Sick overnight!

For those of us who thought we fall sick or get ill... not necessarily! Not sure of the validity of the following statement but there certainly seems to be some lesson to be drawn from this.

Someone else may be sick but we get to take the pills...
Before 1997, the fasting sugar limit for Diabetes was 140, WHO put a panel to decrease it and was fixed as 126.  All of a sudden 14% of world population became diabetics overnight.  Later in 2003, American Diabetic Association again to decrease the limit to 100.  And after this 60% of Indian population became diabetic.  And who are the members of the panels deciding the fasting sugar limits?  They are the consultants of 7 big pharmaceutical companies in the world.  
So much for health and sickness.
