Until recently, young children and teens almost never got type 2 diabetes, which is why it used to be called adult-onset diabetes. Now, about one-third of American youth are overweight, a problem closely related to the increase in kids with type 2 diabetes, some as young as 10 years old. Weight...
Rain, rain go away! It has to quit because the fifth annual carnival is coming on the 24th of August. What a fun time for all the residents.
