Highest rate in the South, according to government reportATLANTA - The nation's obesity epidemic is exacting a heavy toll: The rate of new diabetes cases nearly doubled in the United States in the past 10 years, the government said Thursday.The highest rates were in the South, according to the first state-by-state review of new diagnoses. The worst was in West Virginia, where about 13 in 1,000 adults were diagnosed with the disease in 2005-07. The lowest was in Minnesota, where the rate was 5 in 1,000.Nationally, the rate of new cases climbed from about 5 per 1,000 in the mid-1990s to 9 per 1,000 in the middle of this decade.Roughly 90 percent of cases are Type 2 diabetes, the form linked to obesity.The findings dovetail with trends seen in obesity and lack of exercise — two health measures where Southern states also rank at the bottom.
Please don't pull out the faith-as-science card on me. If you are gun virgins, admit it. Your entire body of knowledge comes from the news and statistics.
I don't know, Goodkat. If you give your body too much sulfuric acid, it responds by not being able to handle sulfuric acid correctly, too.
