    WE SHALL ALL HAVE DIABETES, IT IS JUST A MATTER OF WHEN.

    • Futuret, I think most of us are doomed to develop chronic illnesses from our various toxic exposures but not necessarily diabetes. There was a time when people could count on support from their family and community as they became older and suffered health problems. Now this social support is gone, and I think this is what people find so difficult.

  2. The foods that corporations produce for consumption are designed to aid in Big Pharma’s profit margins. They are all out for themselves at the expense of peoples’ health. It is a shame that locally grown and raised is discouraged because once we let corporations mass produce our food, there went our health and wellbeing. And no one can figure out why all of these diseases are popping up that weren’t even around 50 years ago? Look to what’s in the food and water supply. Screw us is what the corporations are saying because the corporate heads know that the toxins that are in our food supply will make us diabetic and worse and hence, we will need another corporation’s ‘cure’ which is no ‘cure’, it just maintains an acceptable glucose level. A win/win for corporations and a lose/lose for us since our health care system is rotten to the core. How can we get and stay healthy when our health care system is so sick?

      I TELL YOU WHAT—I AM SO GLAD THAT I AM NOT A YOUNG PERSON, I AM 63 YEARS OLD AND FEEL THAT I HAVE BEEN BORN TOO LATE. IF I WERE IN MY 80’S I WOULD HAVE HAD MOST OF THIS BEHIND ME, HAD A BETTER EDUCATION, CREATED A BETTER LIFE IN THE YEARS OF SOME MORALITY REMAINING, AND JUST POSSIBLY, JUST POSSIBLY KNOW THAT THERE MAY BE A WARM BED FOR ME TO DIE IN. EVEN THOUGH I AM A WOMAN, I KNOW I COULD MAKE IT MUCH BETTER “BACK THEN” THAN WHAT IS SO EVENTFUL AT THIS MOMENT. JUST WHEN YOU THINK THAT THINGS CAN NOT GET ANY WORSE, IT ALWAYS DOES.

      • You are so right futuret! I wish that I had been born in a time when I would not have lived to see what we are seeing now because as bad as things are now, it is only going to get worse. I look at people who are having babies and I can only shake my head because I wonder how they can bring an innocent life into all of this madness, despair and hopelessness because I would not do that to a child. They are resigning that child to hell on earth! I am quite actually envious of all those who have gone before who never knew any of this madness. They are the lucky ones. Us? Not at all!

    • Shelby, the situation is truly bleak as you describe. The only consolation for me is that the US is a dying empire. This is the inevitable outcome of empires that allow a vast gap to develop between the rich and the poor. Perhaps it is hard to see from within the beast because but it’s really clear from the outside, with the US suffering reversal after reversal in both the economic and foreign policy arena – and with the ruling elite allowing a buffoon like Trump to assume the presidency.

      Meanwhile as the US dollar hangs by a thread, I see millions of young people building alternatives to the corporate lifestyle as they set up buy local communities centered around renewable energy, sustainable transportation, community gardens and farmers markets.
