Study: Diabetes Way Up in Children

Type 1 and 2 diabetes have skyrocketed among kids, says researchers from the Boston Children's Hospital. Between the years 2006-2009 type-1 diabetes has increased a whopping 21 percent and type 2 up 30 percent, USA Today reported. Obesity, poor eating and lack of exercise are to blame for these type-2 numbers.
