...we found that every 150 kcal/person/day increase in sugar availability (about one can of soda/day) was associated with increased diabetes prevalence by 1.1% (p <0.001) after testing for potential selection biases and controlling for other food types(including fibers, meats, fruits, oils, cereals), total calories, overweight and obesity, period-effects, and several socioeconomic variables such as aging, urbanization and income. No other food types yielded significant individual associations with diabetes prevalence after controlling for confounders. The impact of sugar on diabetes was independent of sedentary behavior and alcohol use, and the effect was modified but not confounded by obesity or overweight...

Diabetes is /might be / inherited from 3 generations back..

while they may not have developed diabetes because they did not live long enough, this is a condition that is inherent in many.  People used to die within 3 years of discovering they had it.

Sugar or not, many can have the sugar and have no ill effects others stay away from sugar and still succumb eventually.

I am glad that I found out about my propensity to get diabetes long before I had to face it, because i read it in Dr D's books.  With his writing i became aware that I had one parent who developed it and one sibling.. and by the time they are all as old as I am two other females at least will have it also. Another of the same family will not because she has different genes.

With awareness, becoming attuned to a situation, it is much easier treated, reduced, dealt with, then when it was not known, nor suspected...

Sugar for the next generations will be much worse, as staples of grains are absorbed by many in place of better foods.  

Grains I think are much more detrimental then sugar alone.  I would like to see a study done on that!

Here is one by Peter

Quoted Text
Salacia is a genus of plants in the family Celastraceae. One species in particular, Salacia oblonga, used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine, is increasingly becoming the subject of considerable medical interest because of its potential as an anti-diabetic agent. The herb is a native of India and Sri Lanka and has been used in traditional Indian medicine and Ayurveda successfully for years. The active constituents, salacinol and kotalanol, inhibit alpha-glucosidase and aldose reductase. The inhibition of these substances decreases the breakdown of carbohydrates into absorbable monosaccharides and therefore decreases postprandial (after meal) blood glucose levels. ...

Type 2 Diabetes has become one of the most common and fastest growing diseases. Fully one in eight adults (approximately 29 million people) now report that they have been diagnosed with this life-threatening condition. It's occurring in epidemic proportions and according to the Harris poll, many people are not aware of the causes or warning signs and may not seek help until serious complications arise.

From the Diabetes fight it with the Blood Type Diet Book:

Obesity is the number one sign that you may be pre-diabetic. Obesity is always accompanied by insulin resistance, which leads to diabetes. When it comes to body fat and insulin resistance, the easiest way to think of this problem is in terms of a sliding scale; more body fat = more insulin resistance.
