    Given the choice of taking a pill or injecting oneself with a needle, most of us would opt to regulate a chronic health condition by swallowing a pill. But for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes, a painful needle prick once or twice daily is the only option for delivering the insulin that their bodies cannot produce on their own. Now, Harvard researchers have developed an oral delivery method that could dramatically transform the way in which diabetics keep their blood sugar levels in check.
