    since when was type 1 diabetes related to lifestyle ??? I dont think hes a doctor otherwise he would have known type 1 diabetes is an auto immune condition which is not related to food or exercise

    Correlation is not causation. Bacteria and fungus in region where parents lived will likely affect gut biome. This is likely cause of type 2 bacteria.

    So basically, no it's not. Stop eating junk and at least go in a walk most days of the week/move around a bit.
