Vacant lot is the future site of a major project, Las Abuelitas Housing Project

Food, Body & Diabetes
Type 1-body does not produce insulin
Type 2-body does not recognize insulin

Food naturally contains sugar, but food companies add unnecessary amounts of sugar to everything. Our body processes glucose, not fructose.

FA->creates disruptions in insulin sensitivity (biochemistry) and too much FA will create insulin resistent cells

Sugar+Fat+Poor Diet~Diabetes
Sugar+Salt~Poor Kidney's/Kidney Stones/High Blood Pressure

It's all about diet. Exercise plays a role too!

Your body needs everything in proportions.

Fiber-helps feed good microbiota in gut.
Microbiota reduces inflamation of gut caused by less healthy foods.
