It's still not certain that smoking CAUSES type 2 diabetes (that's why they say "may" in the story), but it's been established that there is an association between smoking and type 2 diabetes.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18073361

"Active smoking and the risk of type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis."

"Results were consistent and statistically significant in all subgroups. The risk of diabetes was greater for heavy smokers (> or =20 cigarettes/day; RR, 1.61; 95% CI, 1.43-1.80) than for lighter smokers (RR,1.29; 95% CI, 1.13-1.48) and lower for former smokers (RR, 1.23; 95% CI, 1.14-1.33) compared with active smokers, consistent with a dose-response phenomenon."

KHartman, why did you even bother posting that? They're just going to call it out as a study paid for by the RWJF and big pharma.

Drop the spiel, KHartman! Screw the smokers!

It has nothing to do with any of this, that's why I led with the statement, "Off topic"..

I was just curious..

Ain't over till the fat lady sings.

New Albany Mayor Doug England said yesterday that he hasn't decided whether to veto an ordinance prohibiting smoking in enclosed public areas that the City Council narrowly approved Thursday night.

But England made it clear that he has not ruled out a veto.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
