I think it's time to close this thread, and I will say that I stand by my statement that neither eating sugar nor being overweight 'causes' type 2 diabetes.

If everybody who eats sugar and everybody who is overweight were to develop type 2, then it's a moot point. The thing is, there are as many who don't get diabetes as those who do.

This is true. America is exporting its SAD (standard american diet) to the rest of the world and now we are seeing an increase in diseases like strokes, diabetes, and heart attacks just like we have in America. I do believe refined carbs are horrible but I also believe too much saturated fat in the diet is horrible too. The majority of people who have heart attacks in America are not diabetic or perhaps some of them are and just don't now it. These traditional Japenese ppl were eating refined white rice too, and not whole grain brown and very few of them got T2DM. I also believe Lustig is also correct about HFCS as a culprit also. Combine too much saturated fat in the diet with refined carbs, and HFCS in all the soft drinks that most Americans love so much and you have a recipe for a health disaster at some point in your future unless you have inherited some really good genes from your parents.

Remember Robert Atkins. He had a heart attack and also had coronary heart disease eating his same diet. I believe these extreme vegan diets are dangerous too. That is why I only eat fish and the rest of my diet is low glycemic complex whole grain carbs.

Dr. Atkins' death is still shrouded in mystery. However, it appears that his diet did not cause his death.

He died following a fall. Reports that he was obese at the time are also questionable.

Over the last 4 decades, the modern low-fat doctrine has, indeed, achieved impressive results: Obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other metabolic and circulatory diseases have all risen to epidemic levels.
