If you wanted some solid evidence that a high sugar/carbohydrate diet leads to type 2 diabetes, here it is.

"In conclusion, among adults initially in good health, diets higher in GI [glycemic index] or GL [glycemic load were robustly associated with incident T2D. [type 2 diabetes]"

The sad part is it's in almost everything today, maybe someday the water works will start adding sugar to the tap water and make sure.

Indeed. The best advice is to shop the outside aisles of the supermarket, avoiding the bakery of course, as well as stuff like American yogurt which is mostly sugar (they're still stuck in the 70s low fat time warp). Avoid anything touting LOW FAT on the label, in fact. Most cheeses and meats (check for added sugars in some of the meats) from the deli are OK, but skip the potato salad and other T2D stimulus programs. I can't think of anything safe to buy that comes in a box, except perhaps salt.

Good news is I'm starting to see more items with reduced sugar in them on the shelves. As long as they don't make up for the reduced sugar by adding aspartame or some other horror this is a good thing.

One thing to check for is when the label says NO ADDED SUGAR, read the nutritional box. Usually that's because it already has lots of "natural" sugar.  The ideal amount of sugar is zero.
