Went to the Boston expo and met a lot of parents with kids who were recently diagnosed with type 1. I have been reading about the prevalence of type 2 in younger people but the since the majority of people I spoke to had kids with type 1, that makes me start thinking more about the genetic component of the disease. It also makes me think about what effect the environment might be having on these kids. All the foods today that are fortified with stuff and have tons of additives and preservatives – that has to be having some effect.
I know I eat pretty well but should try to be more conscientious when it comes to that. It's definitely hard to limit artificial stuff in the food you eat.
