Many people seem to think that eating sugar gives you diabetes, but in IRL, that's just plain wrong. You don't get diabetes by eating sugar; you either have a genetic disposition for it (diabetes type 1), or you acquire it by being obese for a long time. Of course, eating to much sugar can lead to obesity, but so can eating to much fat, too much in general, lack of exercise and others.
