Podiatrist Dr. Richard Jacoby states, "a recent Stanford University study found the more sugar in a population's food supply, the higher the rate of diabetes, independent of obesity rates. "We don't need to have this level of disease."
Doctor Richard Jacoby knows what too much sugar can do.
"Sugar is considered the number one culprit in cancer disease, as well as diabetic neuropathy, cardiac, and stroke," Dr. Jacoby said. The silent killer comes camouflaged in other foods as well. "Wheat, bread, any grain is sugar," Jacoby said. Those foods trigger an insulin response in the body leading to weight gain. "Six to eleven helpings of grains a day, that's absurd. That's why we are all diabetic. I recommends a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids and oils, grass fed meat and veggies."
