If any of us ever need it, I'll drive to Mexico or Canada once a year and stock up using tax money.

All of my grandparents have diabetes, two of them have type 2 and two have type 1. Type 2 is also genetic to an extent, if I gained a good amount of weight, even if it was for a short period of time with depression or anything else, I'm at a greater risk than someone who has no diabetes in their family tree.

My kids might have diabetes because of the type 1 my grandparents have. You can't just say "don't be fat lol" as an excuse for predatory business practices when it can lead to the death of someone.
