Glaxo's Avandia Scores FDA Victory
SILVER SPRING, Md.—A government panel called for easing restrictions on the onetime big-selling diabetes drug Avandia, in a remarkable about-face nearly three years after concerns over heart risk led regulators to curtail use of the drug.
The vote was a victory for Avandia maker GlaxoSmithKline GSK.LN -1.47% PLC, which has maintained that the drug was safe. Glaxo asked Duke University to review a study that the company said showed no increase in heart attacks for Avandia patients, and Duke largely confirmed the company's view.
At a two-day meeting of a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel, FDA officials strongly endorsed the Duke readjudication as credible and professionally conducted.
For what it's worth... Not all diabetes is from poor lifestyle. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune condition. Secondary diabetes happens when a pharmaceutical inadvertently destroys the insulin-producing islet cells, or the pancreas has to be removed due to trauma or cancer.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90%–95% of diabetes cases and is usually associated with older age, obesity and physical inactivity, family history of type 2 diabetes, or a personal history of gestational diabetes. Diabetes rates vary by race and ethnicity, with American Indian, Alaska Native, African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Asian/Pacific Islander adults about twice as likely as white adults to have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented through healthy food choices, physical activity, and weight loss. It can be controlled with these same activities, but insulin or oral medication also may be necessary
Diabetes Is Common, Disabling, and Deadly
25.8 million people in the United States (8.3% of the population) have diabetes. Of these, 7.0 million have undiagnosed diabetes.
In 2010, about 1.9 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people aged 20 years or older.
If current trends continue, 1 of 3 U.S. adults will have diabetes by 2050.
Among adults, diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness, kidney failure, and amputations of feet and legs not related to accidents or injury.
Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates in 2007.
A person with diabetes has a shorter life expectancy and about twice the risk of dying on any given day
as a person of similar age without diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90%–95% of diabetes cases

I personally think even things like the rise in gluten intolerance etc. , is maybe more a case of the body knowing what it wants rather than it being a defect.
Big problem world wide , im not picking on the US , were just as bad
An extreme example of this - one that's quite unfortunate - is the plight of south west Native Americans. We get folks applying for jobs who have for instance worked on the Arizona Native American Nations. I ask them about prevalent conditions they see. Now and then someone is too politically correct and won't tell it like it is. I know Jimmy Malone would be blunt, being a warrior chief in the Mic Mac Indian Nation. A problem unique to southwest Native Americans is their heritage of living for thousands of years amongst periods of feast and famine. Nature has selected for people who can store calories efficiently. Now put someone like that on The KFC Diet and you have instant morbid obesity.
He shows what the longer-living people eat - basically fish, sweet potatoes, any part of the pig they can, and green vegetables that they grow themselves. They are some of the longest-living on the planet. Meanwhile their kids now love the KFC and McDonald's diets. They love burgers and they love grease. They hate the bitter vegetables that their elders eat. They are growing bigger, and they are living shorter lives.

I doubt most people reading this have never gone a week without refined sugar in there diet (unless medically necessary) in there entire lives , if they did they would recognise its pretty much an addiction, and they'll be substituting for that hit almost immediately.

The smart scientist won't tell you this, because they will lose their jobs if they did!
