The Diabetes Epidemic
Diabetes is now reaching epidemic proportions. 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes, and 1 in 3 Americans are pre-diabetic.
Saudi Arabia is among the top 10 countries of the world with the highest prevalence of diabetes, affecting nearly 24% of the population.
This deadly problem is even beginning to affect our children. It’s estimated that 1/3 of all boys and 2/5 of all girls will develop diabetes in their lifetime. Take a look at these shocking statistics…
- In 1985, about 30 million people suffered from diabetes worldwide.
- In 2011, that number skyrocketed to 366 million people.
- And it’s projected that in the year 2030, diabetes will affect a staggering 552 million people! (source)
