The more I write these sections, the more I realise that every form of degenerative illness
is on the increase, and the more it all links in to the perils of the modern environment.
The popular accepted version of why there is a huge increase in diabetes is that there is this
enormous increase in the consumption of sugar and that the pancreas becomes exhausted and ceases
This surely must be part of the story as the consumption of sugar since the 19th Century has risen
from 8lbs a year per person, to 90lb a year per person! Over eleven times as much sugar is being
eaten as one hundred years ago!
However, important though this angle undoubtedly is, I feel it may be only part of the story.
Minerals particularly involved in sugar metabolism are Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese and Zinc.
Chromium and Cobalt are particularly used up by coping with alcohol as well as sugar.
Manganese deficiency is usually mainly down to organophosphate pesticide (OP) contamination.
OPs may well be more involved with the development of diabetes than is normally acknowledged.
It is interesting (and sad) that dogs are now found to be developing diabetes.
Their noses being at near ground level, and much sniffing being done, it could be that pesticide
use in fields and parks is contributing to this. Flea drops and flea collars may also be
playing a part.
OPs are used on much/most non-organic fruits, vegetables and grains. They may not only be in the food
we eat, but may be carried on the wind where crops have been sprayed, and will also be carried on
wind borne pollen, such as rapeseed. Beware of garden sprays, fly killers and so on.
Unless care is taken when buying things OPs can be in carpets, furnishing materials, bedding etc.
These can be called moth-proofing, bedbug prevention, fire-retardant and so on!
They are in anti-lice shampoos and in the drops put on the backs of the necks of pets, and in anti-flea collars.
These can give children and pets epilepsy.
Zinc deficiency may also contribute to diabetes, although it is not so obviously involved.
The most usual causes are heavy metal contamination, over-high copper in the tap water,
use of the contraceptive pill, smoking, alcohol, other drugs, infections, surgery, stress…
Any toxins the body has to eliminate.
It is not yet known at all whether electromagnetism has made any contribution to the increase in diabetes.
We know that exposure can prevent sleep, so we know that it can affect the brain, causing malfunction.
I feel that research into whether it affects other organs of the body equally/more/less is long overdue.
Can anybody ”Out There” give us any information on this?
Meanwhile, it seems the best way to protect the unborn, particularly if there is diabetes in your family,
is to do the full Foresight programme, plus be very much aware of sugar intake and limit it sensibly.
Also eliminate all pesticides from your environment as quickly as you can!
Make sure you optimize levels of Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese and Zinc, also Vitamin B complex and
essential fatty acids. Monitor these before and during pregnancy and while breast feeding.
This should also minimize the chances of your getting gestational diabetes.
