Study Shows Diabetes Surging Worldwide | Health | English
Study Shows Diabetes Surging Worldwide | Health | English: "The number of adults worldwide with diabetes has more than doubled in the past three decades - jumping to nearly 350 million. And it continues to surge, according to a new study in the journal Lancet. Researchers say much of this dramatic increase - in Pacific island countries, North America and some of the Gulf states - is due to aging populations and rapid population growth. But part of it has also been driven by rising obesity rates, especially among young people."
