        Everybody's got a friend who's diabetic and so they tell you all about it.  They know more than you.  The amount of misinformation out there is very large.  This includes a large number of diabetics who have the damndest ideas about what "caused" their diabetes or who become "experts".   "My diabetes was caused by the soil of California (but they don't raise any of their own food).  

        Those who do various kinds of political organizing will recognize the sentence, "You know what you should do ...." by people who won't do their own advice themselves.   They tell you this stuff about their diabetic "friend" while sucking a Big Gulp and scarfing a pile of Cheetos and going back for seconds on cocktail weenies in tomato sauce.

      Everyone is different because their bodies have coped with whatever chemistry we've been adding for years. This movie released all my anxiety about food into the ether, and made me more aware about how food is a political tool, although poorly understood by the politicians (not much of a shock there I admit, but to see it is action in this movie is life confirming.)

      Watch it past the half way mark- it gets much better after the whole intro/ premise. You can stream it on Netflix, which has the older version- the new version he explains that he doesn't eat the bun anymore. You can eat all the BBQ you want!

      Grains in general are out of my life- which started years and years ago. I have never eaten quantities of HFCS. How DO you synthesize that? It can only be done in a lab. Soda pop has been gross for years because they switched to HFCS. Who would thinkingly walk around drinking corn?

        I was using them for the fiber, which did work, but the weight gain was not good.
