The actual cause of diabetes has been up for debate for sometime and according to the current ideas on whether diet plays a factor, it looks like the debate will continue for sometime. No one currently knows if there are specific causes that can be isolated. In addition, it has not been proven as to what foods help or hurt diabetes. In 2013, over $1 billion was spent to research diabetes according to statistics that have been published by the National Institute of Health. These studies were funded in order to try and find out exactly what is causing diabetes which has grown to be a top cause of death in the United States just behind heart disease and cancer.
