Health Issues for Barbadians – Diabetes, Hypertension, Alzheimer, Erectile Dysfunction

Submitted by Bentley

For years (article published in Barbados Underground in 2007) I have been saying that diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer, erectile dysfunction and several other similar conditions all have the same cause, the inability of the body to metabolise carbohydrates effectively, a condition named Chronic Metabolic Collapse Syndrome.  The medical community is only now recognising this.  It will take at least another 15 years before they start recommending effective methods to prevent these conditions.

  • Sucrase deals with the Glycosidic bond.. don’t play me.

  • The differences between natural fructose, tampered fructose and sucrose, plus additives.. the effects on the liver and insulin production.. moderation is the key, especially knowing when best to use any sugar.

    If man were to be told what he is, it would drive many of us mad.

    One wonders what being “sons and daughters of God ” really means and the fact that, like broken records, we come to BU each day, and like me, write drivel.

    Let de ole man give you a parable for those of you who love parables, a bit of psychobabble for the sheeple in the class and plain drivel.

    The way of flesh brings with it diabetes, hypertension and all these other things.

    The Way and the Truth brings Life and Life Abundantly.

    And please do not interpret this as a Bible Thumping Announcement.

    This is fact borne out by the global reality that is man’s experience.

    If we seek The Higher Pathway we all will abandon this morass and the moronic discourses about muscle and brain and sucrose and fructose.

    Which of you, being in possession of a table fork takes it to eat soup?

    Therefore, why is it that you sentient beings, being gifted with “awareness”, contend with insignificant things like this dross?

    This flesh WILL PASS because it cannot go through to the other side but we are constantly focusing on the transient here and losing sight of what is real and permanent.

    This earth is subservient to our wills BECAUSE HE SAYS IT IS and we should not get tied up with this morass.

    Physician heal thyself is truly the most serious statement made here because, of all the drivel, it is “androgynous” and applies to everything that is said here.

    Be it economics, financial, medical or political.

    But it serves a purpose to keep us masses ignorant of who we are and what we are capable of.

    And therefore, one that awareness comes, you can expect what is the reward for promoting a different pathway.

    De ole man gone and will leave wunna to continue the drivel.

    Bless all wunna souls.

    Do you know you committed an “abominable act” by presenting statements “Muscle Brain” previously posted to prove he actually wrote shiite?

    Perhaps it’s “a cultural thing.”

    Like

  • “The brain is a muscle too.”

    What the bloody hell……..

    I could imagine the level of insults and pejorative remarks “Muscle Brain” would spew if David BU had written the above comment and he DISAGREED with it?

    Such as: “You silly man, you should post anonymously. It is typical of the nonsense you say when you intervene in discussions you know nothing about. Remind me, David, were did you go to school? It is this low level form of semi-literacy that pervades Barbados.”

    And rather than move on and apologize, he continues to argue with a medical doctor and presents more unsubstantiated waffle that does not DEFINITIVELY PROVES the brain is ACTUALLY a muscle…….or CONTAINS muscle tissues……..

    ………but could be reasonably INTERPRETED as some scientists theorising “the brain can be developed and function” to MIMIC muscles.

    Perhaps this nonsense came as a result of “learning by rote” or “using Google too much.”

  • One would think that after that lesson given by Bushie on the intricacies of water (H 2 O), the alleged teacher GP – who was previously adamant that ‘water is water and “all water is the same” would be a bit more circumspect is his childish dismissal of very similar statements by ‘9 of 9’ about even more complex compounds such as sucrose and fructose.

    ANY normal person – having been humbled with the new knowledge recently received on the actual complexities of water, would reflect that the DESIGNERS of these elements and compounds knew MUCH MORE about what they were doing than his now Alzheimer’s infected brain is able to contemplate.

    Besides… anyone who would eat 20 fishcakes for breakfast HAS to be an idiot…. or at the very least – a glutton.

  • @ Pedantic,

    Thanks for your reference. But you will notice that in my first reply I said the brain was a muscle. All the other posts were quotes from experts, including medical doctors and psychologists, published in peer review publications, debating the issue. So, it is fair to say there is some controversy within the various disciplines associated with the brain. I have no interest in the outcome. Quoting someone does not mean endorsing them.
    You will also note that all the vitriol was aimed at me, rather than the authors of the controversial views, but that is fine.
    As to the reference to recognising a psychopath, again you will see that that was in reply to an issue raised by @Lexicon. A psychopath displays certain recognised behavioural tendencies. I did not call anyone I have never met a psychopath.

    Senor Austin, you are the consummate ‘politician’ but dressed up in journalistic garb….you DISSEMBLE well like the best pols do.

    Blogging is all OPINION, not so!

