No, it’s far worse…. socialism!!!

I heard from Tucker that this can only mean the death of America if we don’t charge people a fee for being born with a genetic condition that can’t be cured and can only be treated daily.

“Hold on, which sort of diabetic are you? It’s very important to determining whether or not you’re going to go into crushing medical debt that you can never escape from! Hold on, we’ve got another patient.

What’s that? You had a workplace accident and lost your finger? Well, that’s on you, buddy. Yeah— shouldn’t have worked for a place that was violating OSHA. So you’re fully responsible for that one. Personal accountability and whatnot. Anyway, sue them and see how it goes, only way you’ll get paid. Oh, mandatory arbitration clause? With a judge of their choice? Oof. Real tough. Anyway, here’s the bill you will be 100% responsible for.”

It's only "fair". /s

What's with all these people obsessed with deciding who does and does not deserve help. Like how does it affect you personally?

What sentiment are you implying precisely?

From your own source:

Type 1 diabetes

In most cases of type 1 diabetes, people need to inherit risk factors from both parents. We think these factors must be more common in white people because white people have the highest rate of type 1 diabetes.

Because most people who are at risk do not get diabetes, researchers want to find out what the environmental triggers are. One trigger might be related to cold weather. Type 1 diabetes develops more often in winter than summer and is more common in places with cold climates. Another trigger might be viruses. It’s possible that a virus that has only mild effects on most people triggers type 1 diabetes in others. Early diet may also play a role. For example, type 1 diabetes is less common in people who were breastfed and in those who first ate solid foods at later ages.

Stop trying to spin facts to fit your narrative

Yes but you stated diet and exercise as triggers for it to develop and that's flat out wrong. Well diet is correct but it's concerning breastmilk. The way you phrased it insinuates that infants and you children trigger their own type 1 diabetes by poor diet and lack of exercise, or conversely can be prevented the same way, and, *while the environmental contributing factors are still being discovered and studied, what you said is absolutely incorrect.

What if the reason you ate yourself into a disease is that you suffered an unbalanced gut biome that resulted in incorrect hunger messages being sent constantly to your brain insisting that you needed to eat more?

The gut bacteria in your system has an honestly frightening amount of control over your urges from how much to eat and even WHAT you feel in the mood to eat. The bacteria in question doesn't particularly care about you, it cares about itself. All things being normal, the various colonies balance out and all is well, but anything from stress, to medicine, to even an imbalanced diet can result in long term gut biome instabilities.

Try thinking about it for longer than 30 seconds
