Does eating too much sugar really cause diabetes?

When you were a child, your parents may have told you that if you eat too much candy, you will develop diabetes. But is there any truth to that statement?

According to a new study out of the UK, sugar may bring on diabetes more quickly in those who have a genetic predisposition to developing type 1 diabetes. In other words, if you are already going to develop type 1 diabetes, extra sugar will help speed things along. Just another reason to limit the sugar in your kids’ diets!
