Wheat has an almost sacred and "holy" image in human nutrition...reference the New Testament...and I almost hesitate to remind you of that. (Not that it bears any resemblance to the grain consumed 2000 years ago!) Is it really the source much chronic illness as this author continually reports?

Grape Seed Extract Superior To Blockbuster Diabetes Drug, Preclinical Study Finds

Grape Seed Extract Superior To Blockbuster Diabetes Drug, Preclinical Study Finds | naturopath | Scoop.it
A study shows that Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins are as effective at reducing elevated blood glucose (hyperglycemia) and elevated blood insulin (hyperinsulinemia) as Metformin, and that adverse changes caused by a diet that provokes insulin resistance were reversed by Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins more effectively than by Metformin. By Contributing Writer Sayer Ji
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Grape seed antioxidants, known as proanthocyanidins, have been shown to reduce elevated blood sugar and insulin as effectively as the diabetes drug Metformin, without the side effects - and with multiple other benefits for health.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

This study reveals another benefit of turmeric and its active ingredient curcumin - and here it doesn't even need to be absorbed to convey benefits. The typical Western diet change gut bacteria to harmful species, and it also alters key enzymes that result in a "leaky gut", allowing toxins from these bacteria into the circulation. This results in inflammation that eventualy causes chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Curcumin present in the gut helps restore the integrity of the gut wall, thereby moderating this cascade of events from the typical Western diet...

Dairy is considered a major cause of the acne epidemic and other more serious chronic diseases in the Western world. This is because of the mammalian postnatal signalling system - meant to promote rapid growth in the newborn - caused by widespread cow milk consumption.
