Water Rights and Diabetes

Posted Sep 22 2008 11:05am

The New York Times reports that Native American Indians in Arizona have negotiated an agreement that will begin to reverse the loss of water rights which in turn destroyed their ability to farm and provide their families with healthy food.  The US Government then provided processed foods, lard, white flour which in combination with the genetic makeup has contributed to obesity, type 2 diabetes and alcoholism.  Wow.  I hope you’ll take time to read the article “ Indians’ Water Rights Give Hope for Better Health”.  If healthy whole foods are good for them, how about us?
