Abstract The Pima Indians are the fattest population group in the fattest country on earth, and they have the highest prevalence of diabetes in the world. Despite unprecedented research by the National Institute of Arthritis, Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH) and good care by the Indian Health Service (IHS), the problems have grown worse since first recognized in 1963. The causes are multiple: environmental, genetic, cultural, and psychosocial. The real villian, however, is the disease, diabetes. The solution is prevention in Pima children.
