Take time to venture out to the 'farmers markets'
for fesh fruits & veggie's......Try different grocery stores until you find what is fresh and healthy good.

Most A/A don't know how to put pressure on their local policticians to get what's needed in the neighborhoods; you can practically sell anything in a black neighborhood, even bad meat.

Sometimes truck loads of food rejected from other areas are brought to black neighborhoods to be sold at high premium prices; I wish the 'KEEPIN IT REAL" FOLKS would stop this from happening.

My fathers doctor did not diagnose his kidney tumor until it was 6 pounds. His ankles were swollen and he coughed continuously. She placed him on lasoks and other drugs but his ankles were still swollen. He went to her complaining of back pain and that is when she ordered different scans and found his huge kidney tumor.
