Run TippyRun : A Diabetes Campaign For Our Youth
Last year, I had a brief scare with Type-1 diabetes. Afterwards, I conducted extensive research about the rise of the disease amongst our youth. Multiple diabetic studies clearly indicate a direct relationship between the rise in juvenile (type 1 diabetes), High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS – a chemical added to extend the shelf life of food.) and hormone-injected cow’s milk.
I am an Instructional Designer/Flash Programmer by profession. To help combat the fat food culture being pushed onto our young children, I created the first series of a children books called Run Tippy Run – Draw Me Healthy. This series of children books, will attempt to introduce a green diet concept to young children.
By quick action and following a 50% vegetable, all organic diet, I have avoided the type 1 prognosis al together.
