Frederick Banting ca. 1920–1925 in Toronto, Ontario
There are more than a 366 million people with diabetes in the world. Of those, almost 100 million depend on insulin to live. November 14 is the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting (shown above), one of the main discoverers of insulin. His discovery was so significant that this date has been designated as World Diabetes Day by the United Nations.
Join Diabetes Hands Foundation in requesting that Google create a doodle to honor the birthday of this great man, to whom people who inject insulin owe so much, by completing and sharing this petition.