    So yes you quoted experts but it was to support YOUR opinion…yours did not meet the base standard of an unbiased, reported piece of NEWS facts.

    Yes your first reply (erroneously) said the brain was a muscle… And then almost ALL the other quoted posts from the experts CLEARLY said the brain CANNOT be a muscle in any biological practical sense but rather they COMPARED it’s functional ability to that of muscle development…

    …they never said it WAS A MUSCLE… thus it’s inconceivable why you maintain the fiction that there is some controversy within the various disciplines associated with the brain.

    Your collective excerpts offered no such controversy from all I read.

    Now on another point why do you find it fashionable to hide ridiculously behind statements like… “As to the reference to recognising a psychopath, again you will see that that was in reply to an issue raised by @Lexicon.”

    Two things…

    YOU could have chosen NOT to respond…so the moment you did it was YOUR commentary …and had nothing more to do with him.

    Stop playing mental gymnastics …fah real

    You then went on to say you know a psychopath when you see one and added for effect 😂 I presume…”even a qualified doctor”… Or something to that effect.

    So ever the political dissembler …you are quite correct that you “…did not call anyone [by name whom you] have never met a psychopath.”

    But boy it sure looked that you called our resident nameless doc a psychopath to me… but maybe I need glasses too..😂

    I have never been so insulted as to be called a politician. I would rather have a muscle brain.
    Here is one quote: “However, there are some theories that describe the brain as a muscle in the sense that it can be trained to improve different cognitive functions like working memory or math skills. Maybe here is where the confusion appears. The fact is that new evidence shows the brain can be developed and function like a….”
    So there must be more than one to be theories. Don’t ask me to find them; I do not like medicine and doctors and won’t know where to look. Controversy means mean more than one theory.
    @De pedantic, I suggest you stick to what is said and not try to interpret the author’s(mine or any other person’s) words. You are not the only one on BU who does, that is why I call it cultural. It is much better to ask the person what s/he really means. That clarifies everything.

  • It has nothing to do with the nutritional value of soft drinks, and I did not say that it had.

    We ate/drank high caloric foods. We got a lot of exercise and “burned off” any excess consumption.

    In addition since most families did not have refrigeration, and since sweet drinks taste better when they are nice and cold, chances are the 6 to 8 once sweet drink we had on school days was it. Likely we had none at home, except maybe at Christmas time.

    I still get a lot of exercise, 7 to 15 hours per week I eat pretty much what I feel like, but I haven’t gained any weight for decades, and sometimes when I go to the doctor I have lost weight, that is especially so during the rainy season when I do maybe 15 hours of hard labour each week.

    So you are wondering if perhaps the news killed her rather than the disease?

  • Google what, you seem not to understand the power of intuition when that door is widely open, neither of accessing the realms of Source, the Akash or mind, ….like the Pharasees..”having knowledge but lack the power thereof”. By the way, why do you associate me with Biochemistry, that is so much linearity and based?

    Now you move to Fabrications, no where in the video did the Dr say he is being paid, obviously you are disclosing aspects of the fraternity, nothing new there, actually by your definition, it seems that doctors are dummies, that says much of those who tutor them.

    As for the Rapture, not so much the what, but how it unfolds…it’s future knowledge for most and by that time, many will be aghast at the loss for lack of belief and action.. “Depart from me, you workers of iniquity”.

    Still waiting for what is your answer to what is the Trinity and while you at it, the code of 12. ..

    Don’t play with me.

    My old cane cutter friend, 74 last Thursday, told me all the old people up by him keep or kept a garden with sweet potatoes minimum.

    By old he means anyone older than he is who he came and found, so 85 and above!!

    He introduced me to a 98 year old man who rides his bicycle daily to lime with the boys!!

    Part of the benefit of the garden, besides exercise and good food is that it allows the old person to just step outside and make a healthy meal.

    They don’t have to rely on young folk to transport them to the supermarket or bring them food.

    Gardening makes them INDEPENDENT, a feeling they enjoyed from long before 1966!!

    I have noticed that old people tend not to eat if it is difficult to get food and can quickly go down hill if their families are slow to spot the signs.

    Sometimes it is necessary to take the independence away gently.

  • My great grandmother on my Grandfather’s side was a seamstress and her husband a tailor.

    They lived in Oistins.

    She worked hard all her life to make ends meet.

    One day, she decided she was done with all the work and took to her bed.

    She quickly passed.

    She was born in the 1850’s and died in the 1930’s, long before I was born.

    She was probably about 80.

    It is possible she was ill but the oral family history was she just decided to go ‘long.

    My grandfather died at 91 in 1985.

    He ate well and did not take a lot of exercise but was never overweight.

    He was always however thinking and interested in life!!

