About Diabetes(:

There are 3 types of diabetes called type 1, type 2 and the pregnancy one but today we’re only going to talk about type 1 and type 2.  Diabetes is a diagnosed when a person has too much glucose in the blood. It happens because the pancreas can’t make enough insulin. Glucose is previously stored in the liver.

The main similarities between type 1 and type 2 diabetes are that if you have either diseases, they both cause higher levels. I think they can both cause serious problems like a heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and nerve damage. I will just say this but they're obviously diabetes.

The difference between both diseases are that if you have type 1 diabetes you have for the rest of your life and have to cope with it. You have to take at least 4 injections a day. Now moving on to type 2. The pancreas gets more sluggish over time and you have to take medications recently or you will die.

Diabetics manage their illness by getting daily physical activity, eating a healthy diet and taking your medication. Looking after your body and keeping it healthy is probably the answer.

If you have a poor diet, if you’re overweight or a lack of exercise meaning like you’re lazy then you will probably get type 2 diabetes. Now family history. If like your grandparents or parents have diabetes when they were born you could have a better chance of getting type 2.

The main health risks are Heart attack, blindness, strokes, kidney failure and poor circulation. Poor circulation means that limbs can die.

The Heart Attack Grill

Room 15 at Pt England school think that The Heart Attack Grill should not be allowed to operate in Glen Innes, NZ.

The food at this restaurant is unhealthy and filled with fat. The fries are deep fried in lard, which is animal fat and is known to be less healthy than vegetable fat. The Heart Attack Grill offers burgers that are 4 patties high and filled with cheese and grease.

The owner of The Heart Attack Grill uses his customers for promotion. Super morbidly obese people eat there for free. The spokes model for The Heart Attack Grill, passed away from obesity reality illness and within a week they had hired a new spokesperson.

The restaurant owner is promoting obesity through his food and lifestyle.The Heart Attack Grill offers unlimited fries, fat and sugar laden drinks as well as giant sized burgers. The environment, waitress and costuming makes the restaurant to look like a hospital, warning signs caution the customers on how unhealthy there food is.

The counter argument could be that the owner of The Heart Attack Grill believes he is selling a positive message. By shocking customers and the people of the USA, they will stop eating unhealthy foods. However, he continues to sell the food, kill people and make money. Is this truly a positive message or one of a murder.

When you weigh up all the evidence, you can conclude that The Heart Attack Grill owner should be held accountable and that his restaurant should not be allowed to operate in Glen Innes, or in any country around the world.

Today Pt England kapa haka group & my group senior hip hop performed our fiafia dance to, yes I did say “!” Miss King our lovely teacher ask us to write about three paragraphs about’s new song That Power so here it goes.

I’m thinking that its about him wanting to be strong like the lyrics “Whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger So I'ma get stronger!” And wanting to get better at things as it says in his song “One day I'll be that number 1!” So growing up strong & wanting to do better.
