The Diabetes Epidemic "We now see an alarming number of children and teens with Type II diabetes" Dr Mirkin
... even as young as 2 years old Larry King-Diabetes Panel - May 20, 2005
Maybe certain groups of people are considered at high risk for diabetes because they have typically done cleaning * and menial tasks through the decades that would expose them more to this chemical, 2-butoxyethanol
Lou Gehrig was a 14 lb baby & 3 other siblings died in infancy. His mother cleaned laundry & cooked to make ends meet. They lived in a poor area of New York. What odd jobs did he have?
In Valdez, Alaska since the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup, doctors have seen a lot of high blood sugar leading to kidney failure. My doctor said that they didn't understand why there was such a complication from 'diabetes' (I would call it endocrine disruption from 2-butoxyethanol exposure). I suspect they are dealing with an effect from a chemical which also targets the kidneys and liver. (Autoimmune liver). Still haven't heard that the underlying fatigue is being found, though, not unlike the rest of the nation these past 70 years
Consider: Diabetes may be from a chemical exposure?
What about high blood sugar (or low)? Maybe diabetes type 2 is part of what this chemical causes, as a late appearing 'birth defect' OR with sudden onset after flu-like symptoms - after one's own direct exposure to 2-butoxyethanol. Maybe that is why overweight and Syndrome X (metabolic problems, too?) and kidney failures eventually ... are part of what a chemical exposure does? Maybe we are dealing with a chemical which is targeting the kidneys directly? * That causes many autoimmune problems?
Type 2 diabetes first 'classified' in 1959? Remember "Better living through Chemistry"? Right around 1959......
I know that my mother and I both did cleaning for a living at certain times in our lives.
Medical science has discovered how sensitive the insulin receptor sites are to chemical poisoning. Metals such as cadmium, mercury, arsenic, lead, fluoride[ii] and possibly aluminum may play a role in the actual destruction of beta cells through stimulating an auto-immune reaction to them after they have bonded to these cells in the pancreas. It is because mercury and lead attach themselves at highly vulnerable junctures of proteins that they find their great capacity to provoke morphological changes in the body. Changes in pancreatic function are among the pathogenic mechanisms observable during lead intoxication.
Lead exposure has been associated with an increased risk of hypertension, and is a well-established risk factor for kidney disease. Whether lead affects blood pressure indirectly through alterations in kidney function or via more direct effects on the vasculature or neurologic blood pressure control is unknown though. Researchers at Harvard Medical School state, “Our findings support the hypothesis that long-term low-level lead accumulation (estimated by tibia bone lead) is associated with an increased risk of declining renal function particularly among diabetics or hypertensives, populations already at risk for impaired renal function.”
Cadmium is a widespread environmental pollutant that accumulates
in the pancreas and exerts diabetogenic effects in animals. In a large
cross-sectional study, urinary cadmium levels are significantly and dose-dependently associated with both impaired fasting glucose and diabetes.
Transsulfuration pathways in the body are fundamental for life. When mercury blocks thiol groups cellular proteins lose their reactive properties, lose their ability to carry out their routine function. Insulin has three sulfur-containing cross-linkages and the insulin receptor has a tyrosine kinase-containing sulfur bond, which are the preferred targets for binding by both mercury and lead. Should mercury attach to one of these three sulfur bonds it will interfere with the normal biological function of the insulin molecule. Mercury, many times more toxic than lead, is so dangerous exactly because it is collapsing/damaging critical sulfur-containing cross-linkages which change the geometry of both insulin receptor sites and insulin itself.
Commercials tell children that junk food is good food
- the latest message from an industry that spends
$10 billion a year marketing to children.
New York Times
Food is not considered junk just because of high fat or sugar content, there is a long list of poisonous chemicals used by the food industry that are striking people down. And there are many serious nutritional deficiencies in today’s food that diminish the bodies capacity to deal safely with these chemicals and heavy metals - with magnesium and selenium deficiencies at the top of the list.
For instance, according to Dr. Ellen Silbergeld, a researcher from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, the poultry industry’s practice of using arsenic compounds in its feed is something that has not been studied: “It’s an issue everybody is trying to pretend doesn’t exist.” Arsenic exposure is a risk factor for diabetes mellitus. [x] Inorganic arsenic is considered one of the prominent environmental causes of cancer mortality in the world. Chicken consumption may contribute significant amounts of arsenic to total arsenic exposure of the U.S. population according to the Journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
“Arsenic acts as a growth stimulant in chickens—develops the meat faster—and since then, the poultry industry has gone wild using this ingredient,” says Donald Herman, a Mississippi agricultural consultant and former Environmental Protection Agency researcher who has studied this use of arsenic for a decade. At mean levels of chicken consumption (60 g/person/day), people may ingest 1.38-5.24 micrograms/day of inorganic arsenic from chicken alone. At the 99th percentile of chicken consumption (350 g chicken/day), people may ingest 21.13-30.59 micrograms inorganic arsenic/day and 32.50-47.07 micrograms total arsenic/day from chicken. Arsenic is a human carcinogen linked to liver, lung, skin, kidney, bladder, and prostate cancers. It can also cause neurological, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and immune system abnormalities. The feeding of arsenic to chickens in the United States releases hundreds of tons of arsenic into the environment every year in the form of poultry manure, which is spread on fields as fertilizer.
Researchers from the Department of Internal Medicine, National Taiwan University [xiii] Hospital found, “The association between arsenic exposure and diabetes mellitus is a relatively new finding. Up to now, there are six epidemiologic reports linking diabetes mellitus with arsenic exposure from environmental and occupational sources. Two reports in Taiwan carried out in the blackfoot disease-hyperendemic villages, one cross-sectional and one prospective follow-up of the same cohort, indicate that arsenic exposure from drinking artesian well water is associated with prevalence and incidence of diabetes mellitus in a dose-responsive pattern.
The observation of the relation between arsenic exposure and diabetes mellitus is further supported by studies carried out in Sweden and Bangladesh. In Sweden, case-control analyses of death records of copper smelters and glass workers revealed a trend of increasing diabetes mellitus with increasing arsenic exposure from inhalation. In Bangladesh, prevalence of diabetes mellitus among arsenic-exposed subjects with keratosis was about five times higher than unexposed subjects.”
Doctors are on notice that many drugs have toxic effects that can participate in destroying insulin creation and cell receptivity to it.
In her 1994 book, Poisonous Prescriptions, Landymore-Lim's says that diabetes may in fact be a major side effect of pharmaceutical drugs. The book provides evidence from studies and hospital records. Diabetes, usually thought to be largely a genetic disorder, may actually have increased so much in the last 50 years due in large part to the proliferation in the use, and over-use, of medicines. In 2004 the American Diabetes Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists made a similar announcement warning people to be careful to watch for signs they are developing diabetes, obesity or high cholesterol if they are taking Abilify, Clozaril, Geodon, Risperdal, Seroquel or Zyprexa. What medicines, food and water have increasingly in common are the chemical poisons they contain.
MSG causes a very large insulin response after it is ingested since there are glutamate receptors in the pancreas. MSG opens calcium channels, thus constricting blood vessels – this may put diabetics with high blood pressure at risk by negating calcium channel blocker medication.
Chemical Compounds Restore Normal Glucose Levels and Insulin Action in Obese Mice
For immediate release: August 24, 2006
Boston, MA – Treatment of obese and diabetic mice with compounds that act as chemical chaperones called PBA and TUDCA restored healthy glucose levels and normal insulin action — and reduced the presence of fatty liver disease — according to a study published in the August 25 issue of Science (Science 2006; 313: 1137-40). The work was conducted by a team of researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).
TUDCA and PBA treatment also appeared to interfere with the storage of fat in the liver, significantly reducing the presence of fatty liver disease -- a condition closely related to obesity and insulin resistance. One form of this disease — nonalcoholic steatohepatitis — is associated with inflammation and the creation of fibrous tissue, which can lead to cirrhosis.
PBA has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for clinical use in urea-cycle disorders in humans. TUDCA has been used as a liver-protecting agent in human cholestatic liver diseases.
Tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA) is available here:http://www.discountanabolics.com/p/TL13, (TUDCA) is a drug[a chemical-taurine-found naturally in Bile- that lost it's patent, it expired and no one is researching it, it has been shown to cure several conditions-TypeII Diabetes, and cancer for two.
A bad liver will contribute to a bad pancreas, you remember; the organ that produces insulin.....
“Already used safely in people for some disorders, these compounds and others like them may warrant clinical investigation into their effects on type 2 diabetes in humans,” said Hotamisligil. “If these compounds work in humans as they do in experimental models, they could dramatically change the approaches to treat many components of metabolic syndrome.”
MORE AND MORE WE SEE THE PRUDENCE OF READING ALL LABELS, KNOWING WHAT EACH INGREDIENT CAUSES, WEIGHING THE CONSEQUENCES....

