Diabetes: Some people are more genetically prone to develop diabetes, but type two diabetes is definitely considered a lifestyle disease and is a result of too many carbs, too little exercise, being overweight, and a list of other lifestyle factors. It doesn't just happen to you, but develops typically over the course of a few years, and can be reversed if you really take on dramatic lifestyle changes.
