Why must this happen, when there is a way to prevent it and reverse it.

For years doctors have warned of a rising epidemic of diabetes among children. Yet there has been surprisingly little firm data on the extent of this disease among younger Americans.

“Diabetes in pregnancy is a risk factor for diabetes in the next generation,” Dr. Dabelea said.

Diabetes is increasing among U.S. children at an alarming rate, say researchers who report jumps of more than 20 percent since 2001 for type 2 disease, which is linked to excessive weight and sedentary lifestyles, and type 1 diabetes, which is an autoimmune disease.

“Both types of diabetes are increasing,” said study co-author Dr. Dana Dabelea, associate dean for faculty affairs at the
University of Colorado School of Public Health in Aurora. “For type 2, we have some clues as to why it’s increasing, but for type 1, we still need to better understand the triggers of this disease.”

Many of the type 2 diagnoses are explained by the rise in overweight and obese children. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 17 percent of U.S. children and teens are obese — three times the number of a generation ago.

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly turns on healthy cells responsible for producing insulin, a hormone needed to metabolize the carbohydrates in food. It’s been suggested that exposure to certain viruses may trigger the onset of type 1 diabetes. It is not linked to lifestyle factors, such as being overweight.

The exact cause of type 2 diabetes is less clear. People with type 2 either don’t produce enough insulin, or their bodies don’t use insulin efficiently. The disease is linked to sedentary lifestyles and to being overweight. However, other factors may be responsible, too. The disease can often be controlled in its early stages with lifestyle changes that include losing weight and becoming more active.

The first study found that about 189,000 people under the age of 20 had diabetes in the United States. Of those, 168,000 had type 1, and more than 19,000 had type 2.

From 2001 to 2009, the number of American children with type 2 diabetes increased 21 percent, and cases of type 1 ballooned 23 percent, the researchers found.

The study also found that children with type 2 were more likely to have protein in their urine than children with type 1 diabetes, suggesting that they might be at greater risk for early kidney damage. Youngsters with both types of diabetes also showed early indications of damage to the nerve system that regulates the heart and its blood vessels, according to the study.

The researchers also found that children with diabetes who watched more than three hours of television daily had poorer blood sugar control and higher levels of triglycerides, a blood fat, than children who watched less TV.

Dabelea and her colleagues were scheduled to present their findings on Saturday at the American Diabetes Association annual meeting in Philadelphia. The study was funded by the CDC and the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

In another presentation planned for the meeting, researchers who are also from the University of Colorado studied children with type 2 diabetes and found the disease may progress more rapidly in young people than in older folks. With an average follow-up of just four years, this study found that about one-third of children with type 2 diabetes had high blood pressure, compared to 12 percent at the start of the study. Almost 17 percent showed early signs of kidney damage, and 13 percent had early signs of eye disease.

“Type 2 is not a benign condition in children,” said Dabelea.

Dr. Joel Zonszein, director of the clinical diabetes center at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, said he wasn’t surprised by either study’s findings on type 2 diabetes.

“We’re seeing more children with type 2, and at younger ages.

They often have more aggressive disease at the time of diagnosis and other conditions, such as [abnormal cholesterol levels],” he said. “I’m concerned because these are young people being diagnosed with an adult disease, and they will probably progress to cardiovascular disease much faster.”

Zonszein was surprised at the dramatic rise in the rates of type 1 diabetes. “I don’t know what would cause more autoimmune disease in type 1,” he said.

The root of all diseases is your body being in an acidic environment. To be healthy you must be in an alkaline environment.


Look at the American diet that most these kids are drinking and eating. Sodas, sports drinks, bottle water fast foods, processed foods. How in the world is your body supposed to be alkaline if all you are drinking and eating is acidic, remember diseases grow in an acidic environment.

Is your child drinking alkaline water (kangen water), is she or he eating alkaline foods like fresh fruits and vegetables pesticide free, is your child’s plate ¾ full with veggies, most likely not.

Because of how busy most parents are, it is much easier to go to a fast food restaurant. Most American families are doing this, it is sad because the kids are paying for it by being unhealthy and getting some type of degenerative disease at such an early age.

You have to have a starting point so why not start by changing the type of water they are drinking, water is the essence of life so wouldn’t make since to drink the best water that is alkaline to the body and has the ability to flush out the toxic chemicals you have in your body daily.

Restructured alkalinized water (kangen water) has the ability to neutralize acidity in your body, and raise your pH of your body to a more alkaline environment to be able to fight off diseases like diabetes.

For every glass of kangen water you drink you are drinking millions of antioxidants, you can not eat enough fruits and vegetables per day to match what is in 2 to 3 glasses of kangen water, a big hint here, live antioxidants helps your own immune system fight off all disease, there you go you have the answer on how to stop cancer in America.

You want to see the truth about how bad your water really is go to

You have a choice to make here for your family, read this post and blow it off and see what the out come of your child’s health becomes or start doing something and prevent your child from getting some type of degenerative disease, it is called preventive medicine.
