This morning my husband, Jordan and I were encouraged when we read an article in the Daily Herald Newspaper about new research to develop a vaccine therapy to for diabetes.
Later this morning, I received an email from our youngest son, Noah, who read about the research article in USA Today.
In the 1950’s when Jordan and I were children, Polio was a frightening epidemic. Thanks to Dr.Jonus Salk and his research, when our children were babies, they were vaccinated to prevent Polio.
According to the National Institute of Health there are approximately 23.6 million Americans who live with
type 2 diabetes, which represents 7.8 percent of the U.S. population and about 1/4 of them don’t even know it. There are another 57 million Americans have “pre-diabetes.” Diabetes is conservatively estimated to be the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S.
There are over 3 million American with type1 diabetes
Now, diabetes is a frightening and insidious epidemic!
It is encouraging to think that maybe Joshua, who has had type 1 diabetes for 24 years, will see a vaccination to prevent diabetes for his son, Ashton.
Wouldn’t that be GRAND!!
