One of Every Three Born in 2000 Will Develop Diabetes

"No diabetes in my future!"

The U.S. already has 24 million people with diabetes and another 54 million with prediabetes.  Approximately one of every three persons born in the U.S. in 2000 will develop diabetes in his or her lifetime, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Incredible.

And largely preventable if we have the will.
