The American Diabetes Association puts the number of diabetics in America at 20.8 million; with another 54 million having pre-diabetes, which places them at high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.
Worse, according to a new report from the National Institutes of Health, nearly half of American men today either have the disease, or are on the verge of developing it.
Since 1980, diabetic cases in the United States have sky-rocketed by an already alarming 47 percent, and this shocking trend is expected to go ballistic over the coming decade.
In fact, conventional medicine is describing diabetes as a pandemic that’s become out of control:
|“Doctors fear a huge wave of new diabetes cases could overwhelm the public health system and engulf growing numbers — and swamp hospitals. Its awful toll quietly emerges as a crisis. It’s frightening.” – New York Times|
|“…An epidemic that keeps on raging… What alarms public health experts the most is the speed at which diabetes has spread…”
– TIME magazine
|“73 million Americans have diabetes or are at risk… there’s a tremendous problem in this country with diabetes — it represents a genuine epidemic.”
– USA Today
And top medical researchers are sounding the alarm bells…
|“We’ve got to stop this. There has been a tremendous concern, but probably not enough concern about the emerging epidemic of diabetes.” – Dr. Robert Rizzo, Professor
|“The number of people with diabetes will reach 300 million — a staggering 122% increase.” – Life Extension Foundation|
|“Diabetes causes 35 million heart attacks, 13 million strokes, 2 million amputations and 62 million deaths. That’s the expected toll from diabetes… unless major action is taken to curb and control it… This will cost the U.S. economy $6.6 trillion dollars.” – American Diabetes Association|
|“4 out of 5 people with diabetes die of heart disease.” – Canadian Diabetes Association|
In fact, the situation is so serious, even some government officials are beginning to sit up and take notice…
|“Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions and it’s still on the rise.” – Tommy G. Thompson
Health and Human Services Secretary
U.S. Federal Government
Yet despite the undeniable diabetes epidemic already being reported by major media…
And despite the fact that top health researchers are frantically sounding the alarm…
And despite even government officials admitting there’s a massive problem…
And despite all the wake-up calls such as this one…
|“The diabetes epidemic will overwhelm health care resources everywhere if governments do not wake up and take action…” – New York Times|
…are you prepared to take that risk… and WAIT for the government to get their act together, to actually DO something about this crisis situation?!
We all know how sluggishly government funding programs trudge along — it would take years, or even longer, if one waits for them.
And when it comes to your health, I’m sure you’re not willing to wait that long…
