Flavonoids In Tea, Chocolate and Berries Can Prevent Diabetes Flavonoids In Tea, Chocolate and Berries Can Prevent Diabetes

Strong evidence from several studies have shown that individuals consuming fruits and vegetables rich in different flavonoids have a reduced risk of overall mortality and of several chronic diseases. According to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and King’s College London, eating high levels of flavonoids including anthocyanins and other compounds (found in berries, tea, and chocolate) may prevent type 2 diabetes, a disease whose initial stages is now affecting almost 40 percent of Americans age 20 and older.

New Research Continues to Show Alzheimer’s is a Type 3 Diabetes New Research Continues to Show Alzheimer’s is a Type 3 Diabetes

A recent study done at Rhode Island Hospital continues to confirm that Alzheimer’s Disease has a strong link to brain insulin resistance, or type 3 diabetes. Since the National Institute of Health financed the study, we can probably expect people with Alzheimer’s to now be prescribed even more drugs, the same drugs that are prescribed for type 2 diabetes.

Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical companies have a terrible track record when it comes to diabetes drugs. The drug Actos, a drug that France and Germany pulled from the market a year ago after it was found to cause bladder cancer and tumors in people using it for type 2 diabetes, is a drug still found in the market in the United States. Since the FDA has not pulled it off of the market in the US, hundreds of lawsuits have been filed, including one from a whistle blower claiming the manufacturer “is benefiting in tens of billions of dollars in sales at the expense of the lives of people still taking the drug.” Another diabetes drug, Avandia, was removed from pharmacies because it led to increased heart attacks killing thousands of people. (Although the FDA has just cleared Avandia to be sold again, even though it is banned in Europe.)

Today’s senior citizens living in managed care facilities are taking an average of over 30 different prescription drugs! The one class of drug that is prescribed the most, statin drugs to lower cholesterol, is linked to increasing the incidence of Alzheimer’s by starving the brain of needed cholesterol. Another side effect of statin drugs is: diabetes! One out of every four Americans over the age of 55 is currently taking statin drugs.

Given all the evidence regarding insulin resistance, diabetes, and the link to Alzheimer’s, it is not surprising that people are reporting incredible benefits in helping or even reserving Alzheimer’s from consuming coconut oil.

Virgin Coconut Oil Effective in Treating Diabetes Virgin Coconut Oil Effective in Treating Diabetes

The current rate of people becoming diabetic in the United states is doubling every 10 years. This has resulted in a windfall for pharmaceutical companies capitalizing on this “disease” with drugs designed to treat type 2 diabetes, but not deal with the underlying cause. These drugs have serious side effects.

Information that is finally making its way into the mainstream media is that type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle and diet issue that can be reversed without drugs. This information has been known for years among those in the alternative health crowd.
