TO John M. Berardi: Caffeine and Diabetes

In your latest Appetite For Construction, it was said that coffee and caffeine can add to the onset of some types of diabetes. Is this only with the caffeine in coffee or can diet sodas do the same thing? I drink a couple each day. is this enoght to be concerned with?

Thanks.

Caffeine is caffeine I’m guessing, regardless of the beverage.

Bumpin’ for effect. Anyone else have ideas?

Why are you bumping this? Because you didn’t get the answer you wanted to hear? Caffeine is caffeine. It’s not magically transformed into something else by being in a different drink. Use your head.
