Do you worry about getting breast cancer? How would you feel if you knew your daily doses of bread, pasta, sugar, alcohol and pastries could allow cancer to develop? This is exactly what 12 independent studies have shown. Why do cancer rates including breast cancer continue to increase? Are you or your loved ones eating yourselves to death?
High-normal blood glucose is a leading cause of disease and premature death overlooked by mainstream doctors today and the average person working to maintain their health. You may be buying organic produce, exercising and not smoking cigarettes and you think you are doing a great job at staying healthy, taking your vitamin supplements. Most people fail to realize they are still setting themselves up for disease and possibly cancer. The Standard American Diet contains too many starches and simple sugars, while our overburdened livers synthesize too much glucose by a process called gluconeogenesis.
80% or more of the US adult population has increased blood glucose levels shown to be in the dangerous zone and that number continues to increase every year. Most of these people are not diagnosed diabetics but simply have blood sugar considered by most physicians as normal! Fasting blood glucose levels (over 85 mg/dL) are shown to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by a whopping 40% in a long-term study conducted on almost 2,000 people. This and other studies show that even in otherwise healthy human beings, those with high-normal glucose are at increased risk of vascular related deaths and cancers of all types. Published studies document that people with high blood sugar levels are at much higher risk for diseases.
Diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in the US and will take down our health care system as we have a nation of overnight and obese individuals who require a lot of expensive health care in the form of drugs, hospitalization, surgeries and nursing care. As our system gets burdened with these rising levels of health problems there is a shortage of doctors and nurses. Older people are not the only ones with serious health risks many young people are developing diabetes including children!
The Chart below illustrates the damage done to your body when glucose levels are higher than optimal ranges. (The optimal fasting glucose level is under 86 mg/dL).
INCREASED HEALTH RISKS IN PEOPLE WITH “NORMAL” GLUCOSE LEVELS
RISKS IN PEOPLE WITH “NORMAL” GLUCOSE
Conditions Glucose Level (mg/dL) Increased Risk!
Developing Type II Diabetes 100-104 Up to 283%
Stomach Cancer 95-105 Up to 130%
First-time Heart Attack Above 88 242%
Need for Coronary Bypass
or Stent Procedure Above 95 73%
How can I improve my blood sugar levels? Eat fresh whole foods, more vegetables, berries and meat, while restricting your intake of carbs, i.e., bread, pasta, pizza, white potatoes, deserts, potato chips, fast food and alcohol.
By inhibiting intestinal absorption of carbohydrates, suppressing excess production of glucose in the liver, and improving glucose utilization in tissues through enhanced insulin sensitivity. The following supplements have been shown to help support healthy glucose levels. Chromium, lipoic acid, and green tea extract. If you have high fasting blood sugar levels see qualified health practitioner for assistance.
Go see your doctor and ask to get your fasting blood sugar levels tested. Modifying your diet and supplement plan today could save your life, money and prevent a lot of suffering and decreased quality of life. Younger people need to learn about to live a healthy lifestyle while still young and healthy.
