    Is it possible to catch diabetes?

    Post by graham64 on Wed Oct 04 2017, 22:11

    Is it possible to catch diabetes? It sounds absurd, but that's what a reputable new study suggests. And it may be that other 'lifestyle' diseases such as joint pain and even obesity are contagious, too


    • Intriguingly, scientists are finding evidence that you may be able to catch ‘lifestyle’ disorders as diabetes, Alzheimer’s and even joint pain



    • Earlier this year, U.S. researchers suggested that type 2 diabetes may be caught from damaged proteins known as prions — these are infectious agents



    • A potential culprit for Alzheimer's has emerged — cyanobacteria, a close relative of algae, which creates blooms on lakes and ponds

    Oh yes, find something in meat to blame, it can't possibly be all the grainz and heart healthy vegetable oils.
