Cases of type 2 diabetes rise by 90%

Supports Chapter 19: ‘Healthy eating’ is fattening, and Chapter 20: Diabetes deceit

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have revealed that the number of cases of type 2 diabetes in the US almost doubled within just ten years, from 4.8 people per 1,000 in 1995 -1997 to 9.1 people per thousand in 2005 - 2007.

But this may be a massive underestimation because many people are unaware that they have diabetes until one or more complications rears its ugly head.

The CDC puts the blame for this dramatic rise in type-2 diabetes on the epidemic. They say that type-2 diabetes: "can be prevented or delayed by moderate weight loss and increased physical activity."

This may be right; however, it’s too much carbohydrate in the diet that causes diabetes, just as it causes obesity. That’s things like 6 to 11 portions of starchy foods and five portions of fruit and veg. I wonder how the people who trot out this unhealthy advice will defend themselves when the s**t hits the fan and Trick and Treat gives those harmed by this unhealthy advice the ammunition they need to sue them.
