Skinny Gene Associated with Disease Risk

 http://www.skinnygeneproject.com/   and  http://skinnygeneproject.org/     The Skinny Gene Project is a diabetes prevention organization.


That was an interesting read in Reuters.  Also, this excerpt is interesting:


"Heart disease is the world's biggest killer, claiming 17.1 million lives a year, according to the World Health Organization. Experts say a global epidemic of obesity is threatening to cause a wave of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
A study published Saturday found that the number of adults around the world with diabetes has more than doubled since 1980 to 347 million -- a far larger number than previously thought."

Funny, I don't think so. I had one in my diabetes cookbook but I don't think I ever did a LC version. Hmm, something to keep in mind. Thanks for the reminder.
