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.
Help us request 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 the petition below.
I petition Google to create a doodle to honor November 14, 2012 as the 121st birthday of one of medical history’s true heroes: Sir Frederick Banting. He and Charles Best discovered insulin and gave the gift of life to millions of people who had previously been condemned to death.
5,055 people have signed this petition so far.
