November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. If you pay attention to the news at all you already know that type 2 Diabetes is a major problem in America and every year it seems like we break a record for obesity and overweight statistics.

In a recent study by WalletHub Texas was named the 10 Fattest State in America.

We don't report on this stuff just to share all the bad stuff going on in America, our heart is to shed light on our problems and maybe take steps to a brighter future.
