d-blog week: to all the sweeties I’ve loved before

“Today let’s put a twist on that topic and focus on the good things diabetes has brought us.”

Really, what is there to say? The best thing is the friends.

So here’s to those folks I’ve known only because of diabetes.

Phatz, Fenney, Wolfer, Starr, Marie —- the old DHT crowd along with Eve, Buddy, Kara, oh and so many others from Wednesday night chat.

To Minnesota Nice, Scott, Nicole, Major Bedhead, and all the many bloggers from the DOC.

I knew it was a mistake starting to name names. There are far too many. Love you all!

Gene therapy shows promise for Parkinson’s | Reuters

In VICTORIES & SUCCESS STORIES on March 17, 2011 at 11:02 am

I’m glad to see other therapies are producing benefits to Parkinson’s patients.

There now seems to be 3 options for Parkinson’s patients:
Gene therapy = 23.1 % improvement
Placebo effect = 12.7 % improvement

Adult Stem Cells = 60 % improvement*

Red Pink and Blue Event in Cincinnati This Weekend

Are you ready to have some fun, treat yourself and help the diabetes cause?  Then plan on looking into the Red, Pink and Blue event.  Spa4Diabetes has teamed up with heart and breast cancer groups to organize a joint awareness event in the Greater Cincinnati area.

Red, Pink and Blue brings together health sessions, spa treatments, a fashion show and party, all in one event that spans 3 days.  It’s quite an intriguing concept that will benefit all three causes.

You can find out more about the event at Spa4Diabetes.  It runs June 25 – 27th.  This event also kicks off the 2009 World Diabetes Day Campaign.  To see a video, check out this out.

And, be sure to let me know if you attend.  I’m interested in hearing your view of this interesting awareness raising event.

Maine Town Becomes First in US to Declare Food Sovereignty | Sustainable Cities Collective

Town secedes from governmental food control!  They can now produce, sell, consume whatever they want!  No GM foods or raw food restrictions, etc.  This is a great step towards people taking control of what they can eat and therefor, their own health.

“This four page ordinance, which can be read in its entirety here , is revolutionary in that it relies on the consumer to educate themselves on the risk of consuming products (such as raw milks, cheeses, meats and vegetables), and shifts the power away from regulation, which prevents people from eating food of their choosing.”

The conspiracy minded will say: Let’s hope “evil forces” don’t  go in and start e-coli epidemics there to “prove” people can’t be in control of their own health without dire consequences!

Indeed! -dg
