    Myth: Eating too much sugar causes diabetes.

    Fact: The answer is not so simple. Type 1 diabetes is caused by genetics and unknown factors that trigger the onset of the disease; type 2 diabetes is caused by genetics and lifestyle factors.

    Being overweight does increase your risk for developing type 2 diabetes, and a diet high in calories from any source contributes to weight gain. Research has shown that drinking sugary drinks is linked to type 2 diabetes.

    The American Diabetes Association recommends that people should avoid intake of sugar-sweetened beverages to help prevent diabetes. Sugar-sweetened beverages include beverages like:

    regular soda
    fruit punch
    fruit drinks
    energy drinks
    sports drinks
    sweet tea
    other sugary drinks.
    These will raise blood glucose and can provide several hundred calories in just one serving!


    See for yourself:

    Just one 12-ounce can of regular soda has about 150 calories and 40 grams of carbohydrate. This is the same amount of carbohydrate in 10 teaspoons of sugar!
    One cup of fruit punch and other sugary fruit drinks have about 100 calories (or more) and 30 grams of carbohydrate.
    - See more at: Diabetes Myths: American Diabetes Association®
    Yeah. It's a myth that sugar "causes diabetes" because the causes are "much more complicated". But the advice to avoid diabetes (at least type II) remains the same: limit sugary drinks. In other words, it's not 1-to-1 cause and effect, but it remains a bad idea.

    The "genetics" part is that the point at which you start having a diabetic reaction is different from person to person. Some people get there very easily without being much overweight at all. Other people get there only after becoming morbidly obese. Still other people get there only as they get older.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    How am I supposed to make myself eat healthy foods if I can't even get myself to eat unhealthy foods that I like?

    But I'll be good. I'll go make some broccoli I do like broccoli.
