Today, one in five health care dollars is spent caring for people with diabetes

You realize that is a relatively meaningless phrase, right? There's a world of difference between saying "with diabetes" and "because of diabetes".

Women have a third more health care costs than men, because they live longer. Can we do something about that? :)
