This article gave me the creeps: NYT Health Article on Diabetes

Mostly because apparently seriously lowering the blood sugar of diabetes patients in the study made most of the DIE, but they talk about it as "death rate" instead of, wow! we totally killed these folks. I'm sure they signed a release to be part of the study, but I'd also imagine that they probably didn't think they were signing up to die. It also sounds completely hellish (I guess many studies are)--having to take SO MUCH insulin (or have a pump, which I think of as pretty intense) and probably monitor diet more tightly than, oh, anyone.

I was creeped out, anyway. Yuck.
