New Diabetes Cases Dropping for First Time

Over the past 7 years, the number of new diabetes cases reported has dropped, and by a substantial number.

According to the NYTimes, “The rate of new cases fell by about a fifth from 2008 to 2014, according to researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the first sustained decline since the disease started to explode in this country about 25 years ago.”

Researchers are not sure if the drop is because of efforts at prevention, or if the disease reached a peak and is now declining.


We need scientists to research marijuana - but they can't because the DEA calls it a Schedule I drug. Join us in asking the DEA to name it a Schedule II drug so research can begin. Sign the petition | Learn more
