10-31.32 FACT: TYPE 2 DIABETES IS CAUSED BY TOO MUCH SUGAR

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

“FACT: TYPE 2 DIABETES IS CAUSED BY TOO MUCH SUGAR

AT ITS VERY core, type 2 diabetes can be understood as a disease caused by too much insulin, which our bodies secrete when we eat too much sugar. Framing the problem this way is incredibly powerful because the solution becomes immediately obvious. We must lower our insulin levels by reducing our dietary intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates (a form of sugar). Imagine your body as a big sugar bowl. At birth, the bowl is empty. Over several decades, you eat sugar and refined carbohydrates and the bowl gradually fills up. When you next eat, sugar comes in and spills over the sides of the bowl because the bowl is already full. The same situation exists in your body.”
