I hope this video would help someone understand diabetes mellitus is preventable and manageable.

On January 25, 2009, I gave a presentation. The topic was "Diabetes Mellitus: Prevention and Management By Dieting." At the beginning of the presentation, I had four volunteers to take blood glucose tests for the baseline BG level. Then, each of them took one of four foods, including 25 grams table sugar in 8 ounces of water, a 8-ounce cup of skim milk, a cup of Cheerios (a serving) with 8 ounces of water, and a boiled egg with 8 ounces of water. They had blood glucose levels monitored for the… Continue
Hello, my name is Chad Veenhof. I was born in July 1988 in Kitchener, Ontario and have lived here all my life.
If you knew me you’d say I’m funny, friendly, caring, highly intelligent, healthy and energetic. I’m also a leader who’s not afraid to fight for what is right.
Although I wasn’t feeling well for a couple days, I took my girlfriend to a movie on June 22, 2009 to celebrate her birthday. During the movie I told her I wasn’t feeling well and I suffered my first and only… Continue
Mosquito problems?? If you have Hep C or liver damage from another source what you use to avoid the Mosquito can be dangerous! Namely: DEET - Deet is a commonly used chemical used in products to repel Mosquitos. Deet, like most CHEMICALS you touch or purposely apply to your body will be absorbed into your skin. Healthy or diseased, your liver must work to fully process the toxin to keep it from harming or invading your body in the form of another disease. There is an obvious hindrance to this… Continue
Let's start with an August 13, 2009 MedPage Today article, "Thrombosis Risk with OCs Depends on Progestogen", from which we get this concise summary of the issue from Nick Dunn, MD, of the University of Southampton:

In Defense of Goldfish
By Cristin Dillon-Jones
I am a registered dietitian and, yes, I eat Goldfish crackers. I eat them quite frequently, in fact. I also eat ice cream, pizza and French fries. What kind of a dietitian am I? I am a practical one because I know that eating the "perfect"… Continue
What do different types of Flu’s, West Nile Virus, and SARS all have in common?
Our bodies can shield us from them easier than you think!!!
Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council has written many articles emphasizing the importance of Vitamin D in the body for many applications. One of the most recent and intriguing articles he has writing boasts the importance of Vitamin D to prevent viruses, including Flu viruses.
A recent small survey revealed that AA with High School or less did not know that sodium and salt were the same. This may contribute to the high incidence of hypertension in AA since most are salt sensitive. Physicians, health educators and dietary professionals need to explain to this population that salt and sodium are the same. I think this may also be true in the poor white and hispanic populations. When a individual read a label that say sodium they must know that this is salt.
Has anyone any experience or knowledge with drug called "deprynel." (segeliline), reportedly offering a "cure" for Parkinsons and preventive for both Parkinsons and alzheimer. The seemingly absolute lack of information on this drug in the current medical community baffles me!! This drug reportedly works, has no appreciable side effects, and is readily available to the public. Yet, many neurologists are not familiar with it. Many GPs have never heard of it, or, if so, only in medical school. I… Continue

(3) Maintaining healthy weight (body mass index 18.5-29.9 kg/m2): While it is true that those who are overweight or obese have higher risks of diseases due to the direct and indirect impacts of overweight/obesity. The overweight/obese individuals usually take in more calories. Most likely, they also eat more carbohydrate, with or without more fat and protein at the same time. But reports show that those who are within or below the normal range of Body Mass Index (BMI) are not necessarily… Continue

Based on several articles I saw in the news yesterday, it appears as though the "new" 2010 dietary guidelines will be more of the very same recommendations that have been making us fatter & sicker for the last many years.
What can we do about this? Please post your suggestions.

By Dr. John Briffa
For about 30 years, our governments, health agencies, doctors, and dietitians have been urging us to eat less fat and more carbohydrate. Yet, we now know that many of the fats in the diet, including saturated fat, appear harmless at worst. Some, including the omega-3 fats found in oily fish, look positively beneficial.
On the other side, we also know that excesses of certain carbohydrates (those that are disruptive to blood sugar… Continue
