Diabetes – The Number One Killer in America
There are currently about 21 million Americans who are suffering from diabetes, and there are another 41 million Americans who do not even know they have diabetes. That's roughly 62,000,000 people altogether, but some could argue that there are close to 200 million people in America who have diabetes.
From a biochemical perspective, when you look at diabetes from the cellular level, it's basically a disease of insulin resistance, micro infection, and excess oxidation – which are also the undering mechanisms that ironically fuel heart disease, cancer, stroke, arthritis, osteoporosis, kidney failure, etc.
The number one killer in America is heart disease. The next one after that is stroke. After that is cancer; and the fourth is diabetes. And if you look at the other complications stemming from diabetes such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue, etc., you'll find that they're all related – they're all connected to the same disease.
Is it a coincidence that these diseases I just mentioned also happened to be fueled exclusively from diabetes? No I do not think so. So if you look at the numbers more closely, you could argue that diabetes is actually the number one killer in America.
Another thing that you probably have not been told, is that diabetes can actually be reversed through proper diet and exercise. The reason why your doctor has not told you about this is just simple:
Medical doctors are not trained for holistic medicine.
A medical doctor is trained to do one of two things:
1. Prescribe medicine / treat symptoms
2.) And perform surgery.
It is not his job to see to it that his patients become well, for he would put out of business the people who pay him.
If you go back to eighth grade, in biology class, you will remember that your body is made up of cells which are made up of four things: water, fat, protein, carbohydrates. And when your body is happy, when the cells are happy, you're happy! But when these cells get sick, you get sick, and you fall into a cycle of disease. So would not it make sense that in order for these cells to recover that you give them what they require?
