Diabetes rates in India lower with Ghee and Coconut Oil in traditional diets

Excerpts:

Ghee is the raw material at the heart of every authentic Indian curry and a holy offering revered in Hindu weddings.

The managing director of the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation, which owns India’s No1 ghee brand, Amul, said that the relaunch aimed to shift perceptions of the product. He wanted the traditional cooking fat made from clarified butter to be seen not as an unhealthy offering used to excess by mainly older Indians but as a fashionable food for a new, younger, health-conscious generation.

“Incorrect and incomplete information has created false myths that ghee is not good for their health or the figure,” said Shri RS Sodha said. “The goal is to completely revamp and revolutionise the image of ghee.”

Manisha Tam blames a shift away from traditional Indian cooking fats for the soaring rates of diabetes in India. “In the past 20 years the medical recommendations have been to cut down on fatty ghee, so now Indians are switching to refined seed oils and corn oil,” Dr Tam said.

“But when they were using traditional fats like ghee and coconut oil, the rate of diabetes was much lower than it is today. The incidence of diabetes is still much lower in rural areas where people still eat a lot of ghee and a more balanced diet than in the cities.”

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Soda consumption is now in “freefall,” having dropped to its lowest point since 1995, with diet sodas taking the greatest hit.

One of the largest studies of its kind found that drinking just two diet drinks a day can increase your risk of an early death from heart disease by 50 percent. Previous research looking at aspartame toxicity also found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia.

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

In 1950, the number of starving individuals on Earth was estimated to be around 700 million; 100 million people, primarily in rich countries, were obese. By 2010, the world’s hungry had marginally grown to 800 million, while the number of obese citizens of the world had exploded to 500 million. Estimates suggest that by 2030, more than one billion people, worldwide, will fall into the obese category.

Sheriffs Lead Militia to Stand Up for Rancher in Nevada Being Attacked by Federal Agents

Sheriffs Lead Militia to Stand Up for Rancher in Nevada Being Attacked by Federal Agents

As the standoff between Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and federal agents with the Bureau of Land Management gains national attention, due mainly to the alternative media, constitutional sheriffs from around the U.S., led by Sheriff Richard Mack, are leading a militia force to intervene in Nevada.

In what appears to be a full military assault by the federal government on Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy over property rights, the governor of Nevada has publicly condemned the assault on its citizens but has taken no action. Federal agents have reportedly already seized and possibly destroyed some of Bundy’s cattle herd. Watch the report below from NextNewsNetwork with interviews from local residents discussing what they believe the real issues are in this heavy-handed government seizure of family farm land:

Fort Hood Shooting: Investigating Psychiatric Drugs & Violence Connection is Long Overdue

Fort Hood Shooting: Investigating Psychiatric Drugs & Violence Connection is Long Overdue

Thirty-seven percent of recent war veterans are being diagnosed with PTSD and 80 percent are of those are prescribed a psychiatric drug. The Veterans Administration’s mental health budget has soared from less than $3 billion in 2007 to nearly $7 billion in 2014. From 2005 to 2011, the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration increased their prescriptions of psychiatric drugs by nearly seven times. That’s more than thirty times faster than the civilian rate.

Violence and psychiatric drugs is a deadly formula America is becoming too intimately familiar with. Rather than continually send heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, it is time for lawmakers to investigate the connection between prescription psychiatric drugs and violence.

New Cholesterol Guidelines May Put 13 Million More on Statin Drugs

New Cholesterol Guidelines May Put 13 Million More on Statin Drugs

Controversial revised cholesterol-treatment guidelines loosened the definition of who would qualify for statin drug treatment to prevent heart disease, greatly increasing the number of people who would be eligible for treatment. Compared with the older guidelines, the new recommendations would increase the number of US adults eligible for statin therapy from 43.2 million to 56 million, with most of the increase occurring among adults without heart disease.

Perhaps the biggest “sham” of all is that statin drugs, touted as “preventive medicine” to protect your heart health, can actually have detrimental effects on your heart.
