Har, har. But on a more serious note, the number one way to reduce the effects of diabetes, is exercise. To call the decision "contrary to evidence as presented in the international scientific literature" is way too kind. It's barbaric and will consign many diabetics to death and complications earlier than they would have suffered, otherwise.

Doesn't matter if it's barbaric or not.
If people want universal healthcare, they better be willing to either accept what they are provided, or else they need to go out and stump for new candidates who will get rid of Socialized medicine.

I'll get my revenge. They figure that 1/3 American adults will be diagnosed with diabetes, nowadays. That number will probably only go up.

Oh, and the Greek word anglicizes to "All age". Go figure.
