Tequila Could Help With Weight Loss And Diabetes

Tequila Could Help With Weight Loss And Diabetes

There are ups and downs in life - sometimes they come neatly packaged together. If you had to cite particular examples of the latter, you'd probably think of how the foods that taste the best appear to make you fatter.
It's awful. You want to look half decent in those snaps on the beach come summertime, but you also want to stuff your face with greasy chicken, pizza and ice cream.
We're also force-fed bollocks that the likes of greasy chicken is actually 'bad food', whereas salads, kale, avocado and other green things are called 'good food'. Why does it taste so shit in comparison, then? Shite food, if you ask me.
It doesn't help either that all the best alcoholic drinks seem to be full of calories, which effectively means every Saturday night you're drinking the equivalent of four KFCs, only to actually eat another KFC when you're hungover the next day.
If that's the sort of thing you worry about, then here's a tip: drink tequila.
A-fucking-rriba.
According to a study, a key ingredient to the spirit can help with weight loss and controlling blood sugars for diabetics. And you have lemon or lime with it - according to my calculations, that makes it part of your five-a-day.
The Mexican delicacy is made with the agave plant, which contains sugars called agavins - these contribute to lowering levels of blood sugar, as the Daily Mail reports.
Researchers who presented these findings at the American Chemical Society in Dallas say that the plant could be used to create a sweetener to aid diabetics, as well as assisting with weight loss, but are they not missing the trick here? Ma Continue reading

Celiac disease and diabetes link confirmed by Italian study

Celiac disease and diabetes link confirmed by Italian study

There has long been a correlation between celiac disease (CD) and type 1 diabetes.
A study recently published in the journal Endocrine further confirms that link--specifically in a Sicilian population of Italy.
The research, conducted by a team from the Division of Diabetology at Paolo Borsellino Hospital in Marsala, Italy, aimed to determine just how prevalent celiac disease was among diabetics in a particular part of western Sicily.
Details of the study
Analyzing 492 patients who had type 1 diabetes, the researchers found that 4.5 percent of participants had a previous diagnosis of celiac disease. In Italy's general population, about one in 1,000 people is diagnosed with celiac disease.
All of the patients in the study with celiac disease had received the CD diagnosis either at the same time or after the diabetes diagnosis. The average age for a diabetes diagnosis was 13 years old.
The study also showed that, while the CD and type 1 diabetes link is common, it was lower in this Sicilian population than it has been in studies on other Italian populations. The main takeaway was that females who developed type 1 diabetes at an early age had a much higher chance of developing CD shortly thereafter.
What is celiac disease?
As an autoimmune disorder, celiac disease prevents the proper absorption of food in the small intestine, causing extreme nutritional deficiencies and intestinal problems. It's triggered by the presence of gluten, which is found in common foods that include wheat, rye and barley.
Celiac disease, like diabetes, seems to be more common in people of Northern Eur Continue reading

The Truth About Statin Drugs and Why They Are Bad

The Truth About Statin Drugs and Why They Are Bad

The statin is a drug that is used to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood. Before, doctors wanted to put these stain drugs into the water supplies and to be hand them out to the customers of fast food.
In fact, 1 out of 4 Americans that are 55 years old and more use statin drug and most of them do not have heart and cardiovascular problems.
Many of these Americans are prescribed with these drugs just for their high cholesterol. However, the FDA i.e. Food and Drug Administration started forcing some because of the side effects that are found on the statin ads and labels.
Maybe that was the cause why Pfizer which is among the world’s largest pharmaceutical company was not satisfied with $140 billion sales revenue at the time when the patient was in effect on Lipitor. Lipitor is part of the drug class of statins.
Nowadays, the cardiologist and doctors push stains on middle-aged people, and in turn, the pharmaceutical companies continue to collects profits with their versions of statin drugs.
In fact, there are cases of young people that take statins. They have an outdated attitude when it comes to LDL levels i.e. low-density lipoprotein cholesterol that is bad cholesterol and HDL levels i.e. high-density lipoprotein cholesterol that is good cholesterol.
Dr.Carolyn Dean MD, ND, a promoter of the supplementation of magnesium, discussed a Japanese study. That study points out the statin drugs as the perpetrators when it comes to the bad health of the heart and not as the solution to the health of the heart.
