Eating sugar? No diabetes

Myth: Eating too much sugar? You will become diabetic
Fact: The next time anyone stops you from relishing those chocolates or marshmallows, saying that you will become diabetic, don’t believe them. Diabetes is a result of genetic and some lifestyle related factors, and is certainly not caused by eating excessive sugar. It is a disorder that can be inherited if someone in your family is suffering from it. Also, if you are overweight or obese and binge on sweets, you have strong chances of suffering from Type 2 diabetes, as eating too much sugar can increase your weight. So, if a family member has diabetes or if you are overweight, it is important for you to eat healthy food and exercise regularly.
