Not So Fast: Sugar Consumption May Not Be a Cause of T2 Diabetes

Remember that recent report implicating sugar intake as a cause of type 2 diabetes?

GI News weighs in on its validity:

“A new study in Plos One reports an association between global sugar availability and diabetes prevalence. Despite the headline hype, this study does not in fact provide any strong new evidence that sugar causes type 2 diabetes. Many other better designed studies already provide much stronger evidence that sugar does in fact not cause diabetes. The glycemic and glycemic load are much more powerful predictors of type 2 diabetes risk.”

  1. Duh! How stupid is this? Who conducted it, the sugar industry? Wake up! Carbs almost instantly turns into sugar. See how Dr. Bernstein makes this point as he takes a bite of bread to demonstrate the dangers if too many and the wrong kind of carbs!
