A large number of people being diagnosed as a diabetic are overweight or obesest. Are so many diagnosis' of diabetes prescribed to assist the medicine companies to increase finance?
Brainstorming-Obesity, health eating, regular excersise, prevention
Clustering weight- are they obese? daily living , health diet? exercise -normal or none?

  1. Norma,I believe this to be an important topic for people to know about. Of the two techinques you speak of,brainstorming and clustering, which do you feel benefits your style the most? I have not tried either one of them but brainstorming is similar to freewriting but you just use short ideas and not sentences. I have tried freewriting and feel that it complicates things for me. Freewriting in a diary about my day is good because I let go of my day as I write about it. I do not want to let go of the ideas that I am trying to come up with for my paper so I decided to go with informal outline. It seems to put things in order for me.
