What I'd really like to know is why isn't anybody in the media talking about the fact that refined sugar is a leading cause of that disease, and several others diseases, and yet food companies sneak refined sugar in literally E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G because they know it makes it more addictive. Hence more sales. Hence more diabetes. This insanity has been going on for decades. Why isn't that covered more? People aren't being educated properly by the media how to eat healthy and how difficult it is to eat healthy when practically every single type of man-made/prepackaged food on the store shelves nowadays has either toxic oils or refined sugar or both. Look for yourselves on the ingredients labels. You'll be hard-pressed to find anything nowadays without one or both of those but especially refined sugar added in any one of its various expertly veiled alternate names.

Well "sugary" products are the more obvious culprit, but the less obvious culprit and the most important is basically everything else! Breads, condiments of all sorts, canned vegetables, virtually everything under the sun now that is prepackaged has sugar in it. Even things that are supposed to be healthy, which means the general public typically ends up buying into false advertising thinking that they are eating healthy when in fact refined sugar is just building up in their system unendingly for years causing disease. That's primarily what I'm referring to here.
