    Anyway, still thinking if i should put the "prevention of obesity" a side, maybe can help me grow? >.<

  6. I heard a suggestion from a television programme. It promotes game which involve body movements. Such as dancing, Wii...and stuff like that. I think it's not a bad idea since most people now don't exercise much. Moving around while playing games should help prevent obesity. =)

  7. In regard of healthy food, does eating organic foods significantly help to prevent diabetes? :-)
