Diabetes skyrockets across America as Big Pharma drugs fail yet again

(NaturalNews) Despite steady increases in medication usage rates for preventing and treating the condition, Type II diabetes is more prevalent than ever throughout the U.S., according to a new study released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Between 1995 and 2010, the number of people diagnosed with diabetes in nearly half of all the U.S. states more than doubled, with the sharpest increases occurring throughout southern and Appalachian states.

Based on the figures, Oklahoma saw the largest increase in new diabetes cases, which jumped an astounding 226 percent throughout the 16-year period. Kentucky took second place with a 158 percent increase, followed by Georgia with a 145 percent increase, and Alabama with a 140 percent increase. Washington state and West Virginia were next, with 135 percent and 131 percent increases, respectively.

"Regionally, we saw the largest increase in diagnosed diabetes prevalence in the South, followed by the West, Midwest, and the Northeast," said Linda Geiss, a statistician with the CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation, and author of the study. Adding to this sentiment, Ann Albright, Director of Geiss' division at the CDC, stated that the epidemic will only continue to worsen until "effective interventions and policies are implemented to prevent both diabetes and obesity."

Overall, 42 states throughout the country witnessed at least a 50 percent increased rate of diabetes since 1995, while 18 states saw a 100 percent increase or more during the same period. Interestingly enough, such rapid increases occurred almost immediately after genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) were first unleashed without disclosure to the American public.

'Fattest' states also have most cases of diabetes

Percentage-wise, Mississippi was found to have the highest overall rate of diabetes at 12 percent, which is five percent higher than the national average of seven percent. Mississippi also happens to have the highest overall rate of obesity at 34.9 percent, which is not surprising since weight problems are a common side effect, or perhaps even a direct cause, of diabetes.

"The rise in diabetes has really gone hand in hand with the rise in obesity," added Geiss, further illustrating the fact that the corresponding rise in pharmaceutical drug usage during the same period has done absolutely nothing to curb either health epidemic. If anything, pharmaceutical drugs are directly contributing to both the diabetes and obesity epidemics, right along with GMOs, artificial sweeteners, refined sugars, and sedentary lifestyle.

You and your family do not have to become just another diabetes statistic, however. Some simple steps you can take to prevent and even reverse diabetes include cutting out all refined sugars, eating large amounts of nutrient-dense "superfoods," engaging in a regular exercise routine, taking vitamin D3 or exposing your skin to natural sunlight regularly, and avoiding chemical-laden processed foods.
