Happy Birthday Insulin!

Dear Insulin,
We've been together a LONG time. You are my life support. Without you I would not be living the wonderful life I have. I am so thankful for your discovery, and advancements. Until we find a cure we have you, and we are happy for you! (and a piece of that cake would mean about 4.2 units of insulin)

To this man, we give our THANKS!

Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas. It was isolated in 1921-22 at the University of Toronto. The scientists involved in the research were Dr. Fredrick Banting, Charles Best (a medical student at the time of the discovery), Professor J. J. R. Macleod and Dr. James Collip. On June 3, 1934, Dr Frederick Banting the co-inventor of insulin was knighted for his medical discovery.

Kickin' it "Old School"

Thank-you Canada!
