A new report by the International Diabetes Federation revealed that the number of people with diabetes has increased to a new high this year. More than 300 million have diabetes and the people are affected by type 2 diabetes which is connected with a poor diet and exercise.

It seems fair to call diabetes an epidemic. Would you agree?

Guest: Dr. Anne Peters is the director of the USC Clinical Diabetes Program.
