It is sad that there is no federal legislative consensus in the current healthcare reform bill. The attempted bi-partisan effort to place a $35 co-pay cap on insulin failed last week.
It is much more disappointing, however, that we citizens tolerate a food supply chain which inflicts monstrous and mind-roasting quantities of sugar and processed foods on the G.I. systems of adults and children. The adults should know better. The children don’t have a choice.
If we could control unprocessed food, sugar and carbohydrate overload in our diets, the need for insulin would diminish exponentially.
As a country, we need to focus on the cause as well as the symptoms.
