    Didn't apply to me or any of my family, which included my parents, my dad died at the age of 94, my 4 siblings, all aged over 60 and none of them have diabetes, either type 2 or type 1.
    I am the only one.

    They may be eating carbs, (I don't have a problem with that) but the statement I disagree with is regardless of how many they eat. I think defining the metabolic health of a populace is more then just a T2 diabetes stat. However, it's the world wide picture that paints a problem with surging rates of diabetes and obesity, poor metabolic health that creates imo more chronic conditions like vascular and organ problems. You don't have to become T2 diabetic to develop these conditions, but we're all free to disagree of course.
