(NaturalNews) A new study published in the journal Lancet, the same journal that in 2010 corruptly pulled Dr. Andrew Wakefield's 1998 study linking the combination measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine to bowel disease and autism (http://www.naturalnews.com), suggests that drugging those with "pre-diabetes" may be a viable way to prevent the onset of diabetes.

Concocted by a research team from the so-called Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), the study makes the painfully obvious claim that individuals with normal blood sugar levels are far less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than individuals with elevated blood sugar levels. But rather than have pre-diabetic patients exclusively follow proper dietary and exercise protocols to keep their blood sugar levels in check, the researchers make the implication that "preventative" drugs may be the preferred option.

The study included 1,990 participants who were part of the larger Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study, an ongoing observational study that compares the effectiveness of various treatment protocols in preventing diabetes. Among this group, 736 participants were randomly assigned to "intensive lifestyle intervention" as their treatment, while 647 were given metformin, a blood glucose drug. The remaining 607 participants were given a placebo.

In the end, those who successfully returned to normal glucose regulation from all groups were found to be 56 percent less likely to go on to develop diabetes than those whose blood sugar levels remained elevated. This makes sense, of course, as blood sugar levels that persistently remain high are oftentimes indicative of oncoming diabetes, as the body becomes increasingly unable to produce enough insulin to normalize blood sugar levels.

But of particular concern in the study is its implication that "intensive lifestyle intervention," which is not specifically defined, is no better than placebo at preventing diabetes among those who do not attain normal glucose regulation. In other words, metformin and potentially other drug interventions are insinuated to be a more effective diabetes prevention method than lifestyle and dietary changes.

Paving the way for universal diabetes 'pre-treatment'

But since "intensive lifestyle intervention" is not clearly defined in the study, there is no way to know what this term actually means. Did the participants in the lifestyle change group continue to consume high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), for instance, which has been shown not only to be vastly different in composition to glucose and other forms of sugar, but also a specific aggravator of diabetes?

The study also fails to specify whether those in the so-called "intensive lifestyle intervention" group consumed blood sugar-regulating foods such as non-irradiated cinnamon and cayenne pepper, and avoided eating diabetes-promoting foods like refined grains, processed foods and excess sugars. And if they did follow these dietary patterns, how strictly did participants follow them and in what quantities did they eat, or not eat, certain foods?

These are details that make all the difference in determining the effectiveness of any "intensive lifestyle intervention," as conventional dietary and lifestyle approaches for diabetics often conflict with real-life approaches that actually work. This was seen recently in the case of Steve Cooksey, the North Carolina blogger who was targeted for his anti-diabetes protocols that directly contradict his state's official recommendations http://www.naturalnews.com).

Just like with statin drugs (http://www.naturalnews.com/029467_statin_drugs_fast_food.html), mainstream medicine is trying to turn glucose-regulating drugs into some type of pseudo-preventative supplement that people take before they even have diabetes. And if enough studies come out supporting the idea that taking such drugs can prevent disease, it may be considered prudent and economically viable to begin treating healthy people with such drugs as a type of pre-treatment.

You can prevent diabetes by simply eating right and exercising

The good news, however, is that controlling blood sugar levels does not require taking drugs. The first step is to simply eliminate poisons like HFCS; refined white flour (and for some people, all gluten-based products); soy-based foods and additives; omega-6-rich oils like canola and soybean; artificial flavorings and additives; and hormone- and antibiotic-laden conventional meat products from your diet.

The second step is to replace these foods with stevia or very small quantities of low-glycemic sweeteners like natural agave and coconut sugar; gluten-free or even fully grain-free foods; omega-3-rich foods and oils like salmon, hemp, chia; organic, grass-fed meats; and organic, nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables.

Exercising regularly, which may include bouncing on a rebounder in the morning (http://www.naturalnews.com/031739_rebounding_cell_health.html), will also go a long way towards normalizing cell function throughout the body, which in turn will help regulate metabolism and blood sugar levels. Drinking plenty of fluoride- and chemical-free water; consuming trace mineral-rich sea and mineral salts; keeping your body alkaline (http://www.naturalnews.com/Report_acid_alkaline_pH_0.html); and juicing regularly all play a vital role in overall bodily health as well.
