When most people hear the word “diabetes” they think of insulin shots and diet when unfortunately it's not that simple. Diabetes Type 1 and 2 have reached pandemic levels with the fastest growing being adult-onset or Type 2 occurring in children. With no single cause sited the search for a cure seems impossible. Investigative journalist and diabetic himself, Dan Hurley leaves no stone unturned in his search for answers. Diabetes Rising is a must-read, whether you yourself are diabetic or you know someone that is. —Michele
