Diabetes is emerging as one of the biggest health threats in the modern world, and according to a 2010 report from the Centers for Disease Control, 1 out of 3 adults in the United States could be diagnosed with diabetes by the year 2050.  As ABC NEWS reports, however, an answer to many people’s prayers may be right around the corner.  “On March 5th, researchers under the leadership of Dr. Camillo Ricordi at the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami announced a medical breakthrough, a biologically-engineered organ that would mimic the pancreas in creating the precise amount of insulin the body would need at any given moment, thereby controlling the patient’s blood sugar levels. Called the ‘BioHub,’ it was described as “the closest medical science has gotten to a cure” for Type 1 diabetes, the variety also known as juvenile diabetes because most patients develop it either during their childhood or teen years.”  You can read the full story at ABC NEWS.
