Due to high taxes, the cost of diabetes accessories like glucose testing strips is unaffordable for a majority of the population affected by the disease. This is because testing and injections are done very frequently, up to even five times a day. As a result, many low income diabetics end up admitted in hospitals and end up with huge bills, a problem that could be solved by making the meds and accessories cheaper. Instead of having millions spent for tea and lunch in government offices, heal the world. Make it a better place.

You may not be a diabetic or know someone who is, but that doesn't mean you try to unsee this issue. Nobody chose to have diabetes. In some cases, it's inherited and is totally uninfluenced by the lifestyle. Cancer kills, but so does diabetes. However, it has not been treated with the respect it deserves.

If this is put through as law, many lives will be saved. If not, well it doesn't take a graduate to know the outcome.
