My favorite quotes from the article…

“Diabetes is a disease of carbohydrate intolerance.  Reducing carbohydrates is the obvious treatment. It was the standard approach before insulin was discovered and is, in fact, practiced with good results in many institutions. The resistance of government and private health agencies is very hard to understand. For many people with type 2 diabetes, low-carbohydrate diets are a real cure.  They no longer need drugs. They no longer have symptoms. Their blood glucose is normal, and they generally lose weight.” – Barbara Gower, Ph.D., professor and vice chair for research in the UAB Department of Nutrition Sciences.

“The low-fat paradigm, which held things back, is virtually dead as a major biological idea. Diabetes is too serious a disease for us to try to save face by holding onto ideas that fail.” – Richard David Feinman, Ph.D., professor of cell biology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
