Get rid of your tummy!

Postby susannah755 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 1:26 pm

I found an interesting article which explains what insulin resistance is and what it does to your body - mainly extra weight around your tummy which increases your chances of becoming diabetic. This article is easy to understand and gives guidelines on how to reduce your risk of becoming diabetic and how to get rid of "love handles".

Wheat Belly
Over a half decade ago Professor Jared Diamond, in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Guns, Germs, and Steel, famously wrote

“The adoption of agriculture, supposedly our most decisive step toward a better life, was in many ways a catastrophe from which we have never recovered.”

Dr Diamond was referring, of course, to the devolution of human health that took place as mankind suffered the corporal transformation driven by the mismatch between hunter-gatherer genes and an agricultural diet and lifestyle. Smaller stature, decreased cortical bone thickness, obesity, increased incidence of infectious diseases, dental caries, periodontal disease, vitamin deficiencies, and even famine – all common in agriculturists – were not, for the most part, the lot of pre-agricultural man.

I agree totally with you Perfesser. Any number of articles are available on the internet which examine the impact of "agriculture" on native people who, for generations had none of the "modern diseases", until they adopted the agriculture based diet. The introduction of "processed" food has further contributed to many "modern" diseases.

Dental care is the forgotten part of a healthy lifestyle. But while its importance is often underestimated, the need for regular dental care can not be overstated. Our set of teeth will last us a lifetime with the proper preventative dental care. For the HIV positive patient, regular dental care is not only to maintain the health of your teeth but also your entire body. Poor oral and dental health can result in serious infections of the mouth, the teeth, and the entire body.

I really enjoyed reading Wheat Belly, and am on the hunt for old fashioned non-modified grains to grow small amount myself for house use, won't help the mass's but will help my own little family..
