    conditional without subject

    Hello!
    I have one doubt about conditionals.
    Can I omit the subject at a conditional? What are the rules?

    For example, "You have to avoid sugar! If consumed leads to loss of calcium."


    Thanks a lot,

    Re: conditional without subject

    Li Maia probably knows this, Rover. The question has already received a response in the other forum in which she posted this question.

    Li Maia, please don't post the same question in two forums. It wastes the time of people who respond to a question that has already been answered.

    Li Maia, before I close this thread, please give us a link to the response you received in the other forum, and tell us why you were not satisfied with it.

    It might be helpful to other students who may be interested.
