Fun Fact Friday!

Fun Fact Friday!

I don't think that Grandma really liked getting
a shot everyday but I am thankful for all the
cattle pancreases that kept her alive for many

Today's post is a little personal and I am proud to share it with you all.  

Fun, fact, Friday has been one of the highlights of my week.  I think all week about a fun fact to share with all my readers.  I hope that you are enjoying them as much as I do writing them.

Today is about insulin. Insulin is given to diabetic people.

My Grandmother was a diabetic. I remember her poking her fingers and giving herself a shot.  I always felt pretty bad for her because I didn't quite understand about diabetes.  Today I have a better understanding.

My fact is that it takes 26 pancreases from cattle to provide enough insulin for 1 diabetic person to live for a year.  

Do you know anyone that is on insulin?

I sure do!

I don't know about you, but I sure am thankful for all the pancreases that are used to help keep our family, friends and neighbors alive everyday. 

Happy Friday!  Have a good weekend.
