just before the summary....in case anyone missed it

"Of note, there is little evidence that total carbohydrate intake is associated with the development of type 2 diabetes (30 ,70 ,73 ,74 ). Rather, a stronger association has been observed between total fat and saturated fat intake and type 2 diabetes (75 ,76 ), although not all findings are in agreement (30 ). Additionally, two prospective cohort studies have shown no risk of diabetes from consuming increased amounts of sugar (74 ,77 ), and in one study, a negative association was observed between sucrose intake and diabetes risk (72 ). Intakes of both whole grains (72 ,78 ) and dietary fiber (in particular, cereal fiber) are associated with lower risk of type 2 diabetes (30 ,7072 "
