Children in Danger of Becoming Diabetic

A wake-up call to parents from the CDC. One in three children today are on the road to Diabetes unless families shape up and make some lifestyle changes.

Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says one out of every three children born in the U.S. today will develop the disease, even though the risk is greatly reduced by exercise and a healthy diet.

Already, about 17 million Americans have Diabetes, a number that has tripled since the 1960's. Diabetes is an illness that threatens the eyes, kidneys, and heart.
