If you’ve read the books by Dr. Jason Fung, The Obesity Code and The Diabetes Code, you may already know that it looks like there is a cure for Type 2 Diabetes. If more people are cured of Type 2 Diabetes that will markedly reduce the number of people dying from Heart Disease.
What’s the purported cure for Type 2 Diabetes? Fasting, intermittent or longer, and the Keto Diet. The two lifestyles, combined, increase insulin sensitivity and burns body fat. And the best part is that this way of living is the only diet program that actually makes you money. If you’re fasting you’re not eating. If you’re not eating you’re not spending money. Every other diet program in the world causes you to spend.
Consult with your doctor and give it a try. I don’t think you’ll ever turn back.
Heart disease was once on course to fall below cancer as the nation’s leading cause of death, a change public-health statisticians most recently predicted would occur by 2020. No longer, said Robert Anderson, chief of the CDC’s mortality statistics branch. “It’s highly unlikely given the current trend that there will be a crossover anytime soon,” he said.The Wall Street Journal $$
The obesity epidemic and related rise in the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes are key culprits in the new wave of cardiovascular disease mortality, researchers and cardiologists say. Studies have linked obesity and diabetes to high blood pressure and other conditions that increase the risk of heart attacks, strokes and heart failure.
“It’s a really major driver,” said Stephen Sidney, director of research clinics at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research, who has studied the changes in cardiovascular disease mortality rates. Obesity began rising across the U.S. population in the early 1980s, and Type 2 diabetes rates accelerated several years later. That has given both “enough time to really impact in a negative way on the population,” Dr. Sidney said.
