A scientific survey has estimated that China has the highest number of diabetics in the world, with nearly a-hundred-and-fourteen million adults living with the disease.

The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, estimates that the disease affects eleven-point-six percent of the adult population - a higher percentage than that in the United States.

The study, which is based on data collected in 2010, says that changing diet and lifestyles in China are to blame.

Angka penderita diabetes di Cina tertinggi di dunia

Survei ilmiah memperkirakan Cina memiliki angka penderita diabetes tertinggi di dunia, mencapai hampir 114 juta orang dewasa.

Penelitian yang diterbitkan Jurnal Asosiasi Dokter Amerika memperkirakan bahwa diabetes mempengaruhi 11,6% populasi dewasa -persentase yang lebih tinggi dibandingkan di Amerika Serikat.

Penelitian berdasarkan data yang dikumpulkan pada 2010 mengatakan bahwa perubahan pola makan dan gaya hidup di Cina menjadi penyebabnya.

Four of Syria's neighbours have expressed dismay at the lack of help they're receiving for the nearly two million Syrian refugees who've fled to their countries.

After a meeting at the United Nations in Geneva, ministers from Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey said they wanted UN member states to meet at the end of this month, to address the refugee crisis, which they said was destabilising the entire region.

The European Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom, said more than fifty-thousand Syrians refugees had arrived in Europe.

She called on European countries to make more of an effort to accommodate them.

Negara tetangga Suriah utarakan kecemasan

Komisi Eropa untuk Urusan Dalam Negeri, Cecilia Malmstrom mengatakan bahwa lebih 50.000 pengungsi Suriah telah tiba di Eropa.
