Many of the medications prescribed are causing the epidemic of diabetes. Statin drugs cause an alarming amount of diabetes, memory loss, muscle atrophy and other profitable side effects. Mind drugs including anti depressants are causing severe diabetes IMO.

It can really be quite alarming about the diabetes increase. One has to really take care of ones health and be conscious of the food that one eats to avoid diabetes.
