Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods.
He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.
Just one vital facet. More is needed. Take a look at the principles of Weston A. Price that were found in ALL healthy peoples all over the world with varying diets. Eskimos ate mostly meat. Polynesians ate mostly veges. But they ALL shared common principles that accounted for their extreme level of health and longevity. Fat was highly regarded by them all, thus, one of the vital principles of the traditional diets of our forefathers.
As an awareness of the Syndrome X phenomenon of insulin resistance spread, researchers and clinicians have begun to understand that many of us who are not diabetic still experience insulin resistance. Responsible scientists began to ask questions about what causes it. The discoveries they are now making are nothing short of revolutionary. They not only offer us the power to slow the rate at which our bodies age. They are experimenting with protocols that can, potentially reverse negative conditions from hypertension, insulin resistance to cholesterol imbalances and depression, simply by changing the way you eat and live.
