Can we please avoid criticising fellow forumites.
I have reviewed the comments to my thread I started and have seen that a few of my replies have been removed by you spite them offering good advice. You have not afforded me the courtesy of saying which but have merely removed them as you clearly did not agree with them as you do not understand the topic and stated that "can we please avoid criticising fellow forumites". I have criticised ideas not individuals. I play the ball not the man. It is a bit rich removing comments simply because your own lack of understanding of a topic prevents you from moderating.
It is not only the ignorance that is staggering, but the total lack of wanting educate yourself or refusing to learn how the body works that is even more shocking. Well if you want to believe that factors other than eating too much sugar, too many carbs and processed foods are responsible for type 2 diabetes, then it could be your funeral. Type 2 diabetes causes strokes, heart disease, a fatty liver causing cirrhosis, hardening of arteries, can mean that you can no longer drive due to impairment of vision due to glaucoma caused by diabetes.
You cannot escape the fact that when you eat your body produces insulin. Sugar and carbs create the largest spikes in insulin. If you eat too much sugar and carbs on a regular basis you will develop insulin resistance whether you are male, female, young old, black, white, blue or green. You can REVERSE insulin resistance if you cut out sugar, carbs and processed foods from your diet and do intermittent fasting. If you do NOT put these food groups into your mouth then your insulin levels will start to fall as your body is able to burn fat which will mean you can reduce your blood sugar to a within a level that your body can manage as it did prior to being abused by eating a diet high in sugar and excess carbs. If you eat a diet based on healthy proteins, leafy green veg and healthy fats with periods of IF then you will reverse insulin resistance and become a lot slimmer if you are over weight and healthier. The NHS clearly does not understand this. They have some of the fattest people I've seen working for them!!! Most of the medical profession and drugs companies want type 2 diabetics to remain on medication such as Metaformin for the rest of their lives which will keep doctors, drugs and food manufacturers in cushy well paid jobs for life. It is a silent health scandal. The sad fact is that most people are unaware or just not sufficiently educated or informed to question this, to be able to do some research for themselves, to try and understand what is going on in the body when they eat certain types of foods.
Where there is darkness I try and shed light, where there is ignorance I try and inform. Fine you if want to spend the rest of your life in darkness but don't censor and remove comments simply because your own ignorance is preventing you from understanding what is going on.
