Pure White & Deadly: Does Sugar Kill and Cause Disease?

I stole the title “Pure White and Deadly” from a book by John Yudkin that was written in its first edition in 1972. The subtitle is “The new facts about the sugar you eat as a cause of heart disease, diabetes and other killers”.

Understand that this man wrote this book in 1972 and updated it in 1986. He did not know about high fructose corn syrup so all of his work was based on sugar. This man predicted all the increase of disease thirty-nine years ago. I think this is astounding.

This seems overly simple, but the solution to curing disease is to stay out of your doctors’ offices and stop eating sugar. Obviously, stopping high fructose corn syrup is first, because HFCS has made the diseases worse since John wrote this book. In addition to eliminating HFCS, we must also limit fructose from fruits, because they are just as deadly as HFCS if eaten to excess – fructose is fructose.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is also worse because it is made from Genetically Engineered corn and one of the manufacturers of HFCS uses a caustic soda containing mercury. This is in 25 % of all the HFCS.

I know that a bunch of mamby pamby people and others who are the dominions of big business are going to say, “We have got to let the people enjoy themselves and we can’t take sugar off the market because it would not be fair.”

Folks, what is fair?

I don’t think 6 month old babies who are obese is fair.

I don’t think 6 year old obese children who become type II diabetics before they are teenagers is fair.

I don’t think a 48 year old male or female diabetic on dialysis is fair. He or she may be stupid, but it is not all his or her fault, because of the industrial food manufacturers that want him or her addicted to their products just so he or she will spend money on their products to satisfy the stock holders income potential; and if it kills them, they could care less.

It is also not fair that a diabetic consumes about $57,000.00 per month on dialysis from the taxpayers along with other expenses from drugs, doctors’ visits and hospital fees for the heart disease and other conditions that go along with kidney failure.

I don’t think coronary heart disease is fair due to diabetes.

It is not fair that Peptic ulcer, Hiatal hernias, Gallstones and Crohn’s disease are mostly caused by sugar.

There is evidence that myopia/nearsightedness is caused by sugar, HFCS and poor nutrition in the food. Dental decay is caused by sugar. Seborrhea dermatitis diminishes if you lower sugar. There is some evidence that acne improves sometimes with less sugar. Gout is caused by sugar. Liver disease is, in part, caused by sugar and is definitely caused by HFCS. HFCS will cause obesity and cause swelling in the livers of normal people. There is a link to cancer from sugar. Even if sugar doesn’t cause cancer, there is evidence that sugar causes cancer cells to multiply and spread more quickly.

Sugar also has an effect on maturity and longevity and it messes up the normal bacteria in the gut that decreases our immune system causing more colds and flu.

I guess the question is “should we ban sugar and HFCS – or as the industry now calls it “Corn Sugar”.

We can’t ban sugar because people have the right to screw up their lives, but there has to be something that we can do. It is not right for healthy people who try to eat healthy, that they should pay the medical bills of people who don’t care if they live or die and eat crap daily or feed crap to their children.

The first question I think of is, “Can we make corporations responsible for the disease they create”? Our government is so corrupt that they are not going to make corporations do anything that might lower their bottom line in business. The FDA allows drug corporations to kill and disable people just for profits. Also, is there a way to make corporation develop integrity? The only way that comes to mind is to stop buying their unhealthy, sugar-laden products.

Another way to solve the sugar dilemma is taxing all sugar, high fructose corn syrup and all artificial sweeteners. If we tax consumption before and during the disease process, the only people paying the health care bills are the ones who become sick. If we could trust the government to not spend the money on our military industrial complex (They did spend social security monies on the cold war ICBM boondoggle and never replaced the money), then the people would be paying for their disease before they got sick.

The corporations that use and make sugar, HFCS and artificial sweeteners will have conniption fits because they will say that just a little bit, or used in moderation, will not hurt anyone. The problem is like the old Frito Lay commercial for potato chips – “bet you just can’t eat one”. There is no such thing as a little bit or moderation. Sugar, HFCS and artificial sweeteners are used in everything. If you buy corporate industrial food, almost all the products are contaminated. There are only two solutions for unhealthy, processed food. Don’t eat it in the first place or tax the crap out of it to pay the health care bills. The people not eating this stuff should not be taxed in any way.

Remember, this one word that has to become the watch word for human beings and the world – BIOACUMMULATION. It is not that a little bit hurts. It is that a little bit here and a little bit there keeps building up to a whole lot. A whole lot kills and disables.

Remember to read labels, don’t eat sugar and HFCS and buy local, healthy food. The closer your food is grown to your home, the better your health will be.

