And diabetics.... wasn't insulin originally derived from pigs

Very few diabetics need insulin (all T1's need it and a small proportion of T2's - since T2 diabetes affects 90% of diabetics the vast majority control it will diet and/or tablets).

I take a synthesised extract of French Lilac for mine (commonly called Metformin or Metfartin' by those who take a lot of it..) mixed with a glitazone-class drug to improve efficacy.
