The epidemic of diabetes is getting worse instead of better. Some experts don’t even limit the statistics to Type 2.  Most experts say that the major cause of diabetes is obesity. A major cause of obesity is too much consumption of sugary drinks.

 

There is a simple way to solve the obesity problem. Drink a little more water and a little less sugar drinks, then drink a little more water and a  lot less sugar drinks, then drink lots of water and no sugar drinks. Many Doctors are calling processed sugar a drug. Just choose not you use it.
