Check out this story from Fox News (thanks for the pointout Meegs).  Summary: Type II Diabetes Rates have doubled since 1970.  Note the following 2 quotes separated by only a paragraph:

“Type 2 diabetes is more common than type 1 diabetes. In both types of diabetes, the body has trouble controlling blood sugar due to problems with insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar.”

“The cause of the increase in diabetes incidence is likely related to changes in obesity and lifestyle,” write Fox and colleagues. “Obesity and weight gain are the leading risk factors for the development of diabetes.”

How can we be missing this?  In a pharmaceutically driven health care industry, we’d rather coddle people through and give them drugs to treat symptoms than open our eyes to what we already know is the true root of the problem.  Diabetes is not caused by obesity.  Diabetes is a symptom of a greater ill:  metabolic derangement–chronic insulin resistance (hyperinsulinemia) brought on by too much sugar (read refined carbohydrates).  Obesity is a symptom of hyperinsulinemia (remember Syndrome X and the “deadly quartet”) but it’s not the cause of diabetes.  Too much sugar=hyperinsulinemia = Diabetes (and more)…a public miseducated and killing itself.

LIVE STRONG (and control insulin)!!!
