I'm on a forum for something parented related. There's a thread going on about what you feed your kids and of course the whole "diabetes is preventable if you don't feed your kid crap" thing came up. I let the poster know that there are different types and my son didn't develop it from diet, it's an autoimmune problem. So she backed down, apologized, but now is going on about it again. Why on earth do people not look things like this up before they spill out crap like this? Before diagnosis, I didn't know much about it but I'd never make such a bold statement before at least googling it! I admit I don't know much about type 2, so I don't talk about it.
