Food Is Medicine

It can help prevent disease and can also be the best medicine to manage chronic diseases such as diabetes. (Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which the body has high sugar levels for prolonged periods of time. This disease can be deadly if not treated or managed.) Even your emotional well-being is affected by your diet.
