Today is World Diabetes Day and its a special day as it's in the middle of Diabetes Awareness Month.
Todays theme is families and preventing type 2 diabetes in the first instance with education and awareness as many people do not realise they are type 2.
With growing obesity and those with pre-diabetes todays theme is very relevant to us a society as type 2 diabetes can lead to other serious health conditions including blindness and amputations.
We have a Pre-diabetes Topic section and here's a link to World Diabetes Day and another to World Diabetes Month.
With a sensible tweak to diet combined with adequate exercise we could eliminate or reduce type 2 drastically and in this modern world with global markets it should be a very do-able achievement, all we need is market forces to back it...
We literally are what we eat...
