For untold years now we have been made aware of the fact that consuming inordinate amounts of certain unhealthy fats, sugar and salt is bad for our health. Many years back Dr. Steenblock along with many other leading lights in the world of alternative medicine asserted that dietary sugar intake was causing people to develop type 2 diabetes apart from any weight gain or obesity associated with sugar consumption. Skeptics and so-called quackbusters dismissed this as nonsense and insisted that sugar was the culprit in dental caries and perhaps weight gain and little else. Time was not kind to the naysayers as study after study has pointed to links between dietary sugar intake and various human ills. Now, in 2013, comes a very sweeping epidemiological study carried out by scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine, the University of California-Berkeley and the University of California-San Francisco, in which they rigorously looked at data on sugar availability and diabetes rates in 175 countries over the past ten years. After taking into account obesity and other factors, these researchers found unmistakable evidence that “increased sugar in a population’s food supply was linked to higher diabetes rates, independent of obesity rates” (This is from a lay write-up on the study which you can access at http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/02/130227183452.htm).
If you are wrestling with a chronic disease, perhaps you’ve wondered if something in your diet triggered it and/or is fueling its progression. You can search using Google or other search engines and probably wind up confused, mainly because experts and studies often seem at odds with each other. You will also have to contend with the same skeptics and naysayers who dismissed sugar intake as a direct contributor to diabetes (See above).
