And a handful of others. You see, diabetes is big business, insulin costs and insurance will always pay. Diabetes is one of the many preventable diseases that mothers give their children.
Oh yes I did say that. I know there are many different types of diabetes but I also know that some of your children are morbidly obese. It’s not cute, it’s not funny and it’s not “baby fat” when they’re in school.
World Diabetes Day concentrates on the warning signs of diabetes, which the mother of every obese child ought to memorize, because it’s one of the many diseases being delivered to your child, one pop tart at a time.
In a world full of “diet Twinkies” and other Pfood*, would it be too much to ask for the “nonprofits” to actually educate?
In honor of World Diabetes Day I’d like to ask each of my readers to commit to two small changes.
1. Go through your pantry and toss any Pfood* item that has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it.
2. Try feeding yourself and your children foods that don’t have sugar (cane syrup is sugar) listed in the first three ingredients unless it’s a party day.
I’m not asking for major changes, just two small ones, every step counts. Can you? Will you? Maybe then you won’t need to memorize the symptoms of diabetes.
