Diabetes "Epidemic" In Scotland?

Maybe, theyshould have passed the tax on chocolate consumption?

New data shows 4.3% of the population in Scotland is now diabetic (that's 220,000 persons). There are about 28 new cases per day in this country with a population of approximately 5 million.

In the past 12 months, the number of people diagnosed with the condition has risen by 10,000, according to data revealed at the Edinburgh International Science Festival yesterday.

Most of the increase is due to the soaring rate of type 2 diabetes, which mostly
affects the middle-aged. It is strongly linked to lifestyle factors such as being overweight or obese, being sedentary and having a poor diet.

Care of diabetes, now costing about £1 billion a year in Scotland, accounts for about 10% of the health budget.
