My Father had diabetes which contributed to his early demise.
My youngest brother was diagnosed with the disease in his 20’s. He is committing slow suicide by diet.
Way back last century when I was in my 20’s I was involved in a local professional group in Dallas TX. The speaker I brought in was one of the country’s leading endocrinologists from UT Southwestern Medical Center. After his talk I thanked him for his time and for enduring a dinner of rubber chicken and mushy vegetables. But what I really wanted was free medical advice.

Today I made a warehouse club run. I needed mineral water, coffee, and…spinach. Seriously, I just bought a huge tub of organic spinach. I have no clue what I’m going to use the spinach for but at least I’ll be improving my neural responses.
Kale? No thanks.
