

"When your signature dish is a hamburger in between a doughnut, and you've been cheerfully selling this stuff knowing all along that you've got Type 2 Diabetes … It's in bad taste if nothing else" Anthony Bourdain

"I have made simple changes in my life, like cutting back on one of my favorite things, sweet tea – and for a Southern girl, that's a big deal."  –Paula Deen

I wonder the % of chefs who suffer for their food (medically)?
