Many diabetics are seeing their condition improved or completely reversed through a low carbohydrate diet, but the American Diabetes Association doesn’t want you to know that because they receive enormous sums of money from companies who profit on chronic illness. Imagine if Jack Daniels and Smirnoff were contributing “sponsors” of Alcoholics Anonymous—alcoholics would be advised to “manage” their condition by consuming “responsible” amounts of products sold by those companies. Article at Diabetes-Warrior.net A few excerpts from the linked article: Big Pharma ALONE paid the American Diabetes Association (ADA) OVER $31 million in 2012 [...] The ADA promotes a High Carb, Grain Based, Low Fat meal plan that causes MORE drug use and MORE INSULIN USE! Coincidence? ADA DONORS TOP DONORS Novo Nordisk, Sanofi and Eli Lilly all profit directly from a high carb meal plan … they are the three top insulin producers. The more the ADA promotes a meal plan featuring breads, cakes, cookies, pasta, rice, potatoes and cereals… the more those companies profit. And apparently the reason the donations went from $19 to $31 million in four years. Any one with a blood glucose meter KNOWS that breads, cakes, cookies, pasta, rice, potatoes and cereals raise blood sugar. All high carb foods raise blood sugar. Diabetes is disease of ‘high blood sugar’ or hyperglycemia. When blood sugar goes up, what must people do? Buy more insulin and diabetes drugs.
