The excessive exposure to carbs is widespread. They are readily available … at gas stations, convenience stores and mini-marts. Cheap, fast, highly processed, modified “foods” filled with preservatives and sugars. It has made us not only FAT, but also sick with diseases such as diabetes. Insulin is the only thing that your body produces to take the sugars out of your blood.
35 million Americans have diabetes and it is at a growth rate of 1.5 to 1.9 million new diagnoses a year!
A new disease “Adolescent Type II Diabetes” is also on the rise with 280,000 under the age of 20 years old.
Your body makes very limited amounts of insulin. We were not designed to ingest large amounts of carbohydrates. Insulin has multiple functions that are rarely mentioned. It affects your thyroid, sexual hormones and lipids to mention a few. It seems like a very simple and correctable problem, but unfortunately it is not that easy.
