Health experts say Indiana is in a “diabetes epidemic.” An estimated 650,000 Hoosiers have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. That’s about 12-percent of the state’s population.

Experts say the epidemic is not over how many people have the disease, but how expensive it has become to treat.

The CDC says diabetes is now the most expensive disease in the U.S. to manage, costing Americans together upwards of 377-billion a year.

The CDC numbers also show approximately 80,000 deaths occur each year due to diabetes.

What Indiana and the rest of the country has is an epidemic of unaccountable “experts” who refuse to understand how the world really works. With a hurricane of schizophrenic contraindications coming out of CDC, FDA, and the state health agencies why do they expect us to believe them again?
