Is It Child Abuse?

In my last blog post I promised to give you my strong opinion on Type 2 diabetes in kids…and here it is!

Should adult-onset diabetes in kids be considered a form of child abuse? I know that seems so extreme, but Type 2 diabetes is referred to as adult-onset diabetes for a reason: it’s something that only adults used to experience. But we’ve experienced a more than a 1,000 percent increase in Type 2 diabetes in children over the past two decades.

This is a disease that is nearly 100 percent preventable and reversible if the proper action is taken.

Read my article Is Type 2 Diabetes a Form of Child Abuse in the Columbian to learn more specifics and simple ways to make changes at home that can make a HUGE difference!
