I am an adding this link to a disturbing journal article about the anti-Semitic developer of insulin Dr. Frederick Banting.  I imagine the author of this new book must refer to him but here is the stark portrait of the man.

Dear Genners
 
I am sharing a link to an article I have found interesting on Judaism and diabetes in the beginnings of XX th Century.
 
I understand it is appropriate to this list in that provides a background of cultural history.
 
Let me suggest to NOT post personal stories on the list, for this is just general history.

I have no relation to the author or magazine.
