Danish drugs giant makes big UK investment.

Denmark's Novo Nordisk is to invest £115m over 10 years in a new science research centre in Oxford.

Eventually employing 100 academics and scientists, the facility will work on new ways of treating type 2 diabetes.

The decision to invest in the UK was described by David Gauke, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, as "a vote of confidence in the UK's position as a world-leader in science and research".

Novo Nordisk said it was attracted by Oxford's history of "excellence"

With over 400 million diabetics in the world and rising, around 90% are type two diabetics, the drug companies can hear the cash registers ringing. Up to now, most type two drugs are close to useless, some have been banned for killing people, and many are over the long term extremely expensive. Throw in all have side effects, some very serious, and the right diet makes evermore sense. The right diet is here.

Stupid drug companies!! But, I guess sometimes, the patients are to blame too? I know we have a very close friend to our family. She is only 50 and she has diabetes! She takes many pills! She won't eat vegetables! Maybe corn or potatoes! We try to get her to eat spinach, broccoli, etc. We even said to her, make a shake! But, she won't listen! Unfortantetly, her mom and father are the same! What can you do, right? I keep hoping one day, she will open her eyes!
