23% have diabetes or pre-diabetes. They're not the same thing.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with GM foods or hormone injected meats.
Everyone is just eating too much food and being lazy.

Now please go about your business.

Or just food that is bad for you in general.

But yes lazy + eating crap = obesity. And it's a vicious cycle since eating crap makes you lazy, and being lazy makes you more lazy.

it seems to be more than eating too much. The incidence of diabetes is increasing faster than the obesity rate.

The survey this article is based on has been criticized for having poor sampling. It vastly over-represents minorities and lower socioeconomic strata, where obesity and diabetes are far more common.

IMHO, the problem is not only one of simple increased input/decreased output. Simple sugars now make up a much larger portion of the collective American diet. They are are much more apt to induce central adiposity, belly fat, which, in turn promotes the insulin resistance found in Type II diabetes. Sugary sweet drinks bear a huge part of the blame, but there are also hidden sugars in other products. That and Americans are lazy slobs with no self control who sit and Fark all day.

Sigh..

The problem is that eating is seen as an activity you do while you're lounging or whatever instead of a way of nourishing your body. Working out for just 45 minutes a day and eating reasonably well goes a long way towards a healthy body and mind.

RexTalionis: 23% have diabetes or pre-diabetes. They're not the same thing.


Also, they didn't split out Type I (juvenile onset, insulin dependent) and Type II (adult onset, med controlled), which is kind of important in determining if it's because these brats are all lazy fatties or if there's an increase in pancreatic disease which is a problem that is harder to take care of.

Every once in a while.

I saw some teenagers walking through the neighborhood the other day and they were all looking down at their phones. At least they were walking I guess.

Saw two girls the other night, the skinny girl on a bike and the fat girl was on a motorized 4-wheeler. I couldn't help but laugh. Sort of felt bad, but sheesh.
 
2012-05-22 03:22:44 PM
The study found a steady rise since 1999, but didn't break down the diabetes data-between Type 1 and Type 2, say, or degrees of severity.

So if this was a school paper, they'd get a C.

(or a D. For Diabetes.)

Snerk. In reality, I do think all the hidden corn syrup in stuff has got to be a contributing factor. I'm trying really hard to eliminate most sugars (other than fruit) from my diet and it basically means eating nothing from a can or a box. I'd love to see a breakdown of the ingredients by volume of a can of tomato sauce from the 50's/60's/70's vs. today. I have a feeling you'd see sugar rising steadily as an ingredient.

They can't really do it around here. Gets up to, like, 110 degrees during the summer, and summer is from, like, a few weeks ago until after October.

When I was a kid, it wasn't that bad, and we could go out and play. Plus, all the Nintendo games were actually pretty short once you got good at them, so you couldn't spend all day playing what you'd already beaten.

Same went for when I got to be about 12 and started beating other things. That was easier to beat over and over again, but eventually that got tiring, too, and you still had to go outside.

Sunday?

I mean, it's been raining for the last couple of days.

In my neighborhood, there are hella kids out playing in the front yards/street/field pretty much every day after school. I don't think I've seen an obese kid yet - a few of the adults are gentlemen of gravity, but the kids seem to be in decent enough shape.

Obviously, I'm not seeing the fat kids because the fat kids aren't out playing in the street/yard/fields/etc. But still, there are lots of kids out, so I'm not sure how many more are housebound.

every jerk off on here that says this is the kids/parents fault do your farking research. Type1 diabetes (which is what almost every teen gets, thus why its called "juvenile diabetes") isn't caused by over eating of being fat or your diet at all. your pancreas just stops working all together. when i was diagnosed at 14 that was one of the first things they told me. this is why the author made a point of saying that the study didn't say how many of the kids had which type. also that percentage seems off. i graduated in 08 my school had 6or7 diabetics out of about 700 students, which is like 10% maybe less. i cant see the number ballooning 15% in just 4 years

i weighed 105lbs and was 5'6" plus i was playing sports in every season of the year when i was diagnosed.

In the drugstore, next to the condoms, lube, and ovulation kits, they are starting to sell bags of flour. Maybe these two things are related.

doesn't it seem reasonable to assume that the % of kids with type-1 diabetes would be fairly constant over the decade so the majority of the huge increase could be attributed to type-2?

Actually, they've stopped calling them juvenile and adult diabetes specifically because type 2 is being diagnosed so much more commonly in adolescents than in the past.

its a test to predict type 2 diabetes before it technically happens, and yes it was defined, but i don't think all doctors believe in its accuracy. I know one of my dad's friend was told he was pre-diabetic, but thought the test was wrong. he never changed his diet or anything and it turned out the test was wrong about him as his sugar never went high

Gee, thanks. I just read the ingredients on the box my lunch just came in. Didn't see any fructose, sucrose or glucose or sugar listed. There is "corn syrup solids" whatever that is.

Now the amount of sodium in it is quite appalling though

I call shenanigans. From the time I was in 7th grade until I graduated, I ate crap out of the vending machines for my lunch because the cafeteria food was rank. Twinkies, KitKat, chips and a Dr.Pepper. But then, that was before corn syrup was overused in every food product out there. When it comes to diabetes, I'm siding with the opinion that corn syrup is a major contributing factor. I've been watching Supernatural and the story arc the villain is trying to turn the US (and then the world) into a giant food trough for his species by putting grey slime corn syrup additives into the food supply that turns everyone into compliant sheeple.

Not necessarily. Type 1 kids can be very medically "fragile" and used to die very young (hence the name "juvenile" diabetes); more modern improvements in insulin pumps, monitoring of diets, and better healthcare overall means that kids who might have died before they hit high school are surviving. I don't know how things are or were; but it's entirely possible that more surviving diabetic kids is the cause of the jump. Which is why it would be nice to know the breakout of type 1 and type 2 in their study.

I'll believe my doctors who specialize in it over your google "research". while it is "more common" for kids to get type 2, its still a vast majority that have type 1.