Check out Dr Hustig, MD on his take of sugar and HFCS. It is because of him that I discovered John Yudkin and the book “Pure White and Deadly”.

Why are Doctors killing us?

 

I had a pharmacist in the office yesterday and we discussed what is wrong with health care and what is wrong with the Obama “Sick Care” plan. Some will agree with these ideas and some will not care, but most will agree that the whole system is sick and most likely will not be improved until the whole system breaks the government economically. After the collapse, and possibly violence, we may get a new system that will actually help the people.

We are a country of extremes. When something gets bad, the people get up in arms and the powers-that-be make adjustments. The public does not think the government would allow any corporation to harm them, so if something unhealthy happens, the public expects the government to solve the problem.

I hope I am getting your attention because there is something wrong – your health – and at this time your government doesn’t care and your doctors don’t have time to care.

The single biggest cause of poor health and disease today is sugar and high fructose corn syrup. They are causing heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cholesterol, triglycerides and degenerative diseases.

When a patient goes into his or her doctor and the doctor says you are pre-diabetic or diabetic and if you follow the instructions that he or she or a dietician give you, you can lead a normal life (they do not say at this time that sugar, HFCS and diabetes alone will shorten your life by 9 to 20 years). You must come back regularly and follow a diabetic diet and take these medications. They don’t mention that, after years of the pills and continued eating of sugars and HFCS, the diabetes will probably get worse and you will need to give yourself a shot of insulin one to two times per day for the rest of your life. They also do not mention that if heart disease is not present at this time it will be shortly after the diabetes starts.

Your doctor will not be callous at this time and thank you for the money you are going to put into his or her pocket, but he or she knows that you are going to be responsible for paying over $300,000 before you die. This money will pay for office expenses, but a lot of this will go to the new BMW’s every couple of years, the doctor’s kids’ new cars and, of course, the doctor’s $750,000.00 house will be in the best of neighborhoods.

 Doctors are not stupid or they would never have made it through medical school, internship or residency. I also venture to say that most doctors really do care, but the problem is time and money.

When you show up with pre-diabetes, doctors know that, at this juncture, it is possible to change your life and prevent becoming a diabetic.  Unfortunately, they also know most people don’t give a hoot and will not change their life style. With this in mind, the doctors are not going to waste their time telling you to stop eating sugar and HFCS (I know this is over simplified but it is still true).

The most important issue is that even if the doctor cares and tries to advise the patient to do the right thing, the doctor is not getting paid to give you good advice. They can’t pay the bills advising people to do the right thing (this applies to heart disease, cancer and every other disease) and so the easy way out is to give you the diet, the prescription and tell you to return in a few weeks to check your blood sugar level and adjust your medications. In the case of heart disease and cancer, they get you into surgery and post-op treatment.

Hopefully, you are asking how we can fix this problem, but the problem is that no one wants to fix it because everyone is making massive amounts of money and as long as the cash cow – our government – is willing to pay, the system will never change.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the day of reckoning is coming soon.

The amount of people with diabetes, the new diabetics from the baby boomers and now the children with diabetes is going to break the government “bank”. There is no way the government can continue to tax the people for diseases that are preventable, empire building in other nations with our military and giving foreign aid to countries that is spent on the lavish lifestyles of their leaders. There is a point coming soon that the people will rebel and refuse to pay more taxes.

Health care has got to change to real prevention and not lip service to prevention. Medicine/drug corporations try to make the public believe that keeping you from dying quickly while prescribing massive amounts of expensive drugs is prevention. Unfortunately, the government (politicians who are bought off by Big Pharma) has bought this misguided health care system hook, line and sinker. (I just could not stop myself from using the fishing term.)

What can we do to change the coming disaster? Make no mistake – the system will fall apart before it gets better.

You have to decide if you want to help yourself before the collapse or wait for the government to try and fix the problem; however, you may be dead before there is substantial change.

  • Demand that agriculture change from chemicals to sustaining practices. We know that there is too much money being made by corporations to change, so you have to take responsibility for yourself and your family.
  • Doctors must be paid for preventing disease and penalized monetarily for “sick-care medicine”.
  • We have to stop “food” manufacturers from deceiving the people with toxic ingredients like HFCS, sugar, MSG, Equal and hydrolyzed vegetable proteins. If you want to avoid early death, you will have to take care of yourself and your family as food changes will not happen until after the collapse of “sick care.”

Your future and longevity at this time depends on you and how willing you are to help yourself and your family. I would like to think that there will be no disaster or collapse, but we are on a collision course and I don’t believe anything will stop it. Diabetes will trigger the change.

