Just noticed this article on CBC this morning regarding the sky-rocketing increase in diabetes in Chinese Canadians.
"Diabetes incidence rose 15-fold between 1996-2005 among Canadians of Chinese origin despite lower levels of obesity."
So, the advice we are given?
"Dr. Jan Hux stressed the appropriate action is to pursue a healthy diet that
includes whole grains rather than refined grains, eat lots of fruits and
vegetables and control portion sizes."
Of course, why didn't I think of that?
Another article recently published is that Liver Cancer in Canada has tripled in men and women since the 1970's. Is that when we really actively started the healthy lifestyle, seed oils instead of saturated fat, lower meat consumption, more healthy whole grains, more sugar, more carbs, more exercise? Blaming it exclusively on Hep B or C or whatever shows they haven't a clue.
