Remember when your mother used to tell you to eat your vegetables?  Now you are all grown up and your mom is no longer at your side to remind you to take in your daily dosage of vegetation.


What do you do now?

No, you don’t expect your significant other or anyone else to manage your eating habits!  It is time you take charge of your lifestyle, but for an extra push, here is a nifty new service that’s available through your cellphone, Txt4health.  The Txt4health campaign was created to raise awareness about the growing rate of Type 2 Diabetes across America.

Here is how it works.  You simply text “HEALTH” to 300400 and from that point forward, the next 14 weeks you will receive text messages providing resources and facts to living a healthier life.  You will even come face-to-face with your own assessment of Type 2 Diabetes risk.  Some say, “What they don’t know won’t hurt them,” but this is not one of those times.  Take action and join the many Americans today who are ready to make a change.
