Diabetes is 21st Century Health Crisis

Diabetes is being described as a health crisis for the 21st century and could decrease life expectancy by 200 years.
Some diseases are avoidable. However the World Health Organisation states that the deaths of tens of thousands of people is inevitable, as obesity rises and people do not have enough exercise.
The UK alone has nearly two million diabetics. Once diagnosed with diabetes, each diabetic’s life is decreased by 10 years. There are also at risk of blindness and leg amputation.
Professor Sir George Alberti, the last president of the International Diabetes Federation and Britain’s leading expert on the disease, stated: “The explosion of diabetes is with us and we will see a great increase in heart disease and strokes. It is a catastrophe waiting to happen. Much stronger government action is needed.
“This is one of the biggest health catastrophes the world has seen. The financial and social burden of the disease will be intolerable if governments do not wake up and take notice now.”
Diabetes impacts upon 150 million people globally and causes five million deaths a year.
