This statistic is staggering, especially when we realize that there was practically no diabetes prior to 1940!
May 27, 2006: Study finds that a third of American adults have diabetes, and many do not know it. (Reference: June 2006 issue of Diabetes Care).
“Our results underscore the importance of tight glucose [sugar] control in limiting beta-cell destruction…” Glucose [sugar from carbohydrates] causes diabetes. (Reference: Diabetes 2001; 50 1683-1690).
Symptoms of Diabetes
Type I (often come on suddenly and severely)
-Need to urinate often
-Weight loss (though you’re hungry and eating)
-Weakness and tiredness
Type II (sometimes do not occur or come on gradually)
-Cuts or sores that are slow to heal
-Itchy skin, yeast infections
-Need to urinate often
Low-Carbs and Diabetes
1999: Diet of 50% fat [half fat], 30% protein, and 20% [low] carbohydrates improves weight loss and blood lipid profiles in Type II diabetics. (Reference: abstract of presentation before 1999 meeting of Endocrine Society by James Hayes, MD, endocrinologist.
Why Do We Die?
Two-thirds (66%) of people die from just two conditions that involve fatty degeneration.
- Cardiovascular disease - 43.8%
- Cancer - 22.4%
95% of Americans are deficient in essential fatty acids (EFAs). (Reference: Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill (2nd edition), Udo Erasmus, Alive Books, Burnaby, BC, Canada, 1993.
One way disease works is that the body can produce its own "cleansing" agents (such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and prions) when the need arises. These agents may also be transmitted from others or, as in the case of Mad Cow Disease, by humans ingesting prions by eating the flesh of infected animals.
When these agents start cleaning out the toxins in the body, the toxins are dumped into the bloodstream to be filtered and eliminated from the body. These toxins then cause symptoms doctors diagnose as "disease." Diseases are usually named according to symptoms.
The medical and pharmaceutical establishments then try to produce an enzyme disrupter (allopathic drug) to STOP the cleansing process. This is not done to cure but in order to stop the patient's uncomfortable symptoms.
The drug NEVER "cures" the disease. It just stops the cleansing process so the patient's body remains sick and filled with the toxins, even though the patient may feel somewhat better -- at least for a time. (Reference: Dr. Joseph Mercola, 2003. mercola.com).
"Medicine is far from having decreased human sufferings as much as it endeavors to make us believe. Indeed, the number of infectious diseases has greatly diminished. But we still must die in a much larger proportion from degenerative diseases," Dr. Alexis Carrel, "Man, the Unknown."
