Diabetes is known world-wide and the incidence varies widely. Epidemiology of this disease has unearthed some fascinating facts. It would seem that parts of the world furthest away from the equator (either north or south) have a higher incidence of diabetes than those countries nearer the equator. For example, the number of people with this disease in France is far lower than in Finland. Even such short distances as between the south of England and the north of Scotland show a distinct difference, the incidence being twice as high in Scotland.
