It's not just soft drinks. Over-consumption of sugar, including "white" foods (flour, potatoes, rice) that your body easily turns to sugar increase the risk too.

I think I'm a lot better off with my one or two soft drinks a day than someone eating Wonder bread, Twinkies and French fries all day long. Of course, maybe that's just my caffeine addiction talking.

Brenad Davis, a vegan registered dietician and author of BECOMING VEGAN has a book out for treating type 2 diabetes. I am reading it now. It is pretty good.

It is coauthored, with I think, a vegan md and is is geared towards omnis.

The book promotes a high fiber, whole foods regime and encourages people, subetly to go vegan by peppering the book with references to the effect that the whole food, high fiber diet works better when done vegan.

I saw this article and the study sounds pretty unsound- so many things not controlled for. If anyone has some links to solid research (not just paranoid evil-food-of-the-month type sites) linking sugar consumption and diabetes that controls for weight and other lifestyle variables, please link it. I keep hearing people repeat that sugar causes diabetes but I haven't read anything that really shows that.
