DIABETES ON THE RISE
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 33.9% of adults are now prediabetic. With 30.3 million (9.4% of the US population) people already diagnosed with diabetes, this means 115 million Americans now have some stage of the chronic disease. These numbers are increased from 81 million in 2008. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the US. The CDC predicts that if this trend continues, 1 in 3 Americans will have diabetes by the year 2050.
