Diabetes a big concern among truckers
Today, November 14th is World Diabetes Day. It was first introduced in 1991, and founded by both the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization. In reaction to the rise in cases of Diabetes worldwide, it was decided to choose a day of the year to raise awareness of diabetes and related causes. The day chosen was the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, a medical scientist who co-discovered Insulin and was the first person to use it on humans. Diabetes is a concern for many people, but it is a particularly big issue for truck drivers.
