I have just written this post as an answer in another thread, My wife is bending my ear saying that more people should read it, so I will place it here, if you are in agreement, please copy and paste it to everyone that you can think of including friends, family, the media, and perhaps even your MP. There is something very wrong with this picture! I have become ill like many more millions around the world, yet the root cause appears to be lifestyle and environment, in particular the food we eat. Whilst researching the low carb high fat diet, I was surprised to see that 100 years ago, this diet was the standard treatment for epilepsy Alzheimer's and a multitude of other afflictions. So why have the government and health experts not been shouting this from the rooftops, To understand this we must ask "who benefits from millions of people dying from these afflictions," I will start the list, 1. corporations who mass produce cheap processed food often filled with additives like Monosodium Glutamate, aspartame , high fructose corn syrup etc in order to make the rank taste good, for example chicken nuggets and hot dog sausages made from mechanically recovered meat. 2. The farmers that have moved away from rotational farming to intensive farming where now generally only three elements are added rather than the 80+ pre 1940's the government know about this, they commissioned a white paper from professor David Thomas that told them so, incidentally he also told them that the depletion of minerals and elements such as lithium would increase the incidence of mental health issues. this is one of many links out there https://www.nutraingredients.com/Article/2006/02/14/Remineralisation-vital-for-future-of-food 3, the pharmaceutical companies that make huge profits pushing drugs like gliclizide on us, which only compounds our health issues, or 4 the government for not doing more to help we the people, possibly because many of them have shares in one of the previous 3. I could continue, but I will let you think about who else stands to gain from millions of people getting ill. Any suggestions? Within just 8 days I am witnessing the benefits of a low carbohydrate high fat diet, I am losing weight, I am rarely hungry, and my Blood glucose (BG) is dropping. My energy is slowly returning and the fog in my head is beginning to clear. So how come I have had diabetes for 14 years and have never heard of the benefits of this diet by my health professionals, I have not seen any public health films about it, no advertisements or documentaries on the television, I learn't it here on the forum of www.diabetes.co.uk . How many millions of people with diabetes, autism, epilepsy dementia etc are living in blind ignorance of this diet. And how do those of us that know, take on the might of corporations and governments in order to tell the world what the solution could be. Personally I would not have a clue where to start. I do know that people are dying from antibiotic resistance whilst pharmaceutical companies drive up the price of the few products left that can help, in the full knowledge that there is a branch of medicine dealing with phages that kill infections at the source, just google "Georgia phage" and see what info is out there, here is a link to start you off https://www.phagetherapycenter.com/pii/PatientServlet?command=static_home. or you could search wikipedia for the background information. But the corporations will not make the same money. So it is kept quiet, phages kill infections like mrsa, but people suffer and die in ignorance. My emotions are mixed, do I feel angry that I along with others have been left for years in ignorance, you bet I do, do I feel helpless and unable to do anything about it...yes most certainly. Do I feel sad that there are people who knowingly profit from keeping people in ignorance, of course.what next? I don't have a clue. I do know that alcoholics will continue to drink, smokers will continue to smoke, but at least they have the benefit of information. They continue their habits in the full knowledge of the consequences to them and their loved ones. But the diabetic, the person with epilepsy, autism or dementia is not afforded the luxury indeed the right of having the correct information laid before them. I am not asking for chicken nuggets to be banned, nor pasta, bread, hot dog sausages etc all I want is honesty and directness, I want the public to be honestly informed in all media so that they can make the right choices to protect themselves, their family, even generations not yet born etc. But how can I make this happen, my son has witnessed my improvement, my son and his wife are now of their own volition on a low carbohydrate/ high fat diet. So that is a start. Can I get the message out to millions, I do not think that I have a chance! Am I crazy or do I have a point? Where does it go from here.......... probably not that far. What do you think!
