I read this article and I just had to discuss, I found it on ScienceDaily.com … I recommend that you review the studies occasionally… just be careful the studies are not tainted. Here’s a post I did on an obvious study tainting.
Back to today’s article
Diabetics in the US, Six Other Countries Ineffectively Treated for Diabetes and Related Risk Factors
Did you read this HEADLINE!!!
If you spend much time in the “Diabetes Community” this will NOT be a shock to you. Almost everyone who has been a diabetic for any length of time has experienced diabetes complications of some kind.
The sad news? … I’d bet the bar for “effective treatment” is set far too low. I’m sure they are using the same ‘old standards’ like an A1C below 7 or even 6. In other words, the ‘real’ numbers are much higher than reported in this study. EVEN using their numbers this is a travesty.
Roughly 90% of diabetics are type 2’s … ALL of them would benefit IMMEDIATELY from a low carb primal meal plan ( like mine ) … yet the American Diabetes Association and the American Association of Diabetes Educators still promotes a grain laden meal plan that benefits three groups… grain companies (like Monsanto), Agra-biz (like PepsiCo) and all of Big Pharma ( large drug companies).
… ok, ok, I’m fired up and I haven’t read past the headline… :) I’ll step off my soapbox…for now.
“Millions of people worldwide may be at risk of early death from diabetes and related cardiovascular illnesses because of poor diagnosis and ineffective treatment …”
My point that I want to ‘hammer home’ … even if they received the best care money could buy…millions of people would be on a meal plan guaranteed to require them to take ever increasing amounts of drugs and insulin.
Who benefits from this? Big Pharma, Monsanto and PepsiCo …and the American Diabetes Association through increased “donations” from those groups.
“In the United States alone, nearly 90% of adult diabetics – more than 16 million adults aged 35 and older — have blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol that are not treated effectively…”
A couple of points about this quote……
1) If this is true and I personally believe the number is higher…. why in the HELL does ANYONE trust the medical community for advice?
WHEN IN THE HELL is a 10 % success rate good????
EVERYONE who eats and exercises like I do… EVERYONE reduces drugs and INSULIN!
EVERYONE who eats and exercises like I do … EVERYONE improves blood sugar control….
2) Diabetics have blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol issues BECAUSE they eat a meal plan that …
- is a similar meal plan given to cows to fatten them up for slaughter… high carb (grains) , low fat, low protein.
- designed to increase the profits of the American Diabetes Association’s largest contributors.
- Big Pharma
- Big Agrabiz (like PepsiCo and Monsanto)
- the meal plan is designed to create the need for more drug users.
Remember… everyone who eats a low carb paleo meal plan … EVERYONE reduces drugs and insulin…. everyone.
At MINIMUM 90% of diabetics are not being treated fairly… in the USA. That’s moms, dads, brothers and sisters…. all who would greatly benefit from a meal plan not designed to pad the pockets of the ADA’s major contributors.
We “the people” should be rallying together to fight the monie interests who buy ‘nutritional advice’ via tainted studies…..
We have a 10% success rate in treating diabetes ( a disease growing rapidly) and people will not pull together to fight the purveyors of influence.
If a 90% Failure rate is NOT GOOD ENOUGH … JOIN ME in this fight by signing up for my newsletter… a box is on the right hand column.
