Do you know someone who has type 2 diabetes?
Where do they get their nutritional advice?
Mainstream nutritional "wisdom"--which has brought us the obesity, diabetes, and heart disease epidemics--is still where at least 80 percent of people turn.
Conventional medicos (and dietitians) look to the nutritional research community--but diabetes research is increasingly conflicted.
There is an alarming cognitive dissonance reflected in current studies--real contradictions that could maintain the status quo of non-curative care--and population-wide dietary ignorance.
Many scientists agree, more or less, that high carbohydrate consumption (including sugar) drives or worsens type 2 diabetes. It is increasingly accepted as a "lifestyle" disease.
Despite this reluctant consensus, new recommendations for treating type 2 diabetes include everything BUT reducing carbohydrates by the simplest, least expensive option: CHANGING DIET.
Instead, researchers tiptoe around reducing carbs and endorse weight loss through surgery, drugs, or high-sugar crash diets that mimic surgery.
The newest, cutting edge idea? Indigestible paste to coat your intestines...