I don’t believe doctors are killing us on purpose or that they are altogether uncaring, but the system is rigged against them and us, the people. Ralph Nader and Sydney Wolfe, MD group estimate that doctors, nurses, hospitals and drug corporations kill 400,000 people a year and disable another 400,000 people each year.

Should we tolerate this or just write off the fact that millions of people are dying before their time. Are you going to be one of these early deaths that also run out of money before the end and have to live in poverty?

America does not have a shortage of doctors, it has an excess of disease

I took this title from Mike Adams “The Health Ranger”. My spin is a little different than Mike’s, but he and this title are correct.

I contend that we did not get a health bill but a sick bill. The idea of the bill was to bring 40,000,000 people into the system who were not officially covered by health insurance. This is not quite true, because if these uninsured people showed up on the doorsteps of a Parkland-like hospital in Dallas, TX, (substitute free clinic/hospital name in your area), they would get their babies delivered for free, emergency appendectomy, hernia repair, heart treatment, etc. free.

What these people did not get free was antibiotics for their flu or cold (which is not the correct treatment anyway); they did not get statin drugs for high cholesterol to prevent heart disease (cholesterol does not cause heart disease but statin drugs are a billion dollar income source for drug corporations and they cause many health problems including death); they did not get drugs for many diseases that are nutritional disorders (so they don’t have massive drug side effects and other complications).

I have a friend who has “good benefits” from her job and her husband’s job. The doctors have no idea what is wrong with her because they have her on 22 different drugs. No one should be on 22 medications. Her doctors are incompetent. The 40,000,000 people are fortunate that they don’t have these benefits, but our “sick care program” will take care of them in the near future so that these poor, unfortunate people can have the same advantages of my friend – the system is going to kill them and, at the end, the doctors will just say, “We did our best but medicine can’t cure some things”.

Medicine can’t cure squat. Heart disease is worse than 50 years ago and it is getting worse. Cancer was 3 % of deaths 100 years ago and now ranks as the number one killer; 50 years ago it hardly showed up in children and, today, it is the fastest growing cancer in this nation. Type II diabetes did not exist 100 years ago and now it is rampant. Eighteen years ago, autism was found in one of every 10,000 kids and now it is one out of every eighty or so kids.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Modern medicine is fantastic when it comes to emergency health care but a dismal failure when it comes to everyday health of the people. The US is about number 50 in the world – many third world nations have better health than we and we let our corporations go into these countries to “help” them. Our corporations (drug, chemical, industrial food manufacturers, etc) are just exploiting them so they are raped of money and their health decreased to our level.

As Mike says in his article, if we improve the health of the people we will have an oversupply of doctors and not a shortage.

How can we do this – improve the health of the people without using drugs and surgery. Mike’s suggestion is to give every person, man, woman and child a free supplement of vitamin D 3 everyday (dose adjusted for size), and I agree that this would really help, but it is not enough.

My suggestion is to go to the next step in preventing disease. Stop or reduce all sugar and high fructose corn syrup. One hundred years ago the average person ate 6 pounds of sugar per year and there was little disease. Today, the average person eats 175 pounds of mostly high fructose corn syrup every year and all disease is rampant. Most of the sweeteners that people consume are not their fault as they don’t know they are eating or drinking this toxic poison. They don’t understand that this causes high blood pressure, cancer, heart disease, obesity, type II diabetes, degenerations and depressive conditions. People don’t realize that “food” corporations put these sugars into food to make them addicted to drinks and processed foods just to make money and if the people get sick or die along the way “the corporations don’t care”.

I know this is not an easy task and will not happen overnight, but we have to have goals and we need to get rid of doctors with the sorry excuse “we don’t know what caused your poor health”. They don’t know because they don’t know or they don’t want the people to know so they can continue making massive amounts of money.

Reducing sugar is a goal and difficult to do, but in the meantime, lets tax the “devil” out of all products with sugars and high fructose corn syrup and put the money into the new “sick care” program. If I eat little to no sweeteners to be healthy (and consume vitamin D 3 and sunshine), why should I have to pay for the people with poor health. I am suggesting that people who consume sweeteners pay an inflated tax to pay for their illnesses in later years and those of us who want to be healthy do not have to pay their bills.

Taxing sugars and HFCS in food will be easy to administer and collect, but can we trust the government to put the money in the right fund. I doubt this as they stole money out of Social Security to pay for the Cold War and ICBM’s – a war that was started by our military industrial complex – look at President Eisenhower’s warning in 1960.

Remember to take care of yourself because the government and our doctors will not do it for you.
