The use of high fructose corn syrup become prevalent at the same time as the low fat push, so maybe it is another factor? Fact - the human body lets only fructose or glucose sugars into the bloodstream - all carbohydrates including other sugars become fructose or glucose or do not pass into the bloodstream... Fact - diabetes is an insulin related disease... Fact - eating sugar causes an insulin release, and eating sugar alone causes more insulin to be released than is needed, and the repeated slight excess over time causes chronic insulin tolerance/poisoning- type II diabetes... So does eating "healthy" cereal with sugar and zero-fat skim milk - no fat, no carb, just sucrose sugar which is a fructose-glucose molecule, or no fat skim milk in sugared coffee -- for 30 years of daily insulin bounce cause insulin poisoning (insulin resistance)? No, it couldn't be eating sugar water, without any fat or protein, for breakfast for 30 years - it's the high-fructose corn kernels that did it...

researchers did not show that higher consumption of high fructose corn syrup caused the rise in diabetes, only that there was a link between the two.......and if I can show the same link, say for example, between pickles & diabetes?????

Hobie2 may be onto something... it is correct, that eating fat or protein with a carbohydrate lowers the glycemic index. that's why ice cream has a lower insulin response than white rice (if you combine fat or protein with the rice, then it lowers the insulin response to a healthy level)..
