Sugar; America’s Worst Addiction,

Confessions of a Reformed Carboholic

Sugar, I love it. I grew up loving it. Because I grew up loving it, I’m now addicted to it. It’s an addiction that was forced upon me by our food industry, telling my mother that she had to make refined and whole grains the most prevalent food in my diet. She fed me this food, supposedly, to keep me healthy. Aren’t whole grains supposed to make you healthy? That was 60 years ago. I’m paying the price for that now, with my arthritis. I was paying the price for it just 30 months ago, by carrying 30 lbs more than what I carry right now and being borderline diabetic and in pain all the time. I’m about to debunk this myth that whole grains are healthy. There is a price to be paid for eating a (starchy) carbohydrate diet and you’re paying it with every sandwich you eat, every corn chip you munch, and every noodle you eat.

My sisters are paying the price for it now, also. They are both obese and diabetic. My father has always exercised to keep his weight down. He’s was always able to burn off the excess glucose, until he was about 35. Even though he’s always jogged every day, since I was in 7th grade, he couldn’t run away from this. After being borderline diabetic he couldn’t change his downhill spiral. He’s now taking an anti-diabetes drug which has several side effects that are initially so small that they aren’t noticed but after time, start to inflict other harm to the body, due to the effects of the chemical changes caused by the medication. His carb diet is starting to lead him down the same path as my mother, who passed away 4 months ago. My mother, in trying to be the best mother and wife she could be, went along with what the FDA, the USDA and the ADA told her because she wanted to do what was right for her family. Guidelines from the ADA telling her that grains needed to be at the base of her all of her meals was what drove her to do this to our family. This is what doomed us to our current list of ailments, ailments like obesity and diabetes, arthritis, cancer, stomach ailments galore, and now, side effects from treatment for those ailments. It all comes along with a carbohydrate diet because all carbs break down into glucose. Even yet, MyPlate.gov suggests that whole grains be a part of a healthy diet. The evidence I’m going to show you is completely contrary to this notion.

Because sugar addiction is America’s biggest addiction, that makes it, its worst addiction. It’s an addiction that everybody grew up with and into. It’s an addiction that’s been with us for as long as we’ve been eating it. It’s an addiction that’s become far worse than it’s ever been since we’ve been eating it over its 10,000-year history. It’s an addiction that’s built scores of empires, and then tore them all down. This addiction is far worse than any other addiction that plagues America. Whether it be today, yesterday or tomorrow, this addiction is the worst that Man has ever faced or may ever face. This is simply due to its propensity to expand its influence across the whole world. It’s also driven by the greed of those condemned to this addiction. Their desire to feed their own addiction drives them to impose this addiction on the rest of the world, simply so they can make an extra buck. This addiction is at the root of almost every known form of dementia, heart disease, diabetes and everything that comes along with that, like cancers, cardiovascular diseases. The list is endless because sugar’s worst instigator of inflammation, AGEs, or glycation is at the base of an arm-long list of disorders.

All of these disorders can be curbed simply by curbing carbohydrate consumption but addiction keeps this from happening. That’s why fighting this addiction, in particular, is so important. It’s life-saving at its simplest, just remove contaminating factors from the food source and the diseases cannot manifest themselves. The contaminating factor in this case? You guessed it, sugar. Sugar addiction is leading our society to the brink of destruction because of the nature of its addiction and what it does to the body. Its continued use only leads to discomfort and death. It’s only redeeming factor is that it tastes good and satiates quickly. This is what makes it so deadly, though.

That’s sad. I have to live with it too. I can’t have what I love, what I’ve been addicted to. I have to say no, to stay healthy. So do you. I know that’s exactly the opposite of what you’ve been told, but what you were told is wrong. For us, it’s dead wrong. It should have never been pushed upon us to eat it in the quantities that it was. But pushed upon us it was. And we bought it. We bought into it big time and we’re paying for it now. This is evidenced by the proliferation of Alzheimer’s disease. How many lives does it have to take, before people wake up? How many families does it have to destroy, before people wake up?

Carbolism Should Be Treated Like Alcoholism

We need clinics for sugar addiction and they should be financed by the food industrial complex that imposed this diet on the people who now suffer the consequences of it. The administration of the clinic though should be done by trained medical professionals, because this is an addiction and should be treated as such.

Is this something that should be investigated? Should an industry be held accountable for the ruse that’s been pulled on the American people, and now the world? The ruse is that this is healthy food when it’s really not. Why are they still allowed to claim that it’s healthy? It’s clearly not, and it’s clearly at the root of almost all of the deadliest diseases, that we’re actively fighting right now. Diseases like Atherosclerosis, Endocarditis and Hypertensive heart disease. That’s just the CVD’s. We haven’t even covered the cancers or diseases of inflammation. Those lists are much longer.

