The debate over whether to allocate more research dollars towards finding a cure for diabetes versus spending it on developing new medicines and treatments is not a new one.

Diabetes News Hound ran an article this morning about the link between the growth of the diesease and the profits of big business. You can check out the article here. .

What's your take? Does big business want to find a cure for diabetes or do they want to be able to keep selling medicine and products to the growing number of people with the disease?
