Sugar Fix - Diabetes

The Sharing Circle focuses on the new social phenomenon that has created this ethno-cultural epidemic. Native people have the highest rate of diabetes of any other demographic in Canada. A detailed examination reveals Aboriginal children in the northern reserves to be the most common victims. Lack of resources, poverty, and even cultural identity all correlate to the disease.
