Obesity Is Not Economics
Addiction, Weight Gain, and Toxic Exposures are Linked to Neuropathy!
“Daily diet soda consumption is associated with significantly greater risks of two metabolic syndrome components (incident high waist circumference and fasting glucose) and type 2 diabetes in this large, multi-ethnic cohort. These results corroborate findings from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities and Framingham studies and show that stronger adverse associations exist between diet soda and type 2 diabetes. Diet soda consumption, either independently or in conjunction with other poor dietary and lifestyle behaviors, may lead to weight gain, impaired glucose control, and eventual diabetes.” “Weight concerns were associated with increased diet soda intake.” “Artificial sweetener intake, such as those in diet soda, is an indicator of appetitive drive in eating disorders.”
Organochlorine pesticides. From 1991 to 1999 pesticide use in the United States increased over 120%. The pesticide industry is very politically influential with a goal of expanding their income. Unless one eats organic fruits and vegetables, one is continuously exposed to pesticides and herbicides. The most common affect of pesticide ingestion is cancer, poor glycemic control, parkinson’s disease, and the increased levels of toxicity in the brain and nervous system! Sucralose is a synthetic organochlorine sweetener. Pesticides are found to decrease sensitivity causing peripheral neuropathy.
Inflammatory conditions such as alcohol abuse, addiction to diet soda, addiction to smoking, obesity
, eating disorders, ingestion of pesticides, and things that affect the GI tract causing low blood flow, and impaired absorption of essential vitamins and minerals, leads to neuropathy. View Non-diabetic neuropathy
Nutrition is the first line of defense to avoid and reverse many conditions. Some foods to avoid for neuropathy are wheat, gluten, sugar, and diet sugars!