Can anyone tell me why this is still allowed to be advertised like it is today? It starts with what’s put in baby food for starches and fillers and sweeteners. These fillers satiate babies quickly often putting them right to sleep after a short burst of energy. This is the first indication of sugar addiction and it starts at a young age. This is done for a purpose. That purpose is to addict you to its lure, so you’ll buy into it when you’re an adult.

It continues with your introduction to breakfast cereals and the load of sugars they carry when you see them advertised with the Saturday morning cartoons. I can remember for commercials for Sugar Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes, and Captain Crunch. It starts young, real young and continues through your youth with candy and soda, and into your adult years with bread and baked goods (cakes, crackers, cookies).

It’s been forced upon us. Nobody has had a choice in this addiction and that is what makes it so lethal. That also makes it profitable for the Pharmaceutical industry. This is what scares me. The Pharmaceutical industry used to be owned by the same industry the provided the crop seed for the farmers that grew the grain that provided the flour to bake all of those loaves of bread that causing so much disease.

The Perfect Ruse

It’s almost the perfect scam. Sell crop seed to farmers that have been genetically modified to accept enzyme inhibiting chemicals, so that it feeds your customer base, food that will require them, in the future to purchase medications from your other companies. How convenient we’ve made it for this industry to take our money. We should be ashamed.

We would be ashamed if we knew that this was done intentionally, especially if it was done for nothing more than profit. That is why this is something that should be investigated. Regardless of how long it takes, we need to know who is responsible. This is a lesson that cannot be lost, like every other study done on these concerns, we cannot allow this to be swept under the rug. Even if they’re no longer around, we need to hold their companies’ accountable. This is the only way we can prevent this from happening in the future.

For 1,000s of years, we’ve been treating the symptoms of the diseases and disorders that carbohydrate digestion cause. Because of our addiction to it, we’ve never looked at the prospect of eliminating the cause completely. When a whole society is addicted to a staple that they’ve eaten their whole lives, how does one tell the truth about something that is so important to everyone on the planet? How does one tell everyone that what they’re eating is killing them slowly, expensively, painfully, and worst of all, undignified because of all the lost memories from brain damage? How does one tell a whole society that a staple that they’ve lived on for close to 10,000 years has been, and continues to be, the one food that creates more disease and illness than any other one food in their diet? How does a world break their addiction, when the addicted are the majority of the world and only 5% of that population can recognize their addiction?

Dr. Perlmutter is trying to tell the people and continues to do so. I honestly feel that he thinks as I do, that if we don’t dispel the consumption of these foods, our society is doomed. From what I’ve learned since I’ve broken the addiction, I see a collapse, due to out of control emotions, due to the wild glucose swings in the blood, making people under the control of a carbohydrate diet, under the control of those who impose this diet on the American public. It’s in their interest to keep America addicted and the best way they can do this is to tell you that it’s healthy and what you need to keep your body healthy. Only those who want to buy their pharmaceuticals, from them in the future, are ones who should buy their food products now, because, they eventually will.

By following what little advice I offer, to curb your carbs dramatically and as completely as possible, you can dramatically slow down if not eliminate many of the disorders and diseases within these pages. If it can’t eliminate your disease, it will reduce the expression of your disorder. If it doesn’t cure you, it will definitely extend your life. My goal is to extend it a minimum of 20 years. I would like to see everyone live to be 100 years old, or more. I know this diet lifestyle can do that (depending on your age and degree of addiction of course). To know this yourself, though, you have to change your diet.

 

 

A Display of Dependence You Don’t Need


My Thoughts On The Eradication of Carbs From Our Diets

The Eradication of Carbs From Our Diets

This is my favorite post. Every time I dream of a world without carbs, I get to add it to this post. After reading through it, maybe you might have some dreams of your own, that you want to share. Guess what? because this is a blog, you can. you can add any of your thoughts at the end of this blog and I encourage you to do so. Maybe like me, you’ll learn how liberating and enlightening it can be.

There are so many thoughts running through my head, that it’s hard to find a place to start this page on how I feel about getting rid of the carbohydrate diet, that not only addicts everyone to this abhorrent behavior, but causes so much damage to our bodies, teeth, emotions,  lives, relationships both personal and globally, finances, and most importantly, politics, that it makes it very hard to pick a spot to start, so I guess that’s what I must do. Let’s go back the damage it causes to our bodies, teeth, emotions, lives, relationships, and finances.

I said it often in my first post. Carbs, The New Death Sentence, the removal of carbs from the diet and the transition to a diet, higher in fats and proteins, will not only heal a major portion of our population, from most of the inflictions that currently bother them, it will keep everyone healthier and more even-tempered, well into the future, simply because of the lack of sugar in the blood. It’s that simple. This idea of a society that’s not addicted to sugar, is compelling me to dream of the possibilities. I think I need to start a what if, list.

