We Studied One Million Students. This Is What We Learned About Masking.

RETURNING TO SCHOOL THIS FALL, CHILDREN SHOULD BE VACCINATED IF ELIGIBLE, WEAR MASKS OR PREPARE TO RISK GETTING COVID. Big questions loom over the upcoming back-to-school season: Should children be required to wear masks? Should children go to in-person classes at all? If we send children to school without masks, we increase their risk of acquiring Covid-19. Some could suffer illness or die.

If you are diabetic and noticing your blood sugar has been spiking more often during these stressful times, or will be getting vaccinated soon, try to find some mature moringa seeds. The mature seeds work better for reducing blood sugar than the younger ones or other parts of the plant in an emergency situation (250+). I take these myself, and know others who do successfully.
