A suggestion was made that people in government should wear uniforms like Nascar drivers showing who is ‘sponsoring’ them. Personally I agree. I’d take it another step however and say […]

This is a follow up to yesterday’s post “See, hear and Speak No Evil….”. It is a story of a friend of mine and his battle with Crohns Disease. I also discuss the similarities in treatment and in poor medical advice for both Diabetes and Crohns from the medical establishment. In […]

Low carb paleo benefits many diseases, not just diabetes. I've seen it improve the lives of so many. The key is eating and living more in tune with how we were designed to eat and live.

Diabetic Shot 9
I placed the date in the title for a reason…. I do not have high hopes for a change in the American Ass. of Diabetes Educators (AADE). In case I am right, I want to be able to use the same title next year… :( Why am I so negative about […]

If you were the President of the national group representing diabetes educators, would you cozy up to a group dedicated to promoting their harmful products to the diabetics?  The American Association of Diabetes Educators does. The Sugar Ass. had a booth at the national diabetes educator’s convention. The Diabetes Educators group was […]

Big Food, Big Pharma and the Medical Industry all profit from diabetes. Diabetes “costs” us all greatly, for non-diabetics it’s ‘only’ money, but for diabetics it’s money and quality of life issues. Diabetes Money Trail Greed for money and power are the root of many of our planet’s ills.   […]
