“Conservative Management of Diabetes”

Learn about diabetes! It is one of the most prominent chronic diseases in the Western world today.

“A major problem for diabetics and non-diabetics as well, is excess fat and oil in the diet. Fat and oil decrease the body’s sensitivity to insulin, allowing the blood sugar levels to rise dangerously. In one study, Dr. S. Sweeney fed young, healthy medical students a very high fat diet for two days and then gave them a glucose tolerance test. Virtually all of the students showed blood sugar levels high enough to classify them as diabetic. Some were quite severe. All of the students’ blood sugar levels returned to normal when placed on a low fat diet.”

Wow.

Added fats (including oils) is a huge problem for Americans. Added fats and oils use has increased on average 67% in 2000 compared to 1950. No wonder we have a problem!
