Researchers find six more diabetes genes: study

By Michael Kahn Sun Mar 30, 1:05 PM ET

LONDON (Reuters) – U.S. and European scientists have found six more genes that make people more susceptible to developing type 2 diabetes, in a study they say may help prevent and treat the chronic condition.

The finding extends the total number of genes linked to the disease to 16 and provides clues to how the biological mechanisms that control blood sugar levels go awry when people get type 2 diabetes, the researchers said.

"None of the genes we have found was previously on the radar screen of diabetes researchers," said Mark McCarthy, a diabetes researcher at the University of Oxford, who co-led the study.

"Each of these genes therefore provides new clues to the processes that go wrong when diabetes develops, and each provides an opportunity for the generation of new approaches for treating or preventing this condition."

A diabetic’s blood glucose levels tend to rise too high. Too much glucose in the blood can damage the eyes, kidneys and nerves, and lead to heart disease, stroke and limb amputations.

Type 2 diabetes accounts for about 90 percent of all diabetes cases and is closely linked to obesity and physical inactivity. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 180 million people worldwide have diabetes — a number likely to more than double by 2030.

In the study published in Nature Genetics, researchers from over 40 centers analyzed the genetic data of more than 70,000 people. The team turned up six genetic differences that each individually slightly raise a person’s risk of diabetes.

But the risk for the few people unlucky enough to inherit all six variations is two to three times higher than the average risk, McCarthy said in a telephone interview.

"By getting a handle on the mechanisms involved in disease we can start to tackle them in a more systemic and scientific way," he said.

One of the surprising finds was the link between type 2 diabetes and a gene called JAZF1, which researchers recently showed plays a role in prostate cancer, the researcher added.

The researchers believe the genes — which also include the CDC123-CAMK1D, TSPAN8-LGR5, THADA, ADAMTS9 and NOTCH2 genes — are involved in regulating the number of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, McCarthy said.

Political Correctness

Due to the climate of "Political Correctness" now pervading America, ALL
OF US COUNTRY FOLK will no longer be referred to as ‘HILLBILLIES.’
You must now refer to us as HILL FOLK OR MAYBE RURAL AMERICANS.
And furthermore:
HOW TO SPEAK ABOUT WOMEN AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT:

5. She has not ‘BEEN AROUND’ – She is a ‘PREVIOUSLY-ENJOYED COMPANION.’
6. She is not an ‘AIRHEAD’ – She is ‘REALITY IMPAIRED.’
7. She does not get ‘DRUNK’ or ‘TIPSY’ – She gets ‘CHEMICALLY INCONVENIENCED.’
8. She does not have ‘BREAST IMPLANTS’ – She is ‘MEDICALLY ENHANCED.’

10. She is not a ‘TRAMP’ – She is ‘SEXUALLY EXTROVERTED.’
11. She does not have ‘MAJOR LEAGUE HOOTERS’ – She is ‘PECTORALLY SUPERIOR.’
12. She is not a ‘TWO-BIT HOOKER’ – She is a ‘LOW COST PROVIDER.’ 
HOW TO SPEAK ABOUT MEN AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT:
1. He does not have a ‘BEER GUT’ – He has developed a ‘LIQUID GRAIN STORAGE FACILITY.’
2. He is not a ‘BAD DANCER’ – He is ‘OVERLY CAUCASIAN.’
3. He does not ‘GET LOST ALL THE TIME’ – He ‘INVESTIGATES ALTERNATIVE DESTINATIONS.’
4. He is not ‘BALDING’ – He is in ‘FOLLICLE REGRESSION.’
5. He is not a ‘CRADLE ROBBER’ – He prefers ‘GENERATIONAL DIFFERENTIAL RELATIONSHIPS.’
6. He does not get ‘FALLING-DOWN DRUNK’ – He becomes ‘ACCIDENTALLY HORIZONTAL.’

Seeing as I seem to be frequently called on the carpet as being politically incorrect…I just have

to say I loved this one!

Taxpayer’s Money

 

And by the way, the poor people are not entitled to any of this rebate…Of course, by

the time those who get it buy gas and groceries for their family for one month, there won’t be any left any way.

"…SOOO, If your are fortunate enough to receive a stimulus rebate check, this year…

Don’t feel bad about getting it… read on…the information at the bottom is disgusting!"

"Subject:  UN VOTES

How they vote in the United Nations:

Below are the actual voting records of various Arabic/Islamic States which
are recorded in both the US State Department and United Nations records:
Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time
Qatar votes against the United States 67% of the time
Morocco votes against the United States 70% of the time
United Arab Emirates votes against the U. S. 70% of the time.
Jordan votes against the United States 71% of the time.
Tunisia votes against the United States 71% of the time.
Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73% of the time.
Yemen votes against the United States 74% of the time.
Algeria votes against the United States 74% of the time.
Oman votes against< /FONT > the United States 74% of the time.
Sudan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
Pakistan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
Libya votes against the United States 76% of the time.
Egypt votes against the United States 79% of the time.
Lebanon votes against the United States 80% of the time.
India votes against the United States 81% of the time.
Syria votes against the United States 84% of the time.
Mauritania votes against the United States 87% of the time.

U S Foreign Aid to those that hate us:

Egypt, for example, after voting 79% of the time against the United States,
Still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

Jordan votes 71% against the United States,
And receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

Pakistan votes 75% against the United States,
Receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

India votes 81% against the United States,
Receives $143,699,000 annually

Perhaps it is time to get out of the UN and give the tax savings back to the
American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to pay the taxes (and
gasoline).
Pass this along to every taxpaying citizen you know.
Disgusting isn’t it?"

Interesting!

"…This is very chilling because I checked (call me "doubtful dottie") and this is what that passage says!  It is a real eye opener!

Jan

Read down to the very bottom. You don’t want to miss this!
1. The Garden of Eden was in Iraq

2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization.

3.  Noah built the ark in Iraq 

4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq 

5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq!

6. Isaac’s wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Iraq! 

7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq

8. Jonah preached in Nineveh – which is in Iraq 

9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel 

10. Amos cried out in Iraq! 

11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem

12. Daniel was in the lion’s den in Iraq! 

13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth person in the Fiery Furnace!) 

14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the ‘writing on the wall’ in Iraq 

15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq 

16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq 

17. The wise men were from Iraq. 

18. Peter preached in Iraq. 

19. The ‘Empire of Man’ described in Revelation is called Babylon, which was a city in Iraq!  And you have probably seen this one:  Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible

But do you know which nation is second?  It is Iraq!  However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible.

The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia …The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris
and Euphrates Rivers.  T
he name Iraq, means country with deep roots. 

Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible. 

No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated With it than Iraq 

And also, This is something to think about: 
Since America is typically represented by an Eagle, Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)…
Koran
( 9:11 ) – For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle.. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah;  And there was peace.  (Note the verse number!)

Remember our soldiers fighting in Iraq!…"
