If you ever needed a motivation to change your lifestyle, here’s one. The International Diabetes Federation is projecting that, by 2030, 1 in 10 adults on Earth will have the disease. This means that, 3 new cases of the disease will arise every 10 seconds.
You can probably guess why:
The vast majority of diabetics have Type 2 disease — the kind linked to poor diet, obesity and lack of exercise — and the problem is spreading as people in the developing world adopt more Western lifestyles.
It appears that we were not meant to live off burger, fries and sugary drinks.
