One in three people in the U.S. will have type 2 diabetes by 2050. That’s the grim prediction from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). One in three. Think about it for a minute. This is serious, people. Why such a disturbing fate? Obesity rates are out of control. Still.

The CDC warns unless something is done to change America’s unhealthy lifestyle trends, this is where we’re heading. Is this really where we want to go?

Type 2 diabetes can be reversed with lifestyle changes – eating healthy and getting regular exercise can help immensely. Wouldn’t you rather choose these things over a serious illness?

Wake up America. We can’t let this happen.
