Number 150: The SAD Diet Dies

  • My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:

    Last month HealthCentral published four more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:

  • Another Nail in the SAD Coffin. The standard American diet that our medical establishment so dearly loves is dying a slow, painful death. And it’s coming not a moment too soon. The diet’s death is arriving after it killed so many of us and crippled millions more with diabetes or obesity.
  • Indigenous Diabetes. The people who suffer the most from diabetes are the original inhabitants of the lands that the Western societies occupied. Whether they are the Native Americans, people of Canada’s First Nations, Australia’s Indigenous population, or other conquered peoples, the result everywhere has been the same -- lots of diabetes. The reason why is no mystery.
  • A Good Day to Die. The day that I posted this article my brother-in-law died. All that day I thought about that famous statement, “This is a good day to die.” The statement probably strikes most of of as being illogical. This is certainly a good day to live. Isn’t the day that we die an awful day? No, it’s not.
  • Meters for Christmas. If Santa gave you a new blood glucose meter for Christmas, my guess is that you didn’t get what you wanted. But I’m sure that you got what you needed. I hope that you had such good luck.
  • Dr. Bernstein's Webcast

    If you have any interest in controlling your diabetes by low-carb eating, one of the best resources is Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's monthly webcast. It's an hour of excellent diabetes education.

    Dr. Bernstein's next live tele-seminar is Wednesday January 26th, 2010, at 7PM CST, 8PM EST, 6PM MST, 5PM PST. He designed it to answer your most important questions concerning diabetes and to offer his thoughts on the latest developments in this area.

    The seminar is free. You can click here to register: http://www.diabetes911.net/askdrb/index.php. It's also available as a live webcast both on the Internet and by phone.