    He was sharp as a tack until his death.

    What’s inside your mind is also important, it isn’t only diet and exercise.

    My grandfather survived a near death experience in 1968, left the island for surgery in New York in 1968 on a stretcher and survived to tell the tale … in fact he used to enjoy relating his experiences to anyone who would listen, family or not, even to the point of showing the scars,

    All I knew as a child was he had his spleen removed.

    Health is a combination of the mental and physical.

    Quite often the mental aspect of health trumps (no pun intended) the physical!!

    Elizabeth Holder at 120 was buried in Westbury in 1878 I think, need to check where she died.

    The 114 year old slave who appears in the 1817 returns I believe was Ch Ch or St. Philip but I would need to check.

    The 126 year old woman, Elizabeth Philips, was either Ch Ch or St. Philip, would need to check.

    That was in the 1800’s.

    IN 1975 IN THE SUMMER HOLIDAY AFTER MY FIRST YEAR AS A MED STUDENT MY MOM GOT ME A JOB WORKING IN THE HOSPITAL LAB. THAT SUMMER I ATTENDED 25 POST MORTEMS

    AT ONE PARTICULAR POST MORTEM I WATCHED THE PATHOLOGIST REMOVE TISSUES AND ORGANS FROM ALL OVER THE BODY OF THIS DECEASED 80 YEAR OLD.

    AS HE SLICED UP THE MATERIALS FOR MICROSCOPIC ANALYSIS LATER HE KEPT SHAKING HIS HEAD

    EVENTUALLY OUT OF CURIOSITY, I ASKED HIM WHY HE WAS SHAKING HIS HEAD

    HE SAID THAT HE COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG WITH THE MAN FROM GROSS VISUALIZATION OF THE TISSUES

    I CONCLUDED THAT THE MAN HAD DIED NOT BECAUSE HE WAS SICK BUT BECAUSE HE HAD SINNED. CALL ME CRAZY BUT THAT IS WHAT I THOUGHT THEN AND IT IS WHAT I BELIEVE NOW. AND I HAVE SCRIPTURE TO BACK MY VIEW

    All you have to do is google “common traits of those who live to 100” and you will see the researchers already know, or at least, think they know.

    What they do not know and will never know is which are the more important traits and in what combination.

    So they reduce it to a dozen or less!!

    Maybe they missed a couple of important ones!!

  • @Georgie Porgie December 2, 2018 4:34 PM “I NOTE YOU SAID SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN TIRED frOm both the flu and the underlying lukemia BUT NOT FROM THE HARDWORK.”

    This is completely unscientific, but i speak about “good tired” and “bad tired”

    Good tired is what I feel after two to five hours working in the garden in the hot sun, I always take along plenty of water, and most times a good friend. When I come home I am good tired. But a shower and a good meal renews me. So sometimes I’ll then do 3 or 4 hours of light housework, laundry, cooking, cleaning windows. A good night’s sleep and I am good to go next morning.

    Bad tired is what I feel if I sit around all day. Bad tired is what I’ve felt when I had had the flu. Had the flu last in 2012. At that time I was so tired that I felt that death would have been a release.

    However I am glad that I am still here.

    So I am all for physical activity, including regular intense activity.

    We have suicide and drug abosuse in Barbados too, but maybe our elders can teach the world something.

    When a friend f my father’s was only 103, I asked him if he would marry again. He had been married a couple of time before. His response “of course nuh!” I don’t think that he ever worried about ED. Very, very, positive person.

    Another old guy I know would every evening ride his bicycle from Sion Hill to Green Hill (a distance of about 7 or 8 miles) when he was well up to his late 80’s or early 90’s. He lived alone, and “did” for himself, but I heard that he had a girlfriend at Green Hill, but I am not a one to bring tales out of school (may he rest in peace)

    WHAT YOU CALL “GOOD TIRED” IS A SENSE OF SATISFACTION—PLEASURE AT HAVING ACHIEVED OR ATTAINED A PARTICULAR GOAL…

    WHAT YOU CALL “BAD TIRED” IS A SENSE OF BOREDOM–A SENSE OF HAVING WASTED SOME OF THE TIME ALLOTTED TO YOU. THIS IS PAINFUL AND NOT AT ALL PLEASURABLE

    I CANT UNDERSTAND HOW FOLK DONT LIKE OR WANT TO WORK

    AS SOON AS GOD MADE ADAM HE PUT HIM TO WORK
    I SINCERELY BELIEVE THAT WE WERE MADE TO WORK

    I ALSO BELIEVE THAT MEN SHOULD SEEK WORK BEFORE THEY LOOK FOR WOMAN JUST AS ADAM HAD WORK BEFORE EVE WAS MADE
