Chronic diseases are preventable and reversible. Heart disease, cancer, stroke, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney, eye and progressive neurologic disorders, etc., tax our health care system and economy, and cause great personal suffering, are preventable and sometimes reversible. Diabetes is a chronic disease that is in epidemic proportions in the U.S. and world-wide, and is mostly preventable, and in many cases reversible. I am here to show you this epidemic need not exist.

There are successfully aging cultures from around the world that have minimal diabetes (Okinawan elders, Sardinians, Nicoyans, Hunzans, Tarahumara Indians, etc.). Traditional living Asian and African cultures before modern day urbanization didn’t get diabetes eating their more agrarian, starch and plant-based diets. Type II diabetes (adult onset) becomes dramatically more prevalent in all ethnicities within a generation of their immigration to U.S.. Reversible causes? Excess calories from high fat, high sugar, highly refined carbohydrate diets and increased animal food consumption, environmental toxic exposure, altered bowel flora, vitamin D deficiency (type 1) and early cow’s milk exposure (type 1). ….and sedentary lifestyles! But There Is Good News!...The solution is simple, safe and very cheap!

Insulin from beta cells in the pancreas drives sugar (glucose) into the cell to produce energy. Lack of insulin or insulin resistance increases blood sugar.   . When sugar can’t get into the cell high blood sugar (glucose) occurs – diabetes.  All cells need sugar (glucose) for energy.

Associated with obesity. Can lead to type 2 diabetes after pregnancy. Genetic predisposition. Usually occurs in children.    . Causes: autoimmune reaction. vitamin D deficiency. Body fails to produce insulin. Results from the body not using insulin properly (insulin resistance). infection. Type 1 diabetes 5-10 % of diabetics. Pre-diabetes Pre-diabetes: blood sugar higher than normal (fasting 100-125) but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. creating insulin resistance. gut micro-flora imbalance and a sedentary lifestyle. Type 2 diabetes 90-95% of diabetics. eyes & nerves. Still can have adverse health effects on blood vessels. environmental toxicity. kidneys. Placental hormones inhibit insulin’s actions. early cow’s milk exposure. the hormone that allows glucose to enter and fuel your cells. Gestational diabetes 4% of pregnant females develop gestational diabetes. Occurs more frequently with aging.

OBJECTIVE: The objective was to determine the relative contributions of increased energy intake and reduced physical activity to the US obesity epidemic. 2009 Dec. A reversal of the increase in energy intake of approximately 2000 kJ/d (500 kcal/d) for adults and of 1500 kJ/d (350 kcal/d) for children would be needed for a reversal to the mean body weights of the 1970s. CONCLUSIONS: Increased energy intake appears to be more than sufficient to explain weight gain in the US population. For adults. . the measured weight gain was 4. or a combination of both.

Eat Unrefined, Complex Carbohydrates – whole or sprouted grains, beans, starchy root vegetables in general have a lower glycemic index….They are good for diabetics! High carbohydrate fiber-rich foods have a slow blood sugar absorption reducing stress on the pancreas (gland that produces insulin). High fiber –carbohydrate rich foods have more volume and less calories encouraging weight loss which improves insulin’s actions. High fiber-carbohydrate rich foods are low in fat, reducing fat in the cell which improves insulin’s action. If the grain product is “enriched” it has the fiber and the germ removed losing vitamins, minerals, good fats and a higher glycemic state. Avoid the “whites” – white flour, white potatoes, white bread, white rice, etc.

The positive influence that physical activity has on health has been well established. Among adults, regular physical activity has been associated with a reduced risk of stroke, impaired glucose tolerance, type 2 diabetes, mortality, and cardiovascular disease incident events. Engaging in physical activity daily has also proven to be helpful in both losing weight and maintaining weight loss…(2000 and 2005 National Health Interview Surveys).

DESIGN: We predicted the changes in weight from the changes in estimated energy intakes in US children and adults between the 1970s and 2000s. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to determine the relative contributions of increased energy intake and reduced physical activity to the US obesity epidemic.    Increased food energy supply is more than sufficient to explain the US epidemic of obesity. CONCLUSIONS: Increased energy intake appears to be more than sufficient to explain weight gain in the US population. the measured weight gain was 4. For adults. Alternatively.90(6):1453-6. BACKGROUND: The major drivers of the obesity epidemic are much debated and have considerable policy importance for the population-wide prevention of obesity. and the predicted weight gain for the increased energy intake was identical at 4.Pubmed_Results Note: A reduction of 500 kcal/d = 1 lb of fat calorie per week. large compensatory increases in physical activity (eg.

A reversal of the increase in energy intake of approximately 2000 kJ/d (500 kcal/d) for adults and of 1500 kJ/d (350 kcal/d) for children would be needed for a reversal to the mean body weights of the 1970s.
