Metabolic Syndrome: Fatty Bum Bum

Barbadians love sugar and this is no secret. We are known also as the amputation capital of the world and the high incidence of non communicable diseases is also no secret. There is evidence more Barbadians are buying into good diet and exercise albeit at too sluggish a rate.

    You are right! Sugar is the cause of a lot of health problems. Not so much low glycemic sweeteners like manuka honey, Stevia and agave. Sugar generally and cane sugar in particular, is indeed more dangerous than pot salt although both are to be avoided at all and any cost. Not certain salts, like Himalayan salt though, that can actually lower HPB and have several good effects. Sugar has always been more dangerous than normal pot salt. Sugar is really a drug and should be so treated and classified!

  • Then there is high fructose corn syrup, which is bad, real bad and maybe be the single causal reason, as a cheap sweetener in the Western diet, which is responsible for the spike in diabetes, pre-diabetes, overweight and its link with HPB. Of course there are other less important factors as well.

    A dangerous dose
    2004-09-05, Boston Globe

    Marcia Angell [is] a faculty member at the Harvard Medical School [and one of the] former editors of The New England Journal of Medicine. Her new book, “The Truth About the Drug Companies,” is a sober, clear-eyed attack on the excesses of drug company power. How does the drug industry deceive us? It plies attending physicians with expense-paid junkets to St. Croix and Key West, Fla., where they are given honoraria and consulting fees to listen to promotional presentations. It promotes new or little-known diseases such as “social anxiety disorder” and “premenstrual dysphoric disorder” as a way of selling the drugs that treat them. It sets up phony front groups disguised as “patient advocacy organizations.” It hires ghostwriters to produce misleading scientific articles and then pays academic physicians to sign on as authors. It sends paid lackeys and shills out onto the academic lecture circuit to ”educate” doctors about a drug’s unapproved uses. It hires multinational PR firms to trumpet dubious studies as scientific breakthroughs while burying the studies that are likely to harm sales. It buys up the results of publicly funded research. It maintains a political chokehold on the American public by donating more money to political campaigns than any other industry in the country. For many years the drug industry has reaped the highest profit margins of any industry in America. In 2002, the top 10 American drug companies had profit margins of 17 percent; Pfizer, the largest, had profit margins of 26 percent. So staggeringly profitable is the drug industry that in 2002 the combined profits for the top 10 drug companies in the Fortune 500 were greater than those of all the other 490 companies combined.

No other than Dr David Graham (MD Harvard) 20+yrs in the FDA Monitoring Section said about 10yrs ago on PBS that the Approvals Section at the FDA may as well work for the Pharma Cos. He went on to say that Viox would eventually be forced off the market, which it was a year later.

    Natural brown sugar, raw sugar or whole cane sugar is a brown sugar produced from the first crystallization of the sugar cane. Based upon weight, unrefined brown cane sugar, when fully refined, yields about 70% white sugar.[5][6] There is more molasses in natural brown sugar, giving it a higher mineral content. Some natural brown sugars have particular names and characteristics, and are sold as turbinado, muscovado, or demerara sugar. Although brown sugar has been touted as having health benefits ranging from soothing menstrual cramps to serving as an anti-aging skin treatment,[7][8] there is no nutritional basis to support brown sugar as a healthier alternative to refined sugars despite the negligible amounts of minerals in brown sugar not found in white sugar.[9]

  • Does eating too much sugar cause diabetes?

    For years, scientists have said “not exactly.” Eating too much of any food, including sugar, can cause you to gain weight; it’s the resulting obesity that predisposes people to Type 2 diabetes, according to the prevailing theory.

    But now the results of a large epidemiological study conducted at UC San Francisco suggest that sugar may also have a direct, independent link to diabetes.

    Sanjay Basu, MD, PhDSanjay Basu, MD, PhD

    Researchers examined data on global sugar availability and diabetes rates from 175 countries over the past decade. After accounting for obesity and a large array of other factors, the researchers found that increased sugar in a population’s food supply was linked to higher Type 2 diabetes rates, independent of obesity rates. Their study was published Feb. 27 in PLOS ONE.

    Every time we consume foods high in starches, as most West Indies seems do, our pancreas shoots out a certain amount of insulin. So if we continue to consume this high starch diet consistently, and over the course of several decades, it can over work the pancreas.
    And this can render our pancreas ineffective; resulting in a residue of insulin in the bloodstream as well as protein in the urine. So in reality, consuming large amounts of starchy foods for over a long period of time, can render the pancreas ineffective or kill it completely.

    STICK TO THAT MR KNOW IT ALL! I MEAN MR BRASS BOWL.

    AS DAVID WOULD SAY, YOU HAVE THE LAST WORD
    WHAT HARD QUESTION YOU ASK ME ?

    I DECIDE THAT WHEN YOU COME YOU SHOULD DO THE TEACHING AND EXPLANATION. CAUSE YOU KNOW EVA TING BOUT EVA TING

    I ASKED YOU TWO OR THREE SIMPLE QUESTIONS…..AND YOU STARTED YOUR USUAL AD HOMINEMS

    HOW IS FRUCTOSE OR FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP METABOLIZED

    IS THERE NOT A DIRECT correlation between the levels of ALCOHOL consumed in a society and the incidence of diabetes in that society TOO?

    WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP?
    BTW….WHEN I POST POWER POINTS… THE TEACHING IS ACCURATE AND UP TO DATE

    You’re a little more ignorant than I thought doc. Just to inform your understanding doc: 2014 marks twenty- two years that I have been working in the healthcare industry. And out of those twenty -two, I have spent five in the emergency -room environment. And I haven’t any idea what pathology means? Oh! The level of your arrogance is irritating as well as repulsive doc.

    Brambles aint got nothing to do with white. That terminology I picked up from my black pals in the village and school.

    Doing superior work in the correct, well known “forest” is very honorable and I can honestly attest to having never been admonished by any beneficiary! lol
