Eating buckwheat lowers blood glucose in diabetics

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Diabetes is primarily a disease induced by food choice. Consuming soft drinks, refined white sugar, white flour, cookies, cakes and other products causes diabetes. Now it turns out you can eat something to help control it.

Buckwheat, researchers have found, controls blood sugar. This isn't new -- holistic nutritionists have known this for a long time -- but it's new to see it in the mainstream news.

Buckwheat actually isn't a grain, by the way. It's technically a fruit, but most people consider it a grain anyway. You can find buckwheat products and mixes (like pancake mix) in your favorite health food store or natural grocer. Look for products made by Bob's Red Mill.
