This is very cool. Particularly since salicylates are so safe, it may be possible, as the article suggests, to do human studies with currently-available drugs pretty quickly. Also, current salicylates might serve as good lead compounds to modify and develop into a more effective drug against the NF-kB production.

I find that quite insulting. As a person who knows several people with diabetes, I don't think your additude is very nice.

Maybe he was confusing obesity with diabetes. Still it's not nice to use that kind of language. :(

While his word choice was poor, he does make an important point. As you undoubtedly know wdlove, obesity greatly increases the risk of developing diabetes. Therefore, a healthy diet and enough exercise are important to preventing this disease, as they are for preventing so many others. This is especially true if you have a high risk of disease by way of heredity. Of course, all the exercise and wise diet choices in the world don't always prevent the disease, and there are other risk factors (like heredity, mentioned above) at work. Therefore, a cure, or at least an effective therapy, is extremely important, considering the number of people who do suffer from the disease.
