Diabetes tied to aging
« on: August 14, 2018, 09:11:07 PM »
The diabetic population in Guatemala has risen to 25% of the general population. Alarming indeed, but this group of scientists (?) have looked at everything for reasons, except “diet”.

Whereas wise man Hippocrates declared 2500 years ago that “All disease begins in the gut”. I found the absence of dietary cause in the study “alarming”.

There is no money to be made if people change their diets to lc/hf. No one is going to acknowledged diet as a control. The blame game continues on and it is sad because there is a way to get control, but big pharma and big agra don't want us to find out how easy it really is.

You’d think so many dietary habits of the world’s cuisines are so heavily carb based that it’d be an obvious starting point, but I do thinking  any attempts at delinking obesity and diabetes are worthwhile.
