HealthBlogger is dedicated to bringing you information that can dramatically improve your life and that has real science behind the data. This is the case this week.
Below I have included video lectures and blogs that bring proof of what the real cause of Type 2 diabetes is.
Modern medicine has taught that type 2 diabetes is genetic and cannot be cured. That is not true. What is true is that sugary foods and drinks TURN ON BAD GENES, this is the science of Epigenetics, but they can also be TURNED OFF.
Gene expression, as it is applied in nutrition, is now called Nutrigenomics.
The inclusion of high fructose corn syrup into all food stuffs, as well as a diet too high in sugar, high glycemic breads, cereals, cakes, cookies, and pastries with their lack of fiber, are the real culprits.
We need to go back to the diet we ate for millions of years as hunter gatherers, to TURN OFF THE FAT GENES.
If you want to lose weight and lower your blood sugar levels, which is the biggest factor in premature aging, I have recommended resources in previous blogs and in my weight loss program that really work.

Forever Changes Weight-Loss and Longevity Lifestyle Program Developed by Christopher Wiechert, C.N.C.
Do you remember this study from a previous HealthBlogger?
Mice were given water, water with sugar, or water with fructose. All the mice began the study at an average weight of 39 grams. Those consuming the fructose-sweetened water showed significant weight gain over the course of the study, with an average final weight of 48 grams—compared with averages below 44 grams for the other groups—and had about 90 percent more body fat than the mice that consumed water only. Total caloric intake was lower in the mice that consumed the fructose-sweetened water than in the other groups, except for the control animals provided with water only.
“We were surprised to see that mice actually ate less when exposed to fructose-sweetened beverages, and therefore didn’t consume more overall calories,” said Dr. Tschöp. “Nevertheless, they gained significantly more body fat within a few weeks.”
Do you need more proof? I think so, or you would have changed your habits by now.
I think many of you need more convincing beyond my opinions. Please review this week's blog. I promise you it will make my point.

Latest Diabetes Figures Paint Grim Global Picture...
The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has released new data showing that a staggering 285 million people worldwide have diabetes. The latest figures from the IDF Diabetes Atlas indicate that people in low and middle-income countries (LMCs) are bearing the brunt of the epidemic, and that the disease is affecting far more people of working age than previously believed.
In 1985, the best data available suggested that 30 million people had diabetes worldwide. Fast-forward 15 years and the numbers were revised to just over 150 million. Today, less than 10 years on, the new figures -- launched at the 20th World Diabetes Congress in Montreal, Canada -- put the number closer to 300 million, with more than half aged between 20 and 60. IDF predicts that, if the current rate of growth continues unchecked, the total number will exceed 435 million in 2030 -- many more people than the current population of North America.
The Bitter Truth About Sugar...Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.

Do you give your baby infant formula? Like Similac Isomil?
First Ingredient: 43.2% Corn syrup solids
4th ingredient: 10.3% Sugar (sucrose)
That's over 50% sugar - No wonder infants 6 months old are often over weight.
