This posting is about Diabetes type 2.
Today is World Diabetes Day.
Diabetes is an epidemic that is growing into the largest in the world.
Without any good reason except that too many people are having an unhealthy diet.
Diabetes is a deadly condition that is imposed on the patients by themselves.
By not exercising.
By not controlling what they are eating.
This is good news.
Because there are diseases that can strike any human being no matter how healthy that person is living.
Making it very complicated to sometimes save the life.
But diabetes is something people are doing to themselves.
Hence, we could easily stop it by having people truly aware what food and drinks are doing to their bodies.
To bring them to choose to have a healthy way of feeding themselves.
There are more drastic measures like Governments closing down all McDonalds and KFC fast food restaurants because them serving diabetes initiating and enhancing food.
To make illegal the production and sale of Coca Cola and Milky Ways for that same reason.
Less drastic is to stop schools having vending machines selling food and drinks stimulating diabetes.
To serve food in schools, business and army canteens that is healthy.
We can win the fight against diabetes.
As long as we are able to let go of this desire to make money no matter what.
There has been a proposal in the House of Representatives of the USA to oblige by law fast food places like McDonald to put large signs on their walls where people can see how many calories the food has they offer and plan to swallow.
A very good proposal.
But the lobbyists of the fast food business managed to torpedo this proposal and it was dropped.
Was that in the interest of the American people?
No, it was in the interest of the profit of McDonald only.
As long as the Governments give in to the lobbying power of the fast food industry, more people will get diabetes and die.
But together we can make the difference.
By giving a good example.
Demonstrating how to eat healthy.
In this context it is an opportunity to mention a great thing we have on the Internet.
It is a website called Caringbridge.
There you can get free, personalized websites that support and connect loved ones during critical illness, treatment and recovery.
This is a great initiative.
You see family and friends coming together and being supportive in the case when someone falls ill.
The centre of this union is the website.
A fantastic way of using the Internet.
