ADA’s funding affects its advice to diabetics

Finally the general press is getting interested in ADA and their nonsense advice (e.g. oats for breakfast, wholemeal flour is ok, eat fruit). It took a diabetic journalist who reversed his diabetes with a low-carb diet (as you should do) to look into it.

The Guardian has published an article on ADA and how their funding affects their advice to diabetics and keeps them in a perpetual spiral of ever worsening diabetes. They deny it and say their advice is impartial and independent, but when a large portion of your funding comes from companies that have an interest in keeping patients on meds (e.g. Abbott, AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly and Co, Novo Nordisk and Regeneron), the advice will never be how to get off meds and reverse your illness for free.

100,000 people will die this year alone of diabetes and diabetes complications in the US alone. How many could have been saved by good advice instead of pumping meds into them until their bodies give up?

Now that the general press is getting interested, hopefully it will start spreading the information to a public that has always been told that diabetes is a progressive disease that requires insulin, that they can be free of it. That’s going to throw a spanner in the works for all these online groups and subreddits who use ADA’s advice to block all discussion of diabetes reversal.
