Sorry. One more thing. As things relate to Ireland, out of the "top" 88 developed countries, Ireland ranks 71 (with 88 being the most prevalent and 1 being the least prevalent) and is tied with Poland and Montenegro. The highest prevalence is in Finland, Sweden and Norway and lowest prevalence is in Venezuela, Ethiopia and Thailand. The article suggests folks in the Scandinavian countries at one point experienced a very sudden Ice Age and could have prompted the genetic adaptation for high glucose in the blood to fend off quickly freezing to death. With those countries having a low prevalence being around the equator with consistently warm climates throughout history, it's a pretty good theory.
