Subject: [IP] Weight watchers article on DM--Vent

Hi Everyone,

In the Nov/Dec 2003 issue of weight watchers magazine there is an article on
Diabetes.  A quote from the article "The good news is diabetes is
I did some research for graduate school and found that the CDC did a very 
large study that showed that Type 2 diabetes is preventable. The study showed 
 that if people lost just 5% of their weight and did moderate physical exercise,
the number of people later diagnosed with Type 2 dropped by 56%!!!! This study 
was not done nor did it show that once you had Type 2, it could be cured, but 
rather that it could be prevented in some people. There are also numerous 
studies that show the numbers of children being diagnosed with Type 2 has 
 increased due to the increasing obesity factor. As a lifelong Type 1, what I
give to have been able to prevent this horrible disease! For some people, with 
Type 2 it would have been possible.
