What Is Causing Diabetes

Discovering the true cause of diabetes is a complicated task to say the least, in the pursuit to identify a single source cause as being the sole reason for the rapid rise in diabetes in the U.S. population over the past few decades.

However, several research studies consistently identify certain food related components as playing a part in causing this self-inflicted illness. Diabetes first gripped the U.S in the early 1960's, and in that short time, diabetes is rapidly spreading around the globe. In this site we will focus on the true root cause and ultimately, the prevention.


Thirty years ago diabetes cases were often referred to or described as "sugar diabetes." It was a disease that adults eventually got from eating to much white sugar. There were few cases back in those days and the disease was considered to be somewhat of a novelty and would often be the topic of curious discussion. Recently, the debate as to how to get diabetes has now expanded to include other more mysterious chemicals and food additives as possible culprits in causing the spread of diabetes.
