Diabetes: We Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet!

Filed under: Health — @ May 28, 2006

If you think diabetes has gotten bad now, just wait until you see what happens in 10-20 years from now if we continue down the same path we are on now.

Dr. Catherine C. Cowie from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) conducted a study of statistical comparisons regarding the prevalence of diabetes in the United States and found that currently there are 73 million Americans who are either diabetic or pre-diabetic — THAT’S ONE IN THREE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW!!!

The saddest part of this is that diabetes is the fifth highest killer in our country despite the fact that it is completely preventable through changes in diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits.

bq. The bottom line in all of this is the very clear message that WE CAN TURN THE TIDE ON DIABETES. It IS possible and it CAN be done if people become receptive to such lifestyle changes as giving up sugar, white flour and processed foods in favor of more nutrient-rich and delicious foods that will satisfy the desire for taste and nourishment while at the same time controlling blood glucose levels and reducing body fat. That’s what livin’ la vida low-carb can do for the one in three of you who suffer from either diabetes or pre-diabetes.
