Diabetes Study Will Track Sixth Graders

The National Institutes of Health has begun something called the HEALTHY study, a several-year study following sixth graders and their development of diabetes.

Researchers gave sixth graders at several schools a $50 gift card to Wal Mart in exchange for allowing researchers to draw their blood and track them for two and a half years.

One group of students will be exposed to the kinds of food and gym classes available in most U.S. middle schools, and a second group will get healthier cafeteria food, more rigorous gym classes and advice on healthy behaviors.

Why don't they just chip everybody and get the inevitable over with. People are so gullible.
