<< Diabetes Cure May Cost Drug Companies Billions
 By Matthew Herper
 Of the estimated 10 million people in the U.S. who suffer from diabetes,
 about 5% to 10% of them are dependent on daily shots of insulin to keep
 their blood sugar levels from becoming dangerously high. >>

Who is Matthew Herper and what paper was this in? Many more people than the 
5-10 percent mentioned in the lede graf take insulin. That percentage only 
covers the type 1s: It's estimated that up to 40 percent of type 2s also use 
insulin. This list even has several type 2 pumpers.
