    I have no opinion on the diabetes portion of this article.  However,  I take tremendous issue with the statement:  "We need to treat diabetes like lung cancer and COPD; all of these diseases are preventable with lifestyle," Gower said. Lung cancer is NOT preventable with lifestyle.  I, like tens of thousands of people every year, got lung cancer without any risk factors.  At 40.  "Nonsmoker's lung cancer" kills more people each year than liver cancer, lymphoma, or leukemia, just to name a few.  Get educated Dr. Gower.
