Halloween AND hello Health
Updated: Mar 25, 2021
Ready for a scare?
Halloween began as a Celtic festival that marked the start of winter, often associated with death. Today, a few of the leading causes of death in the U.S. include heart disease, stroke and diabetes. 1 out of every 10 people in the U.S. have diabetes and THE NUMBER OF DIAGNOSED CHILDREN IS GROWING (CDC report). Blood vessels are damaged by high blood sugar levels which means people navigating diabetes are also at risk for stroke. This hits close to home because folks in my family are navigating these issues. Chances are, you also can speak from personal experience or know someone who can. Now THAT’S SCARY.
