Eat real food, not carbs

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

Ever hear the one about the med­i­cal pro­fes­sional who pro­claimed that 80 per­cent of what med­i­cal doc­tors do is not backed by dou­ble-blind, ran­dom­ized, con­trolled tri­als? Un­for­tu­nately, it’s no joke. For the unini­ti­ated, these tri­als are the best way to demon­strate cause and ef­fect. The im­pli­ca­tion: Med­i­cal quack­ery is alive and well in your doc­tor’s of­fice. Med­i­cal mis­takes are the third lead­ing cause of death.

Com­bine the cur­rent state of medicine and a food en­vi­ron­ment to which the vast ma­jor­ity of peo­ple have not ge­net­i­cally adapted, and you are well on your way to mass ex­tinc­tion (“Type 2 diabetes rates in­creas­ing among young peo­ple, mi­nori­ties,” Web, April 17). Type 2 diabetes was un­der con­trol a cen­tury ago. The cure was sim­ple: Stop eat­ing sug­ars and starches and stick to eat­ing real food.

Type 1 diabetes led to an early death a cen­tury ago. To­day, if you ad­here to the med­i­cal ad­vice com­ing from the Amer­i­can Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion and the Amer­i­can Den­tal As­so­ci­a­tion, you may also end up dy­ing early. Both of these or­ga­ni­za­tions ad­vo­cate a “stan­dard of care” con­sist­ing of a high-car­bo­hy­drate diet. Why? In or­der to main­tain mar­ket share in the food in­dus­try.

Ba­si­cally your health and your child’s health comes down to you. Start com­par­ing notes with other peo­ple just like you all over the world who have man­aged to rid them­selves of type 2 diabetes and man­aged to con­trol type 1 diabetes. That is your only hope.
