It is well known that faulty diet and poor childhood nutrition are major factors contributing to the swelling number of diabetics in the world, but according to a study published in the German journal Environmental Health Prospect, pollution may also play a part in the spread of Type 2 diabetes.

Speaking to journalists at SL Raheja Hospital, senior diabetologist and secretary of the scientific section of the Diabetics Association of India, Dr Anil Bhoraskar said that in the German study, data from 1,775 women was analysed over a 20-year period and the primary reason for Type 2 diabetes was ascribed to pollution and rapid urbanisation. He said, “Excessive pollution creates oxidative stress by generating free radicals in the body which could potentially damage the pancreas and the endocrine system.”

Dr Bhoraskar added that this might explain the rapid rise in the number of diabetics in India. According to the International Diabetic Federation (IDF), there are 71.4 million diabetics in South-east Asia as of 2011, and 61.4 million of them are Indians. The rather alarming prognosis made by the study is that the number of diabetics in South-east Asia is expected to rise to a stunning 120.9 million by the year 2030.

According to Dr Bhoraskar, the consumption of good dietary fats found in homemade butter, ghee, coconut oil and fish is one significant way to counter the threat of diabetes. He also blames Vitamin D deficiency for the rise in the number of Type 1 diabetes patients. “Indians are prone to Vitamin D deficiency because of the lack of time spent out in the sun. Also, most Indians have heavily pigmented skin which reduces the ability of the body to absorb sunlight,” said Bhoraskar.

Woman Battles Brain Cancer Using Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet Without Chemo

Alix Hayden has brain cancer, but instead of undergoing surgery and grueling chemotherapy, she’s fighting it with the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet and has been doing great so far.

Some of the most exciting research to come out in the past few years regarding the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet has been in the area of cancer treatment. The results are so promising that new “ketone” drugs are in the pipeline.

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb, and moderate-protein diet that was first developed in the 1920s at John Hopkins hospital to treat epilepsy. Some children with seizures saw great success on the diet, often where drugs had failed.

Today, the ketogenic diet principles, particularly using coconut oil as the main fat, are being used to treat neurological diseases such as Alzhemier’s, as well as successfully treating cancer.

What Type of Coconut Oil is Best? How to Choose a Coconut Oil

What Type of Coconut Oil is Best? How to Choose a Coconut Oil

When my wife and I shipped the first “virgin coconut oil” from the Philippines into the U.S. back in 2001, there were only two other commercially available coconut oils being sold as edible oils in the U.S. market. Coconut oil was certainly not popular 13 years ago and there were few choices. If you were using coconut oil as dietary oil back then, chances are you were getting your information about fats and oils from Dr. Mary Enig. Many of her writings have been featured in the Weston A. Price Foundation over the years.

Today at the beginning of 2014, one has a plethora of choices when it comes to purchasing coconut oil. So what I am going to do in this article is give you an insider view of the current market, without mentioning any specific brands. Not all coconut oils are produced the same way and the type of coconut oil you purchase will depend on what you plan to do with it.

But first, in order to make an intelligent decision about which coconut oil best suits your needs, you need to understand what is currently in the market, and how they differ.
