I am as guilty as the next man when my prejudices are challenged and react by bridling. My views are trenchant and well known here.
I am changing my stance.
No longer am I going to treat people who disagree with my views with ill disguised contempt. They are human beings with aspirations the same as myself - love of life, love of family and a healthy respect for themselves. Yes, they may hold diametrically opposing views to myself, but that does not mean I am right.
For the future I will will be more gentle in my stance, for I may be wrong in all I espouse.
If we get together and pool knowledge to get to a consensus that challenges the current paradigm, then we can consign type 2 diabetes to the dustbin of history.
None of us are as smart as all of us.
