Current research shows that half of all American adults are now at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

A new study from Canada examined the 15-year medical records of 379,003 people with diabetes and more than 9,018,082 people without the disease. Women with diabetes entered a high-risk category for suffering a heart attack at an average age of 54—almost 15 years earlier than they would have due to normal aging.
