Blog note: Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in America. In 1950, there were 1.7 million diabetics in the USA. In 2010, there were over 25.8 million diabetics. The total US population was 152 million in 1950 and 309 million in 2010. That means our diabetes rate is growing almost eight times faster than our population.
