Comment of the Week
“Mark is 100% correct.
I’m a doctor and I can assure anyone who might be concerned:
Acquired diabetes (as opposed to being born with Type 1 diabetes), does NOT happen secretly or suddenly like cancer might. (Cancer of the pancreas – the insulin producing organ, might suddenly cause diabetes, but that is cancer).
Acquired type 2 diabetes is very definitely something one can look at day by day and know if one is heading towards it or away from it.
Weight loss, lowered blood sugar levels, lower triglycerides, better exercise tolerance and fitness, are all easy, everyday indications that one is reducing the chances of diabetes, not increasing it.
A glucometer purchased cheaply at a drugstore can give great everyday data re our blood sugar response to food and meals, if it’s a real concern. (Just be sure to read about the normals and parameters so the results can be interpreted correctly).
If one is heading towards diabetes, as evidenced by higher blood sugars, significant weight gain, higher triglycerides, etc, then stopping all red meat is NOT going to help that situation.
Increasing exercise, eliminating all sweeteners and simple carbs, and decreasing caloric intake, WILL improve one’s situation and reverse the trend. It really is that simple for acquired type 2 diabetes.
It is a travesty the way the “survey” studies are taken and discussed the same as real, original, double blind experiments with actual measurements and data.
The problem is the average person doesn’t know the difference and can’t really be expected to sit down and learn that while raising a family and working two jobs.
I would expect more of journalists though, because it’s their job and responsibility to report accurately.
It’s so irresponsible what they are doing here.
And I suspect the vegan mega-industries know that and are taking full advantage. I wouldn’t put it past them to even be paying journalists to report the way they do.
These corporations can’t wait to eliminate real meat and take the markets and profits from substituting fake, manufactured, chemical-filled, proteins.
