There was a scary article the other day about the rising prevalence of diabetes:
Diabetes may affect as many as 1 in 3 Americans by 2050
Really? A third of the population? That is INSANE. C'mon people — lay off the fast food and the soda, and get off the couch once in a while!
Of course, I know that not all type 2 diabetics (what the article is primarily talking about) are diabetic because of diet and lack of exercise. But those factors are responsible for many cases of type 2 diabetes, and certainly for much of the rise in diabetes. Our American lifestyle has got to change, and fast, if we don't want a third of our population to be diabetic in 40 years.
