A study that will certainly generate controversy in the low-carb blogosphere, but the findings are hard to dispute. Namely, feeding a diet for 15 weeks, in which 74.3% of the calories come from carbs in the form of starch was clearly obesogenic, caused insulin resistance and elevated blood glucose, triglycerides, and free fatty acids (FFA). … Read more

Stress (cortisol) as the driver of hyperglycemia in type II diabetes

Statins more than double the risk of diabetes compared to non-users

So, we can now add diabetes to the list of cancer, ALS, dementia, birth defects, osteoporosis, infertility, premature aging, mental health orders, … Read more
