November is American Diabetes Month

November is American Diabetes Month

Recent numbers by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
paint a desperate situation of where we are at, and where we are headed.

-Every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes.

-Diabetes kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.

-Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have
diabetes in 2030 unless we take steps to Stop Diabetes.

Steps to Stop Diabetes

1. Avoid Processed Foods

2. Cut Down on Animal Products

3. Cut Out Sugar and Diet Sodas and Drink Pure Water

3. Eat Beans, Fruits, Legumes, Nuts, Seeds, Vegetables and Whole Grains

4. Exercise for 30 Minutes a Day Six Days Per Week

    Hello Daniel, Diabetes is so common now a days but we don’t know how to manage it. Your tips are very useful. Thanks for the heads up.

    • Hello Mischelle,
      Moving to a plant based diet, along with daily exercise and using some supplements has helped many thousands of diabetic people get off insulin and other medications.
