Breakthrough cure for diabetes isn't so; news headlines mislead type 2 diabetics

Recent headlines proclaim, 'A cure for diabetes within ten years!' And as usual, the news has some diabetics thinking, 'Gee, I won't have to stop eating sugar, drinking soft drinks or avoiding ice cream now! The scientists are going to have a cure for diabetes.' And that is one way in which the mainstream media dangerously misleads the American public.

In reality, these headlines are talking about type 1 diabetes, the type that is increasingly rare in proportion to the number of people suffering from adult-onset type 2 diabetes. There is no cure for type 2 diabetes, because type 2 diabetes isn't technically a disease. It's just a metabolic side effect of a lifetime of consuming refined carbohydrates, added sugars, and avoiding physical exercise. So for those out there who are hoping for an instant cure for their type 2 diabetes, this isn't it.

So what breakthrough is this news talking about? It's about a vaccine that's being touted as a cure for type 1 diabetes. To understand the vaccine, however, you have to understand type 1 diabetes in the first place. Type 1 diabetes is technically an autoimmune disorder. It's the result of the body attacking and destroying its own beta cells in the pancreas -- the cells that normally produce insulin. It is the destruction of these beta cells that causes the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, which is characterized by the body's inability to produce adequate insulin in response to rising blood sugar due following the dietary intake of carbohydrates or sugars.

Some doctors say diabetes is a disease that causes the destruction of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. But that logic is completely backwards, even though it is the popular thinking about this so-called disease. The truth is that first the body attacks the beta cells in the pancreas, then the person gets diagnosed as having this inability to produce insulin, and that pattern of symptoms is given a label. That label is the word, 'diabetes.'

So diabetes isn't the cause of the destruction of the beta cells in the pancreas. It is simply the name that is attached to these symptoms. The true cause of diabetes then, remains unexplored if you only pay attention to the description of the disease as offered by conventional medical doctors and researchers.

The next obvious question, then, is: what is the true cause of this autoimmune disorder? Why would the human body attack its own pancreas and destroy the beta cells that are responsible for keeping that person alive? Because without functioning beta cells in the pancreas, most human beings would quickly die without supplemental insulin.

The answer is something that's almost never talked about in the mainstream press: the consumption of dairy products. One of the causes is cow's milk that confuses the body's immune system and makes it to think that the pancreas beta cells are in fact the enemy. The immune system then destroys those cells, resulting in a pattern of symptoms called 'type 1 diabetes.'

There is a strong correlation between the consumption of milk and dairy products and the development of type 1 diabetes. Certainly, there are other causes, but this is one of the more preventable causes of this disorder. The mechanism at work has to do with the milk proteins (casein, among others) that human bodies have difficulty digesting. The presence of these proteins confuses the immune system, causing it to attack its own cells.

Getting back to the diabetes vaccine, what the scientists are talking about is injecting children with a vaccine that would prevent the immune system from attacking the beta cells in the pancreas. Once again, instead of teaching people to consume healthy products and avoid products that are only designed for other species (like cow's milk), conventional medicine is telling you to continue to eat and drink disease-promoting foods, and in the mean time, they will come up with a vaccine and administer it with a shot to excuse you from the consequences of your own dietary choices.

As with most things in conventional medicine, this treatment is designed to take away the responsibility from the patient and put it in a drug. None of this is really talked about in the news about this so-called cure for type 1 diabetes. The press headlines simply call it a 'Cure for diabetes' thereby misleading type 2 diabetics while providing very limited information to type 1 diabetics.

We don't need cures for these diseases as much as we need to start preventing them, because type 1 and type 2 diabetes are both preventable... almost universally so. And prevention is free, by the way. It doesn't require expenditures for prescription drugs, it doesn't require regular visits to the doctor's office, and it doesn't require a lifetime of insulin injections. But it does require that you stop poisoning your body with cow's milk, refined sugars, hydrogenated oils and other toxins found in the conventional food supply.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
