The many conditions that exist under the umbrella of diabetes affect more than one billion people worldwide. Over 100 million Americans suffer from diabetes related issues in various forms. According to studies diabetes has been identified as one of the leading causes of cardiovascular disease, dementia and cancer * Along with that, statistics show for the first time how kids are developing Type 2 diabetes by the thousands; increasing our need for global attention.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that nearly 24 million Americans(including 23% of those over 60) suffer from Type 2 diabetes. It now affects more than 240 million people worldwide. Between 1983 to 2007 diabetes increased seven-fold, from 35 million to 240 million. The effects are not only causing a huge economic burden worldwide but most important decreasing the quality of healthy living.
Diabetes, including all of its complications, is a downstream of symptoms that are a result of improper diet, lifestyle and environmental toxins interacting with our unique genetic susceptibilities. More than ever before an outlook of proper nutrition is crucial. Research shows Organic and Non-GMO food provides higher concentrations of protective detoxifying, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. The epidemic of chronic illness from which we suffer globally should make us all stop and think about how we live and the choices we make every day in the food we eat and the products we purchase.
Un-managed Type 2 diabetes can lead to life-threatening complications. Fortunately, you can manage your Type 2 diabetes through proper nutrition, supplements and lifestyle choices.
