700 people per day in Great Britain are being diagnosed with diabetes, according to the latest newspaper article Daily Express 15th February 2016. That is one person every two minutes. Over the last 20 years since 1996, diabetes in Great Britain has doubled, mainly for the reason that people are getting fat. It is the fastest growing health threat of our time, with more than three and a half million people in Great Britain now diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes, according to the leading diabetes charity Diabetes UK.
However, just because you may not have insulin-dependent diabetes does not mean that all is well and good. Being insulin-dependent is actually the interim stage of your troubles whereby you have worn out your pancreas by hitting it over the head through eating grains, animal products, starches and carbohydrates.
But before your pancreas gets worn out you experience elevated blood sugar levels. Elevated blood sugar levels is the enemy of your health and this is what you experience each time you consume starches and carbohydrates, be they refined, simple or complex. It is only a matter of time before these starches and carbohydrates are converted into simple sugars known as glucose in your blood. When this happens you will get fat. Studies show that being overweight will shorten your lifespan on average between six and a half years to eight years (depending on which study you read) compared to your leaner, slimmer peers. Additionally, overweight people do not die of anything exciting. They die of the same old boring diseases such as accelerated Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke and hypertension.
Not only do you get fat, if you watched the BBC’s Horizon programme on Skin ageing by consultant surgeon to the NHS Dr Rosina Ali aired in 2013, she showed that people with elevated blood sugar levels also increased their rate of skin wrinkling. Elevated blood sugar is also a great way to go blind because it rots your eyeballs and this is the number one cause of irreversible blindness, glaucoma and cataracts. We also know that excess sugar rots your teeth and gives you gum disease. Gum disease, or gingivitis as it is more correctly termed, is what happens when you brush your teeth and they start bleeding.
If you watch the Morgan Spurlock movie: Supersize Me, you will find that he was able to screw up his liver and almost die of liver failure within three weeks simply by eating animal products, simple sugars, refined starches and carbohydrates. This is liver failure and fatty sclerotic liver which is normally associated with an alcoholic, but Morgan Spurlock showed that you can achieve this just by eating the wrong diet.
One of the ways in which hospitals establish the size and location of a cancer is by giving cancer patients a special sugary drink which contains a tagging ingredient which gets sucked up by the cancer cells. By imaging this, doctors can see the size and location of the cancer cells based on how much sugar they have sucked up. Professor Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize back in the 1931 for showing that cancer is largely fed by sugar. So it is probably a good idea to reduce your sugar, starch and carbohydrate consumption now.
The number one neurological decline that happens to people is Alzheimer’s disease. What we know through surveys is that Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease strike the most fear in the average individual. Yet for every one person that gets Parkinson’s, two people get Alzheimer’s. If you read the article in New Scientist magazine, 1 September 2012 edition, called Food For Thought: What You Eat May Be Killing Your Brain you will find that scientists are now calling elevated blood sugar levels Type III diabetes because this is Alzheimer’s disease. I simply cal it ‘brain rotting’.
So all these problems occur along the way regardless of whether or not you actually become insulin-dependent diabetic.
There is another story which came out about what happens at the end state of rotting. On 15 July 2015, the Daily Mirror’s front page article was that 135 people each week in Great Britain have an arm or a leg surgically ripped out from their socket in a hospital and discarded because it has rotted away. There are endless problems associated with being on the wrong foods and how this translates into increased blood sugar levels. This is known as fasting blood glucose if you want to measure this with your doctor. This is all caused by eating animal products, starches and carbohydrates. It doesn’t matter if they are organic or not, refined or complex, it all turns into glucose in your blood after some time.
If you want to have an idea whether you are suffering from excess sugar consumption, one of the easiest ways to tell (apart from doing a blood sugar test) is to look in the mirror and see whether you are hanging on to excess body fat. Excess body fat is almost solely associated with excess sugar consumption. In fact the scientific phrase for this condition is ‘diabesity’. This is where someone has consumed so much sugar that not only are they fat but they have diabetes at the same time.
In the case of people who have been diagnosed with insulin-dependency, it is erroneously thought that all they need to do is get off the starches and sugars. I have students like this who get off the starches and sugars but continue to consume animal products and have to continue injecting themselves with insulin. However, if they get off the animal flesh as well as I recommend, they no longer need to inject themselves with insulin. One thing we know for sure is that animal food blunts your insulin response. It blunts the ability of your to get your blood sugars under control. Although chicken, pig or cow meat does not contain any sugars or starches or carbohydrates, it has the same effect of making you an insulin-dependent Type II diabetic.
The wrong foods are always the starches, carbohydrates, organic or not, refined or complex and grass-seed/grains be they wheat, rice, spelt, barley, millet, buckwheat, etc. If you want to know just how detrimental grass-seed is for the human body, you might want to read the excellent book called Wheat Belly by Dr William Davies which will give you a good idea about what grains/grass-seed is actually doing to your body.
I recommend a plant-based diet with a little bit of seafood which turns around all these health problems I have listed in this article. If people have become Type II insulin-dependent diabetics, they can quite simply reverse the situation by reversing the cause. Once you change what is causing the problem you change the effect. You can change this permanently by changing your diet. I call this ‘getting off the tragic and getting on the magic’.
