Hiya

I've just received an email concerning the petition we signed which said:

"You may wish to be aware that following discussions with Diabetes UK, the Department of Health have decided to modify the Change4Life advertising materials to make clear that obesity leads to type 2 diabetes". :D

Does this mean the advert will also be changed?

On second thoughts perhaps it would have been better if they said "obesity MAY lead to type 2...."

Ive just got the same e-mail and agree that it might be better to say MAY lead. Not all T2's are over weight and T2 can also run in the family as it is in my case.

Not sure if they will change TV advert as they cost a lot of money to produce and to edit - but lets just wait and see if they do change it.

At least us signing the petition did some good.
