    No, I don't, and anyone that buys into that B.S. has to be very ignorant.

    There are many causes of diabetes, a persons diet is but one of the causes of type 2, as there is of type 1.

    Yes, because people buy cheaper food, snacks, juice and soda, most of which contain either high levels of fat or sugar or both. This type of diet over time can cause type 2 diabetes.

    Yes. The poor and uneducated eat a lot of junk food. But democraps like that. When all the dumb people are inflicted with obesity related health problems, they come looking for the govt. to help them out.

    Food stamps should be limited to what they can buy, just like WIC is. We have t he fattest poor people in the world, it's disgusting and a disgrace.
