Totally preventable.
 
@BusyMommy : It's not totally preventable. Some of it has to do with genetics which is the case in my family and some people are born with a poor pancreas. Some of us have to live with the cards we're dealt with and hope to keep the disease at bay/controlled for as long as possible before we start losing limbs, eyesight, or die of heart disease. Let's not forget metabolism slows as people age. Guess I ought to become anorexic so my future of diabetes is 100% preventable.

@eighteen : the global rise is preventable- not every individual case.

so is lung cancer
 
@Sammiejo : Wrong. Not everyone who gets lung cancer has been exposed to the typical causes, directly, second-hand, or otherwise.

@brightlights : and not everyone who has D2 eats a ton of sugar. D2 isn't always preventable anymore than lung cancer is.

Will the food industry be held "accountable" like the tobacco industry was with smoking-related illness?....Do we have "across-the-board" policies or not?

@EddyFree : It isn't just the food industry, it is a lack of education as well. What happened to health class?

The bad thing is our own Government has given the public plenty of harmful guidelines.
 
"Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable by taking several simple steps: keeping weight under control, exercising more, eating a healthy diet, and not smoking."

@BusyMommy : And people who have diabetes type 2 are the leading cause of children being born the the diabetes that is actually a genetic deformity known as diabetes type 1

It has been proven that if men are fat and out of shape they actually make worse kids then if they were healthy and in shape. The gene expression in the DNA in a man's sperm actually changes.

@M1cha3lo0o : This is not true. I come from a long line of Type 2 diabetics My grandmother died from complications with diabetes. I'm in the "recent rise of diabetes" numbers. I'm not fat. I have a healthy BMI and BF%. I workout. I've had to completely change my diet, which wasn't easy, because I already eat pretty healthy. Been an athlete pretty much my entire life. I have a crappy pancreas that isn't working like it used to. I basically have to practice 16:8 (working towards 20:4) IF on a daily basis to give my pancreas a better chance at working like it's supposed to. If I'm unable to I have to start taking some kind of medicine to help and it's not looking good.
 
This is all still pretty new for me, so it's a bit frustrating to see y'all talking about it as if it's something that can be controlled. It's a bit frustrating when I have to be picky with a food order and ingredients and people give me dirty looks, or tell me how they did the dieting thing in their 20s. It's a bit frustrating to see people bigger than me stuff their faces freely without a care in the world. My freedom of choice over food has been stripped from me and I can assure you it's genetics.
