British Inbreeding Blamed for Diabetes Rise

 

Type-1 diabetes is on the rise in Norwich, England, as well as the debate over the cause of the increase. Dr Ian Gibson, a former science lecturer and current Labour MP, points to long-established inbreeding as the cause of the rise in Norfolk.

"There is a genetic element, but it may be triggered by an environmental factor. Nobody knows why it is rising," retorts Dr Ketan Dhatariya, a consultant dealing with diabetes in the Norwich area where diabetes cases are double than expected.

Inbreeding, Dr Gibson argues, happens everywhere, giving rise to groups with certain genetics due to 'familiarity' among families with the same name, brothers, and 'so on'. Norwich, however, is not as isolated as people wish to believe, he says.

  hmmm,  
 
knowing people and colleagues from there and it being round the corner... i can say diabetes is the least concern for interbreeding.... they should look more at mental problems.

they should send the team that researched this to west virginia, perhaps they'll have a larger sample group of inbreeder.

sorry for anyone living there, its just a state notoriously known for inbreeding.
