BlueStar, a new digital product that recently earned FDA clearance, will soon offer adults with type 2 diabetes access to an extra team of health care professionals – available at their fingertips, it was announced July 6th 2013. This is the first diabetes-based app available by prescription, and makes suggestions to users for their diabetes care based on inputted data about an individual’s medications, blood sugar readings, diet and exercise. Chris Bergstrom, chief strategy and commercial officer at WellDoc, commented, “Over the coming months, we will increase access to BlueStar, so adults living with type 2 diabetes can have the anywhere, anytime diabetes support they need.” (

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine investigated how the modern diet has led to an increase in obesity and type 2 diabetes. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “Around 188,000 years ago our species left Neanderthal man behind to become Homo Sapien. Since that time our genetic make up has changed by only half of 1%. For 187,900 of the years since then, our diet was essentially the same. However, in just the last 100 years the food that we eat has changed beyond all recognition and when you plot this change against the human evolutionary timeline and the explosion of obesity and diabetes it becomes glaringly obvious where the problem lies.” (

Yourwellness Magazine explained that the more food is processed and artificially changed, the further away from the original raw ingredients it becomes, the less nourishing it is and the more alien it becomes to the human body. Yourwellness Magazine noted that society requires a fresh perspective on the manufacturing industry, and challenge the process in which goodness in food is reduced while profits for the manufacturers skyrocket. Yourwellness Magazine outlined three ways in which readers can eat more of what the body is designed to eat:

1. Do the vast majority of shopping in the produce and butchery aisles.
2. Eat natural sugars and fats.
3. Save other sections of the supermarket for occasional treats.
