As many of us know Diabetes is almost an epidemic in this country. A good part of it is due to diet and obesity. That does not mean that genetics does not play a role in it. In fact, more research should be done on metabolic disorders. What can be done to make sure healthy eating habits make a healthy body? How does one have a well balanced diet to reduce metabolic disorders.
Exercise is a big part of it as well. We need to shift our way of thinking and doing. What about metabolic screening tests?
