Google contact lens could be option for diabetics By Martha Mendoza of Associated Press

Google is working on a smart contact lens prototype that monitors glucose levels in tears. The technology could end finger pricks for diabetics. It still needs to be tested and proved accurate and safe to win FDA approval. Karen's expert opinion was sought and quoted in the last two paragraphs:

"Karen Rose Tank, who left her career as an economist to be a health and wellness coach after her Type 1 diabetes diagnosis 18 years ago, also is encouraged that new glucose monitoring methods may be on the horizon.

"It's really exciting that some of the big tech companies are getting into this market," she said. "They bring so much ingenuity; they're able to look outside the box." January 16, 2014

Enjoy the coverage of A Taste of Suppers at the Princeton Public Library where over 120 people listened to the healing stories of Suppers members from The Programs new book, Logical Miracles, and sampled a wide variety of delicious foods from chilis, to slaws and kale salads, to green and fruit smoothies, to tastey whole food-based treats. Nirit Yarden writing for PrincetonEats.com captured the "taste" and "feel" of the standing-room-only event... including a few quotes by and pictures of Karen.

Logical Miracles: Stories of Hope and Healing from The Suppers Programs edited by Dor Mullen.
As a Co-founder of Suppers for Stable Blood Sugar, read the story of my relationship to food, my struggle with weight, and my subsequent diagnosis with type 1 diabetes... up close and very, very personal. What follows is my journey to health while discovering The Suppers Programs and learning to feed myself in order to stabilize my blood sugar without dieting or deprivation. Along the way came healing from the pain and struggle of living with a chronic disease. There are also stories of introducing healthy foods to my family, their resistance... and ultimate acceptance and embracing! Coupled with all the stories (over 100) are the recipes that helped participants manage their food struggles and cravings and moved them towards the healthier life they seek.
