Really I blame the journalist, not the study .,.. but there are so many confounding factors! Like, you know, genetics, ethnicity, poverty -- OF COURSE the poor eat more rice, less protein .... and what does the fool writing the article come up with at the end??? Diet, obesity, exercise.

Not one mention of trying to comply with government dietary guidelines, or income level, or environmental chemicals ...

here's an updated link (I got an error otherwise)

White rice link seen with Type 2 diabetes, says study - Yahoo! News

It doesn't really surprise me... even those cultures that traditionally eat rice-based meals but didn't used to have a lot of diabetes have begun eating much more sugar as well. I think it's not the grain alone (most of humanity has been eating grain-based diets for centuries without the number of diabetics we're seeing now)... I think it's more the grain on top of increased sugar consumption.

It'll be interesting to see how this study compares to ones they did years ago.

My favorite dish when my grandmother was alive and cooking was rice pudding. It was so sweet, made with condensed sweetened milk and sugar, with more sugar on top so it would brown under the broiler.

.... but, where is most rice grown? And who might have a financial want to move the spotlight off themselves? Can you say US corn and wheat growers?

I think the bottom line is if you are eating more carbs than your body can process then you will become diabetic. I'm not sure you can blame it on one food. I never ate a lot of white rice but I did eat brown rice, not in huge quatities, though. I did eat a lot of wheat and other grains. But lots of people can eat wheat with no problem. Most of these studies have an agenda. Lately in the news we hear about Food Deserts. So they are pushing Whole Foods to build in poorer neighborhoods. I'm not sure that will help. There are plenty of foods at Whole Foods that will spike your bg to kingdom come. Same thing about Trader Joes. They advertise as a healthy alternative, but you need to be careful most of the food is high carb.

It would be intersting to compare the amount of diabetics in Japan compared to the US. I would gather the US is much higher even though our white rice consumption is lower. I hate all these studies that pick out one food and say,
"Look, you are Diabetic because you ate this". Everytime I read a story about how certain foods will prevent Diabetes, I laugh. I ate every one of those foods for many years before Diabetes.
