Diabetes, with a touch of cinnamon

By Gerald W. Deas M.D., MPH

I have never been to a family gathering, church dinner, birthday party or dinner-dance where a high-calorie meal isn’t followed by a higher calorie sweeter-than-sweet dessert. This combination of foods and desserts seems to get folks up into an “Electric Slide” attitude, thinking that they will burn up some of those calories, but to no avail. It would be better if they at least deserted the dessert. When you think about it, that extra “s” in dessert is the extra sugar (glucose), which ultimately may cause diabetes.
