Due to this, a portion of the population with diabetes became resistant to insulin. Ely Lilly partnered with Genentech, a biotechnology company, to genetically engineer bacteria that could synthesize and secrete human insulin; this was termed “Humulin.” The market’s response was poor, however to the large-scale biotechnology plant, where $700 million was invested. Consumers resisted its high price. Also, Ely Lilly failed to recognize the different flow patterns of diabetic patients, who wanted to control their blood glucose levels carefully.

Trans Fat December 12, 2012 Trans Fat One of the ways Americans can avoid health problems caused by trans fat is for the government to heavily regulate trans fat. A couple of years ago consumers weren’t able to determine how much trans-fat was in products. Companies weren’t telling costumers how much of the hydrogenated oil ingredient was in their products. Because consumers weren't aware of this Americans were eating about five to six grams per day, Americans did not even know the damage they were making to their diet and also the health problem that would arise in the future. The daily amount recommended is less than 0.5 grams (Kalin, 2011).
