One thought on “The Incredible Rise of Diabetes in the United States”
Truly shocking, especially the rates for young children and adolescents that are on the rise! I’m doing a presentation on Diabetes in class tomorrow and 1 particular article about 1,400 4th graders in Texas was very disturbing. Many kids aren’t even given a fighting chance! Poverty, lack of access to healthy foods, no P.E. requirements, high crime neighborhoods, and easy access to fast, cheap food are all against many out there. Thanks for posting this!
