Countries with the most sugar available also have the highest diabetes rates

(February 27, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From California - According to research published in PLOS ONE, eating too much sugar may be directly related to risk of diabetes. Researchers studied 10 years of data from 175 countries on their diabetes rates and availability of sugar. They found that the more sugar in a population's food supply, the higher their diabetes rate. Specifically, every additional 150 calories of sugar available per person per day, diabetes prevalence rose by 1%. These results were consistent even after controlling for obesity, physical activity levels, and economic factors.
