First it was the "largest diabetes forum in the UK" then the "largest diabetes forum in Europe" now it ls soon to be the "largest diabetes forum in the World" How long before 'the teeth' is telling us we are the largest diabetes forum in the known Universe. Meanwhile everyone with a half functioning brain, knows the number of members quoted is complete and utter codswallop. It might make "the teeth" feel good, but sure isn't fooling potential advertisers. Hence the star attractions are the free meal plan book, a guinea pig for drug trials exercise, and the win a free meter competition, no one ever lost.
I think Mr. Panesar prefers banned members, far less grief for his toe the party line numbskull mods. The worst case scenario for the forum of flog, is a member who can think, and see through the subterfuge and is a low carber. He can't flog them a thing, and what would a low carber need with forum of flog money making drug trials. Only yesterday, banned low carbing flog members, who still make up the members list, received an invitation for diabetes trials. And check out the less than stunning results from members on the type two testing program 0.9 mmol, as mentioned in the sales mailshot. Low carbers (before being banned) were reporting up to a full 6% mmol reduction in HbA1c. Achieved very often by diet alone, and sometimes, some very cheap and long term tested Metformin.
I wonder how keen Mr. Panesar would be up for testing big pharma's latest failed science experiment on himself. That being said, I would not mind seeing how he reacted to a shot of sodium pentothal aka the truth serum.
BTW One week on and I have received no reply from Mr. Panesar regarding my second open letter to him which can be read here. It would appear asking a straight question to Mr. Panesar is like waiving a cross at a vampire.
