For the life of me I do not understand how you can blame fat for diabetes? This is straight from Wikipedia:
"Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced."
Even if you know nothing about how he body works, this simple definition screams sugar causing disease! But the crazy thing is most of the so called experts who are apparently educated about how the body works still want to blame fat. Recently Paula Dean announced she has diabetes, big surprise, and now the media is saying its due to her famously using copious amounts of butter in her recipes. Of course it couldn't possibly be the sugar an flor she is adding the butter too!! During her announcement her sons made a lowfat lasagna with only 250 calories per slice.....the so called experts cheered on the efforts as if the lowfat would help a diabetic but the insulin response from the mainly carbohydrate meal would have no effect.
It's always a picture of the cheeseburger, meatball sub, pizza, or French fries that are shown as causation for diabetes and bad health, but it's burger, meatball, pizza and oil tht is vilified instead of the empty carbs that create an insulin response and induce a negative immune response in the gut.
How can something like diabetes, that has a cause so obvious, be so misunderstood and the misunderstanding be excepted?
