In our study, if every woman ate a healthy diet, exercised a half hour a day, was not overweight, did not smoke, and drank a small amount of alcohol, over 90 percent of diabetes cases would have been eliminated...This is, of course, a hypothetical concept.
--Frank Hu, HSPH, Harvard School of Public Health
