Type 1 Diabetes – NEW CAUSES OF DIABETES:
Canadian and Finnish researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine (1992) that children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes had antibodies for cow’s milk protein. This milk protein mimicked human insulin-producing cells. Researchers learned that when the body’s immune system arose to attack the milk protein in infant’s blood it also attacked the body’s insulin producing cells. When the insulin producing cells are destroyed the result is type 1 diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes – THE LATEST RESEARCH:
Neal. D. Barnard, MD and other researchers reported in the American Journal of Medicine (2005) that animal fats and commonly used cooking oils can block insulin uptake. Dr. Barnard’s research shows that dietary intervention may be more effective than medications in controlling and in some cases reversing type 2 diabetes.
If we now know the likely cause of diabetes, we also know how to prevent it. See the movie “Forks Over Knives” or rent or buy the video to learn more.
