Great education about the US epidemic of diabetes!
Review by Derly on 11/24/21 review stating Great education about the US epidemic of diabetes!
I loved this program. It is the best education I have ever received about diabetes, and how many of of are susceptible to it because of the American diet. It clearly shows the devastating consequences of allowing out blood sugars to become too high. It is really not so much about looking at weight loss, which defeats most of us, but about eating correctly for good health. I am buying it because I want to share this information with my family. Shame on any provider who makes insulin too expensive for the individuals who so desperately need it!!!! At this point, insulin is too expensive for the insured as well as the uninsured.

GREAT HEALTH INFO: Should Be Required Viewing For Youth!!!
Review by M. R. on 03/20/21 review stating GREAT HEALTH INFO: Should Be Required Viewing For Youth!!!
This DVD presents a message of the seriousness of the NEGATIVE and sometimes FATAL domino effect from unhealthy diets and poor healthy food resources. However, it also offer realistic SOLUTIONS along with focusing on PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for our individual health outcomes. Diabetes does not respond to the cry of RACISM, or pointing the finger at our family tree and other external excuses.
