Without immediate action there will be millions of people around the globe diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
This will strain the health care facilities of all countries, including the United States, and we, the public, will have to bear the burden of caring for those impacted by Type 2 diabetes. Unless we work on prevention, we will not be able to meet the medical expenditure related to the complications of Type 2 diabetes without sacrificing the quality of care and research into other medical conditions.
Something must be done. Now.
To help educate and motive the public to take action against this epidemic that will crush the well-being of our society, I have written an “Open Letter to the Public” that will be printed in the following newspapers during the period of Oct 23-28:
- Houston Chronicle
- Atlanta Journal Constitution
- Los Angeles Times
- Chicago Tribune
- Boston Globe
- San Francisco Chronicle
- The Australian
- The Toronto Star
- The Washington Post
This open letter aims to educate as well as motivate the general population and endocrinologists to take proper action against Type 2 diabetes. The current solution, proposed by diabetes experts, is based on the assumption that Type 2 diabetes is the result of “insulin resistance.” This is WRONG. Once we recognize, as I propose in the Open Letter, the true cause of Type 2 diabetes, only then can we formulate the correct strategy to teach the public how and why prevention and even reversal of diabetes can be accomplished.
But it starts with you, right here, right now. Once we abandon insulin resistance as the cause of Type 2 diabetes, we can be far more effective individually and collectively to create social change around the dietary habits of people around the world.
I urge and beg you to take one of the two following actions:
- Visit one of the newspapers listed above, read my open letter, and SHARE IT with someone, anyone, then ask them to SHARE IT.
- CLICK HERE to read and download the open letter as a JPEG. Then share it on social media.
Type 2 diabetes has reached pandemic levels. Together, we can stop it.
