I'm not just sitting around making this stuff up, people.

be making it sound as if I am. I have no reason to do so.

I don't want someone else's interpretation of a study,
article...I want the source so I can read it for myself.
You tried to tie in the CDC news article with your own
belief that obseity can't be the cause of Type 2 diabetes.
But you made it sound like the CDC had come to that
conclusion...at least that's what I got from your post.
(See, that's exactly why it's important to list the
Here's the full article and if you read all of it then you
would have read where they state that "obesity can lead to
Type 2 diabetes," not that Type 2 diabetes leads to
obesity. They also explain what they expect the reason
to be why there hadn't been more of an increase and that
they expect that to change. I'm satisfied now that the
article you were quoting from didn't support any of the
claims that "obesity can't be causing Type 2 diabetes,"
which is what I suspected.
"THE CENTERS FOR Disease Control and Prevention study
found that diabetes rates crept up from an estimated 8.2
percent of adults in 1988-94 to 8.6 percent in 1999-2000.
That is an increase of less than 5 percent.
The CDC expected a larger increase because obesity
? which can lead to diabetes ? has been rising quickly,
climbing 61 percent during the 1990s. As of 2000, 19.8
percent of U.S. adults were obese, according to the CDC.
But health officials warned that because diabetes
is a slow-developing disease, diabetes rates could climb
sharply over the next few years.
Also, lifestyle changes, including dieting and more
exercise, may explain why some high-risk adults have not
developed diabetes, the CDC said."
