    I realize that canned meat has a lot of sodium but when you are by yourself it is a lot more convient to open a can than to cook a meal. Maybe there is a middle ground between all or none that could be reached. You don’t have to use canned meat at every meal and you can read lables and stay away from the worst offenders.

    Thats a very interesting that this study was done on Native Americans because I’m from Hawaii and Inever heard of anyone else eating as much spam as we do-in fact when I moved to the states some of my friends were like “what is Spam?” anyway I can see the connection we island people have with the Native Americans- because we have one of the highest rates of Diabetes and Kidney disease. In fact I was raised on it and I have kidney disease.

    The answer is both, pbraboly?Ten years ago I believed there had to be a genetic disposition in order to develop type 2 diabetes, now I believe that lifestyle and/or genetics can bring the disease on. There are numerous studies that show people who have no history of diabetes in their families are developing the disease but to be fair it isn’t always possible to know if their is a family history of diabetes since many are never diagnosed and/or are not telling anyone they have it.
