Of course it’s not a satisfactory solution.
But it is nature’s course if we aren’t smart enough to care for ourselves.
Right so we’re back to how do we foster an environment in which a higher percentage of people eat healthily and exercise?
It’s a political question really, I suppose. Or is trying to do this even less satisfactory than “letting nature take it’s course”?
And I we already have some statistics. Miscarriage rates for uncontrolled diabetes can be as high as 30-60%.
Yes but that’s not what I meant. This doesn’t tell us if obese women have less children than non obese. It doesn’t tell us if obese women who go on to get diabetes have less children than non obese. And it doesn’t even tell us if obese women who get diabetes and miscarry have less children than non obese.
