One of the most common diseases in the world is diabetes. Diabetes is very common in the United States. According to American Diabetes Association, there are about 24 million people in the United States with diabetes. This number is suppose to double within the next decade and can cost Americans more than $175 billion.
Diabetes is not just a problem in the United States. In fact, India and China have the most people with diabetes. Percentage wise, the United States has more people with diabetes than any country in the world. Worldwide, the estimated number of people with diabetes is about 250 million and growing at an alarming rate.
The causes of diabetes
The main causes of diabetes are lifestyle and diet. Many health experts believe that genetics also play an important role for diabetes. Diet is one of the main causes of diabetes because without the right nutrients, your body cannot function properly which can promote diabetes.
If you look at countries that rely heavily on organic raw plant-based food, they rarely have problems with diabetes or any other chronic diseases. On the other hand, countries that rely heavily on processed meat-based food have very high cases of diabetes, especially countries that rely heavily on fast food and junk food. This is one of the main reasons why the United States is the country with the most diabetes (percentage wise).
Why companies and agencies claim there is no cure for diabetes
The American Diabetes Association claim that there is no cure for diabetes but this is actually not totally accurate. There are thousands, maybe even millions of people worldwide who have reversed their diabetes by changing their lifestyle habits.
So, why is The American Diabetes Association and many other similar associations claim that there is no cure for this worldwide pandemic disease? Like many similar associations, the American Diabetes Association is highly influenced by big corporations. In this case it is mostly the food and drug companies. They are the companies that are lobbying the American Diabetes Association.
It is very important that you understand the strong ties between corporations and the American Diabetes Association, because many of these big corporations are the ones calling the shots. The FDA and BBB are two of many examples of agencies that are also influenced by these big corporations. Most of these systems are designed to deceive the public from the truth and help corporations to profit from them.
If you do not believe that raw organic plant-based diets can heal or reverse diabetes, you should watch the video Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days. This video is hard to find in local stores so you may have to order it online.
In this documentary, Gabriel Cousens (M.D.), author of There is a Cure for Diabetes, took 6 diabetics to Patagonia, Arizona for a raw food diet challenge. They had to eat nothing but raw organic plant-based food (mostly uncooked) for thirty days. Within 14 days, most of them were already off of their insulin and medication. At the end of the 30 days, all but one were insulin free. The raw organic food diet even cured one of the type 1 diabetes.
Another video that I recommend is Foodmatters. You can also order it online. This video goes in depth about how whole food is essential for curing chronic diseases, such as heart diseases, diabetes and cancer. It also covers many of the lies about the food and drug industry, and how they are designed to keep you sick so they can make more profit.
After watching Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days I felt sick to my stomach, I did not realize how much suffering diabetics had to go through everyday to survive. One of the type 1 diabetes in the video had to take about 70 units of insulin everyday to maintain his blood sugar level. Because of what I saw, I decided to write this article to educate diabetics that there is a way to reverse their diabetes, even for type 1. If you have diabetes, I highly encourage you to watch the videos I mentioned above because it may save your life.
