The best cure for the diabetes epidemic is prevention. Notmilk and Notmeat are the curative therapies.

"The percentage of Americans with diabetes has doubled since 1988, with nearly one in 10 adults now diagnosed with the blood-sugar disease, researchers report."
- HealthDay News, Monday, April 14, 2014

The April, 2014 issue of Diabetes Care includes a diabetes study in which 42 scientists from 29 different world medical schools, hospitals, and universities reached the same conclusion: "Type 2 diabetes is caused by eating too much animal protein."

One major finding of the research scientists: "Plant protein intake was not associated with type 2 diabetes."

(Milk is liquid meat. In 1970, the average American consumed 10 pounds of cheese per year. In 2014, the average American will consume over 42 pounds of cheese. Ten pounds of milk are needed to manufacture one pound of hard cheese.)

Dr. Monique van Nielen from the Netherlands was the lead researcher (Division of Human Nutrition, Wageningen University, Wageningen, the Netherlands) was the lead researcher.
Doctors examined 28,557 human subjects, 12,403 of whom were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. They found one major difference between the diabetics and the controls.

Those having diabetes consumed in excess of 110 grams per day of animal protein. Those not diagnosed with diabetes consumed less than 70 grams per day of total protein. The World Health Organization recommends that adults consume between 28 and 35 grams per day of protein.

Their conclusion:

In view of the rapidly increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes, limiting iso-energetic diets high in dietary proteins, particularly from animal sources, should be considered.

The best cure for the diabetes epidemic is prevention. Notmilk and Notmeat are the curative therapies.

"If you find diseases before they've really emerged, you can control them early on, before you get a major epidemic."
