Starbucks apologizes to man who received ‘diabetes here I come’ message on cup

A 16-ounce white chocolate mocha has 470 calories and 59 grams of sugar when made with 2% milk and topped with whipped cream, according to Starbucks. But it isn’t supposed to come sprinkled with snark.
The Seattle-based coffee chain has apologized to a Florida man who says he ordered a white chocolate mocha and received an unwelcome message printed on the cup’s label: “DIABETES HERE I COME.”
Action News Jacksonville reports that the incident occurred at Starbucks’ Palencia Village location in St. Augustine on Friday morning.
“I was taken aback,” the customer, who did not wish to be identified on camera, told the network. “That first word just automatically brought the picture of both sisters in my head, and I was taken aback.”
The man said his two sisters suffer from type 1 diabetes and that the snarky message brought back memories of “the struggles they went through and all the doctor appointments they had.”
“This is something we definitely don’t condone,” Kent Miller, the store’s manager, told the CBS and Fox affiliate.
“We strive to provide an inclusive and positive experience for our customers, and we’re disappointed to learn of this incident,” the Seattle-based company said in a statement. “We are working directly with the customer to apologize for his experience, and with our partners to ensure this does not happen again.”
The customer said he wasn’t looking for an apology — he just wanted to ensure something like this doesn’t happen again.
“Seeing and knowing the struggle my sisters went through by third, fourth gr Continue reading

The Sugar-Diabetes-Dementia Triangle

The Sugar-Diabetes-Dementia Triangle

Sugar raises diabetes AND dementia risk. Will research into the hormone "amylin" reveal the reason why?
University of California's Dr. Robert Lustig built a team of statisticians and epidemiologists to look at the relationship between food and diabetes risk. The now famous paper on sugar and diabetes, published in the professional journal PLoS One, found that the more sugar on the market in 175 countries, the higher the country's diabetes rate.
Professor Lustig said, "I'm not suggesting sugar is the only cause of diabetes. But in this analysis it was the only thing that predicted it. And it was worldwide and over a decade."
The researchers found that for every can of sweetened soda available per person per day (150 calories), diabetes in the population rose 1%. The same number of calories any other type of food only caused a 0.1 percent increase in a population's diabetes rate over the past decade.
The researchers took into account obesity, exercise, along with various societal and economic variables.
Sugar & Dementia
In the video and article entitled, "Sugar and Dementia," researchers shared rich data demonstrating that the more sugar a person eats, the higher their risk for dementia.
Is all this research connected? Is there a sugar - diabetes - dementia triangle?
A study at the NIA-funded Alzheimer's Disease Center at the University of California, Davis, suggests they are connected by the hormone called "amylin".
Deposits of the hormone amylin in the brain may indicate risk for developing dementia and type 2 diabetes, according to this study published online in t Continue reading

How to Heal Your Gut When You Have Diabetes

How to Heal Your Gut When You Have Diabetes

The gut has been called the second "brain" of the body, because it is so intricately linked to health.
And as emerging research shows the intestinal microbiome - or makeup of specific gut bacteria - can contribute to conditions like diabetes, it's never been more important to focus on gut health.
Here are a few ways to heal your gut naturally, which could improve your diabetes symptoms.
Remove inflammatory foods.
The gut environment is negatively influenced by foods that cause inflammation. Minimize consumption or steer clear entirely of alcohol, caffeine, gluten, dairy, soy and sugar.
Do a candida and parasite cleanse.
Candida - or yeast - overgrowth is common when your gut health is compromised, and it can lead to a number of vague symptoms. Parasites are also very common, which can drain you of energy and affect your gut health, too. Under the supervision of your doctor, consider doing a detox or cleanse to rid your body of these toxins.
Add the right supplements.
Gut health can also be enhanced using the right supplements. Probiotics help to restore beneficial bacteria and enable the body to digest food more easily. Enzymes also help in food assimilation and keep the gut from working so hard.
Get tested for food intolerances or allergies.
If you're suffering from food allergies, your gut can never repair itself so long as you're eating the offending food. If you have chronic gut issues, it's worth getting tested for sensitivities to things like dairy or wheat.
Achieving gut health is long-term process, and it can take time to repair years of damage. As always, if you're Continue reading

A Simple Plant Kills Up To 98% Of Cancer Cells – And Stops Diabetes

A Simple Plant Kills Up To 98% Of Cancer Cells – And Stops Diabetes

written by Dr. Frank Shallenberger
I’m always looking for natural substances that throw a “monkey wrench” into the peculiar metabolism of cancer cells. It’s vital these substances kill cancer cells and leave normal cells untouched. I’ve told you about some of my discoveries in the past. They include resveratrol, green tea, Seanol, and others. But today I’m going to tell you about another plant that safely starves cancer cells as efficiently as a powerful chemo drug. In fact, it even works on pancreatic cancer cells, which are particularly difficult to kill.
This plant is a common vegetable from Asia called “bitter melon.” It is popular among the long-lived population of Okinawa, Japan.
Bitter melon juice diluted to just 5% in water showed remarkable potency in severely damaging all four pancreatic cancer cell lines researchers tested. The bitter melon reduced the viability of two cancer cell lines by 90%, while it knocked off the other two lines by a staggering 98%. And it did so after just 72 hours of treatment!
In the past, I’ve told you about apoptosis. That’s nature’s way of dealing with wayward cells. They simply kill themselves. Bitter melon juice induced this programmed cell death along several different pathways. And even better, it also activated a pathway, which shows that it knocks out the cancer cells’ metabolism of glucose. In other words, it literally starved them of the sugar they need to survive.
Do these lab dish studies apply to living animals? A resounding yes! University of Colorado researchers gave mice bitter melon at doses easi Continue reading
