Diabetes

I reccomend all quench readers read the article linked to above.

One in three children born in the United States five years ago are expected to become diabetic in their lifetimes, according to a projection by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The forecast is even bleaker for Latinos: one in every two.

The article linked has a pretty good description of distributions among various groups within NYC.

It's also 8 screens long! Wow!
