developing dementia; WHO creates a tool to address the marketing
of 'bad' food to children; Listen

in previous issues on kit that was either in

including a consideration of using sweeteners instead of

quality grains and pulses, which will be advantageous to
your blood glucose control. And Tim Omer gives insights
as to how he travelled the globe with his blood test meter,
insulin pump and all that that entails and made it back to
tell us about how he did it. Thank you for sharing Tim!
