Like "Sugar, as in refined white sugar, isn't the only culprit and it would not stop diabetes from occurring. It is a myth that "candy and sweets" cause it. Try telling a Type 1 that their diabetes will go away if they stop "sugar" only. Not going to happen, as it is an Auto-immune disease. As far as type 2, many things can contribute to it, including some medications like Prednisone. Not to mention, all carbs would need to be addressed. That covers fruits, vegetables, grains, etc. There is more to it than just "sugar"."
