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.
