Rise in Type 2 Diabetes in the UK
Public Health England recently published an analysis of the predicted number of people who could develop diabetes in the near future. The organization concluded “that one in 10 adults in the UK will be at risk of developing diabetes by 2035” and that “the number of people with the disease could top five million if obesity rates continue to increase.” 90 percent of the diabetic population was found to be type 2 diabetic. The study also revealed that if current obesity rates in the UK remain constant, the increase in type 2 diabetes by 2035 could be even greater. If this occurs, the National Health Service (NHS) of England could go bankrupt.
