Everyone has a sweet tooth. And everyone likes to nurture this. No matter how dangerous it could be for others. That’s the reason why diabetes is one of the world’s biggest killers nowadays. Sorry to burst your bubble; but don’t worry, to fend off diabetes, all you need to do is to take the sweets in moderation, exercise and take time to breathe. By that, we also mean visiting must-see places and indulge a little one time or another.
