Having a grandmother who had diabetes and required insulin shots every day, I never knew what it was actually doing for her. This book cleared that up for me and explained it in such a way I actually understood without having to re-read that chapter again...meaning it was written with language I (and most non-scientists) could understand.
I'm glad I read this...and it sticks in the back of my mind when my grocery cart starts gravitating toward high-glycemic foods in the store. Great motivation for anyone who is trying to eat a more healthy diet.
Much of his advice focuses on cutting out not just the sugars that you consume, but also anything that would turn to sugar in the body. In other words, starchy carbohydrates are considered sugar by his definition as well. This is a perfect read for anyone who is following a controlled-carb nutritional approach and needs an extra boost of support in overcoming the need for sugar in their lives forever.
Sugar creates and maintains cancers to develop and grow. Want to kill any and all cancer cells in ones body, starve the body of sugar. Just about 2 weeks will do it. Like medicine, it won't work with everyone but it should for the masses.
Go vegetarian. Buy from Farmers Markets and cut out the starch, or anything white. Starch is sugar, this also means white bread.
Dr. Olson is right in saying that the body wants to heal itself. Starve yourself of sugar for 2 weeks and you will become a convert. Your sugar intake will reduce by at least 90%, but YOU HAVE TO WANT TO DO THIS. No one will hold you too it. Do this for yourself and for your family and you should live to see your grand kids grow up and start their own families.
There are other ways to fight cancer, but this is the best. It is metabolic in that the body will automatically take what you eat and treat it accordingly. Sugar in excess of 5% daily will result in poor health and a shorter life. Remember the old term, "Garbage in, garbage out". Sugar in, bad health out.
God bless you all and even the bible backs up this approach to fighting poor health.