A new hair salon opened up for business right across the street from the old established hair cutter's place.
They put up a big bold sign which read:
"WE GIVE SEVEN DOLLAR HAIRCUTS!"
Not to be outdone, the old Master Barber put up his own sign:

What do angels look like?
Like the little old lady who returned your wallet yesterday.
Like the taxi driver who told you that
your eyes light up the world, when you smile.
Like the small child who showed you
the wonder in simple things.
Like the poor man who offered
to share his lunch with you.
Like the rich man who showed you it
really is all possible, if only you believe.
Like the stranger who just happened to come along,
when you had lost your way.
Like the friend who touched your heart,
when you didn't think you had one left to touch.
Angels come in all sizes and shapes,
All ages and skin types.
Some with freckles, some with dimples,
some with wrinkles, some without.
They come disguised as friends, enemies,
teachers, students, lovers and fools.
They don't take life too seriously,
They travel light.
They leave no forwarding address,
They ask for nothing in return.
They wear sneakers with gossamer wings,
They get a deal on dry cleaning.
They are hard to find when your eyes are closed, But
They are everywhere you look when you choose to see.
When two men in business always agree, one of
them is unnecessary.

If a man is offered a fact which goes against his
instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and
unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse
to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is
offered something which affords a reason for acting
in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it
even on the slightest evidence. The origin of
myths is explained in this way.
-- Bertrand Russell
