We just recently mentioned that the rate which Americans are being diagnosed with diabetes is climbing at an alarming rate.
Diabetes rates have gone up over 100% over the past 15 years in 18 states!!
As a 350-plus-pound man, someone like Shaq might seem like he's at risk.
But people forget that he's 7'1" and was a world-class athlete!
He only has 13% body fat! That's waaaay less than most people even half his weight!
Shaq wants to do what he can to help fight the obesity epidemic and stop the climbing rates of diabetes.
Check out the video (above) to hear Shaq's take on the diabetes crisis here in the U.S.!
