• The FDA-Approved Anti-Diabetic Drug You Can Buy By The Pound (And It Was Stolen From Nature)

    Posted June 20, 2013: by Bill Sardi

    In 2008 tagatose was declared a “new anti-diabetic and obesity control drug.”  It was said to be in Phase 3 of a human clinical trial to address “the rapidly growing epidemic of type 2 (adult onset) diabetes.
    The report said tagatose was initially developed by a company as a low calorie sugar substitute.  It is sweet, but only 20% of orally ingested tagatose is fully metabolized, following a metabolic pathway similar to fructose.

    Tagatose has gained FDA status as “generally regarded as safe (GRAS) which permits it to be used in foods and beverages.  The report says “a 14-month trial confirms its potential for treating type 2 diabetes, and tagatose showed promise for inducing weight loss” as well.  Tagatose was also identified as an antioxidant and prebiotic (favors good bacteria in the digestive tract).

  • The Cow’s Milk Coverup

    Posted June 15, 2013: by Bill Sardi

    Childhood (Type 1) diabetes is becoming more prevalent.  There has to be a cause, yet for inexplicable reasons the obvious is not considered.

    A report published in The Daily Mail (UK) says Type 1 diabetes appears to be spread by an infectious agent, which is a correct statement, but then goes on to quote investigators who point to “an infectious agent carried by a wild animal.”  Wild animals?  It is children in more advanced countries, not kids living in remote less civilized areas that come down with diabetes.

    A report published late in 2012 in Scientific American said: “For reasons completely mysterious… the incidence of Type 1 diabetes has been increasing throughout the globe at rates that range from 3 to 5 percent per year.”  The report goes on to say: “The search for a culprit resembles the next-to-last scene in an Agatha Christie mystery – the one in which the detective explains which of the many suspects could not possibly have committed the crime.”

  • No Anti-Diabetes Drug Addresses Primary Cause Of The Disease

    Posted September 11, 2012: by Bill Sardi

    Adult-onset diabetes is treated by a variety of drugs: an old standby, chlorpropamide (Diabinese), stimulates the pancreas to release more insulin.  Newer drugs that perform the same function as Diabinese are exenatide (Byetta), glipizide (Glucotrol and Glucotrol XL), glyburide (Micronase, Glynase, and Diabeta), glimepiride (Amaryl), repaglinide (Prandin) and nateglinide (Starlix), but may not work any better than chlorpropamide.
 Then there are drugs that inhibit insulin resistance, such as Rosiglitazone (Avandia), pioglitazone (ACTOS), and metformin (Glucophage).  Other anti-diabetic drugs like Acarbose (Precose) and meglitol (Glyset) help the body to lower blood sugar levels by blocking the breakdown of starches in the intestine.  You would get the impression that diabetes is a drug deficiency rather than a diet-related/age-related disease.

    Exactly what causes blood sugar levels to rise in middle-age?  Researchers have known that answer to that question since 1994 – the accumulation of iron in the body.  And it has been demonstrated numerous times that depletion of iron stores, as measured by the amount of an iron storage protein called ferritin, will produce long-term resolution of diabetes.  Repeated blood donation can also accomplish this (a unit of blood contains about 250 milligrams of iron).  Blood-letting combined with a natural iron chelator (key-lay-tor) like IP6 rice bran extract may eliminate the need to take drugs altogether.    View the entire text of the recent report here.

  • The Man Who Shouldn’t Be Alive

    Posted February 6, 2010: by Bill Sardi

    Louis Campos of Ventura, California, approaching his 64th birthday this month, is a man who frankly should not be alive.

    For a man who has experienced four separate heart attacks over a period of 7 years, and came within minutes of dying due to severe dehydration from acute diabetes, which required emergent infusion of 13 liters of intravenous fluid, and had a pancreas that ceased to function resulting in his total dependence upon insulin, as well as the development of small hemorrhages in the back of his eyes, Lou is a walking miracle.

    Today Louis takes no medications — no insulin or blood pressure pills, not even a baby aspirin. His most recent electrocardiogram shows no evidence of prior heart attacks, and even two recommended knee operations were cancelled.  There has been low loss of vision.
