New Survey Finds Differences In Attitudes About Diabetes Based On Age

US announced today the findings of a new survey that reveals striking differences in opinion among various age groups about diabetes and available treatment options. In particular, the generation known as "millennials" (those aged 18 to 34) shows an uneasy mix of fear and ability to handle managing their diabetes, which is being diagnosed at a rate of 1.7 million new cases every year.

Millennials rate themselves having better knowledge of diabetes than do Americans ages 35 and older, with 72 percent of millennials indicating they are well versed about the condition versus the 64 percent of non-millennials who expressed some knowledge about diabetes. Despite this self-reported understanding, millennials are less likely than older populations to think that diabetes is a serious health condition; overall, 74 percent of millennials think it is serious compared with 84 percent of the older survey respondents.

National Survey Finds Americans Cut Corners with Hand Washing Habits

National Survey Finds Americans Cut Corners with Hand Washing Habits
[title]
As the United States deals with the Enterovirus D68 and while Ebola is a daily headline, a national survey reveals Americans, unfortunately, take short cuts when washing their hands. The survey discovered that Americans don't wash long enough, don't always use soap and sometimes don't wash at all after using a public restroom. The findings are part of a Healthy Hand Washing Survey conducted by Bradley Corporation , an international manufacturer of commercial hand washing products. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends washing for at least 20 seconds to allow enough time to remove and rinse off germs, the survey indicates the majority of Americans (55 percent) are cutting that time short. The CDC suggests singing "Happy Birthday" twice to hit the 20-second mark.
