40 Percent of Americans Will Develop Diabetes
A spoonful of sugar isn’t going to help: Nearly half of Americans will develop Type-2 diabetes, according to a new study. Longer lifespans and the obesity crisis are putting more and more at risk, with 40 percent of Americans — and 50 percent of Hispanics and non-Hispanic black women — likely to develop the disease. Genetic misfortune also plays a role, but the spike is primarily attributed to “diabesity.” The best medicine? To drop the candy bar and keep walking.
