Did you know that about 100 years ago, people mostly died of infectious diseases? By contrast, what is the #1 killer of today, at least in America? Heart disease. What is the cause of heart disease? That’s been debated for decades. The common belief for a long time was that it is high cholesterol. That’s the belief that was taught to me during my high school and college ages, both through my formal schooling and the media. Thanks to the people at the Weston A. Price Foundation, I’ve learned that it’s not cholesterol, it’s too much sugar.
Now I’m hearing other voices saying this same thing, just in a different way, with more implications. Dr. Benjamin Bikman PhD has connected the dots even more to make a clearer picture of how many diseases of the modern age, not just heart disease, but dementia, Alzheimer’s, infertility, PCOS, even cancer and so much more, all come from too much insulin. What does too much insulin come from? From too much blood sugar, which comes from eating carbs, both complex and refined. Yes even too many whole grains. Watch above. It’s amazing that Dr. Bikman has shown that so many diseases come too much insulin. See chart below from his talk above. Wow, I didn’t know that stroke, low T (which I assume means low thyroid), osteoarthritis, and migraines came from too much insulin. This is amazing news that needs to be shouted from the rooftops! I knew body fat came from too much insulin and sugar but not all these other chronic diseases. So what is the solution? Eating a low carb/keto diet. See my post over here for all the nitty gritty details on that. That post is long so skip to the part, around halfway down, that says, “So…are you ready for some solutions?“
You can also get Dr. Bikman’s book to learn more.
