(NaturalNews) Diabetes is brought to you in part by Bayer AG - Germany. You know, the most powerful German corporate cartel in the first half of the 20th century - IG Farben (AKA Bayer) - and the single largest profiteer from World War II. This is the same IG Farben that was intimately involved with the human experimental atrocities committed by Mengele at Auschwitz. This company is in business today because we continue to buy their products.

IG Farben was the only German company to run its own concentration camp. At least 30,000 slave workers died in this camp and a lot more were deported to gas chambers. It was no coincidence that IG Farben built their giant plant in Auschwitz, since the 300,000 people they used there were free. The Zyklon B gas, which killed millions of Jews, Gypsies and other people was produced by IG Farben's subsidiary company Degesch.

New news is bad news

ScienceDaily (June 25, 2012) - A new study finds that the fungicide tolylfluanid, manufactured by Bayer AG and used on farm crops can induce insulin resistance and provides yet another piece of evidence linking environmental pollutants to diabetes. The results were presented June 23 at The Endocrine Society's 94th Annual Meeting in Houston. "For the first time, we've ascribed a molecular mechanism by which an environmental pollutant can induce insulin resistance, lending credence to the hypothesis that some synthetic chemicals might be contributors to the diabetes epidemic," said investigator Robert Sargis, M.D., Ph.D., instructor in the endocrinology division at the University of Chicago.

Sargis and co-investigators examined the effects of tolylfluanid on insulin resistance at the cellular level and found that exposure to tolylfluanid induced insulin resistance in fat cells. Sargis says "The fungicide and antifouling agent tolylfluanid may pose a threat to public health through the induction of adipocytic-insulin resistance, an early step in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes... Based on these studies, further efforts should be undertaken to clarify human exposure to tolylfluanid and the possible metabolic consequences of that exposure."

Rising tide of metabolic disease

Close to 26 million adults and children have some form of diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. Diabetes increases the risk of other medical complications, including heart and blood-vessel diseases. In the last decade, research has increasingly focused on the link between environmental contaminants and the escalating rates of diabetes, obesity and other metabolic diseases. Environmental pollutants like tolylfluanid are potential contributors to the rampant metabolic disease epidemic we see today.

Tolyfluanid is actually a hidden source of fluoride

Tolylfluanid has been banned for use in the US because it causes thyroid tumors in rats (not dose/concentration-related), and kidney damage to renal tubules (because tolyfluanid is actually another hidden source of fluoride). The main source for tolylfluanid entering the US is on imported apples and apple juice, grapes and grape juice, head lettuce, hops, tomatoes and other products to which tolylfluanid is applied a maximum of 15 times per season. Tolylfluanid is classified by the EPA as "Likely to be carcinogenic to humans" based on the following weight-of-the-evidence findings: Tolylfluanid induced follicular cell thyroid tumors in high-dose male and female rats and were reproducible. In vitro and in vivo mutagenicity assays found gene mutations and chromosomal aberrations in mammalian cells.

Under other names and uses, this chemical is widely used in paints, wood preservatives and in marine applications.

Even with growing public awareness of environmental toxins and the diseases they cause, it will take decades of human suffering and misery before any semblance of a solution comes to light. Meanwhile it is in the power of the consumer to influence Big Pharma by refusing to buy their products. This will certainly bring about changes quicker than the Big Money-influenced legislation processes. Where is our public outrage? Where do our loyalties lie?

Support public health and decency, be an informed consumer.
