India has the world's highest diabetes rate. India has a plant
dominated diet. Nuff said.


Look it up again. India has the world's largest population of
diabetics: not the highest rate. India has an estimated
rate of 9.2 percent.

Looking at the map it seems like Lebanon has the world's highest
rate of diabetes at 20.2 percent followed by Saudi Arabia.

Also have a look at how much diabetics spend for health care. The
US is the world leader at $8142, while Indians spend an average of
$68.