What if:

  • Nobody in the world ate carbohydrates and suffered from the massive sugar fluctuations in the bloodstream, would there be as much violence as there is in the world today?
  • Everybody in the world quit subjecting their emotions to these fluctuations in blood sugar changes, that come with the ingestion of wheat and grain foods, would differences get worked out in a more reasonable way?
  • Everyone broke their addiction to this substance and quit eating it, would the grain industry grind to a halt? (no pun intended)
  • It never showed up in my diet in the first place, would we have the problems we have today? Or would we be further advanced, and more prepared to find other living arrangements for our expanding population, (when the “apocalypse” comes, that was supposed to happen in 2012), on another planet in a galaxy, far far, away?
  • The studies that I’ve encountered in my research, were ever revealed to the public, after their completion, would we still be experiencing all of the problems that we live with today? Problems of crime, terrorism, abhorrent behavior of any nature? If everyone’s blood sugar levels, never went out of whack, Would any of the violent nature that you see in people today, ever exist?
  • It ever got published in any of the popular journals that circulate throughout the medical community, after the research was completed on any of the studies within any of the research I’ve been fortunate to been made aware of, by Dr’s Davis and Perlmutter, would our medical industry be fashioned in a different manner, so as they wouldn’t have to contend with the amount of illness and disease that this food manifests?
  • I was introduced to a diet high in fats and proteins when I was young, how many of the ailments would I not be suffering from, now? How deformed would I not be, or would I be, at all?
  • Society in whole ate a diet high in protein and fats, would our world have to live through so much turmoil?
  • The whole world has been on a keto diet, instead of converting over to a diet of carbohydrates, because agriculture was introduced to our race, when we were primitive, would have all acts of war, conquests, crusades,  rebellions, uprisings, riots, violent crime, violent behavior, and worst of all, terrorism ever taken place? Why? Read here.
  • Due to the lack of outside influence (glucose changes in the blood) influencing behavior and emotional reactions, caused by those fluctuations in the blood sugars, would as many of them have ever taken place? I’m willing to wager that a majority of them would not have, simply because the need for them to take place would have never existed. If our race could have grown on a ketogenic diet, would our culture be as advanced as it is, now? Since it was agriculture that civilized our race, it was agriculture that started our advancement to what we are today. The question I ask now, has our advancement been in any way restricted because of our addiction to a carbohydrate diet? My guess is, yes. It has. It is. And, it will continue to be, until we kill this addiction.
  • The benefit of the whole world being on this diet that doesn’t affect emotional behavior so much, allow emotions to remain much more in tack, making the need for war of terrorism much less necessary?
  • The world has the benefit of being on a high protein and fat diet, as opposed to a high carbohydrate diet, since time immemorial, would it have allowed our culture to develop differently because it would have never had to deal with the amount of illness and disease they cause?
  • If the world were on a keto diet, Would I have ever suffered a severe closed head injury, in the first place? Would the drunk, who ran the red light, that hit the car I was riding in, not have been drunk? Would he have not needed to drink alcohol, because of the better stabilization of his emotions, because he would have been, on a keto diet?
  • If the world were on a keto diet and knew about the sugar problems that alcohol, give you, would there be the problem that we have with alcohol, today? Or would everyone be better able to resist the temptations, alcohol, brings?
  • If the world were on a keto diet, and everyone thought with a clearer head and were more able to keep their emotions intact, would the number of disagreements that happen, be settled in more reasonable ways, everywhere? If that were to happen, what would happen to all the violence in the world?
  • You could track where a majority of violence occurs, would there be a higher volume of sugar in the diet, there? If sugar can affect our emotions so much, If it were removed from the diet in all areas, that experience violence, would the violence still exist?
  • If the world were on a keto diet, what would the medical industry do?
  • If the world were on a keto diet, what would the dental industry do?
  • If the world were on a keto diet, what would happen to the pharmaceutical industry, grain industry, farming industry
  • If the world were on a keto diet, what would happen to the crime rate? Crime is driven by greed and hunger, what would happen if greed and hunger no longer existed, because there are no more changes in our emotional status, caused by the fluctuations in our blood sugars, which are no longer present in the body? What if hunger no longer existed because of our abilities to go longer periods of time between meals, due to the states of ketosis our bodies would be in.
  • If the world were on a keto diet, what would happen to the terrorism in the world? Most terrorism is caused by the need to retaliate, in any violent form or manner. Since there would be no sugar in the blood to influence behavior, we would be more enabled to control our emotional behavior, to the point, that we would be able to settle our differences more peaceably and amicably. This, in turn, would go far to eliminate the need for retaliation, which in turn would go a long way to stopping terrorism. It’s that simple, remove the carbs, remove the emotional disorder, remove the terrorism. It’s that simple. Remove the carbs, remove the violence, it’s that simple. (Thank you, Dr. Perlmutter!)

Keep in mind, these are only thoughts, questions I keep asking myself. Questions that keep haunting me. So it’s my concern, to deal with right now, not yours. Your concern, my only hope is, that you will learn and take heed.
