  1. Type II diabetes is genetic. You may not know you have it for 30-40 years. For most people the first time they discover they have it is when they symptoms become bad enough that a doctor tests them for it. It is a natural conclusion that many people jump to that it is your diet/lifestyle that "causes" diabetes. After all your diet can treat diabetes so why wouldn't it cause it, right?? But it does not. You don't "catch" diabetes from sugar or over eating. You get diabetes from your parents. If you don't have diabetes then eating sweets or gaining wieght will not give it to you. Jamie Oliver is siomply a well meaning dunce who's particular bias is food. He believe in magic food, i.e. that "good" food will make you live forever (or at least a long time) and bad food will make you catch diabetes or something. Of course it isn't true. Our life expectancy keeps increasing every year and yet we continue to eat "bad" food. Go figure!
    One last point. the number of people with diabetes is not and has not increased. The medical community is putting forth an effort to identify people with diabetes early so they can benefit from treatment. Consequently we are seeing more people with diabetes then before. That does NOT mean there is more diabetes!!
