    Too much intake of carbohydrate foods results in high sugar level in the blood stream.
    When one eats foods like Garri,rice,yam and starchy fruits like banana on a daily basis,the blood converts the excess carbohydrate in the body system into glucose and later on sugar,this blocks the arteries and makes the blood coagulate.
    Thereby resulting in Diabetes mellitus

    Our bodies run on sugars.  All carbohydrates are converted to sugars.  What is important is the total nutrition in a food and the complex of micro-nutrients contained in the food.  It's the rate of conversion that makes the difference.  Avoid refined carbs, consume complex carbs.
