    Host Dr. Maurice Pickard speaks with Dr. Nigel Unwin, coordinator of the recently-published third edition of the Diabetes Atlas. They will talk about the United Nations resolution to recognize this disease, which causes four million deaths per year and effects 246 million people worldwide, as having the potential to bankrupt national economies. Dr. Unwin also breaks down myths about diabetes: first, that only the affluent and elderly are at risk; second, that there are no cost-effective interventions for prevention and control.
