You may have heard that blindness is on the rise in the U.S. But you might not know that diabetes is now the leading cause of it.
Diabetes is a complex disease. It affects the whole body. And if you get it, chances are multiple doctors will want to treat you. They’ll try to fix everything from your vision to your brain to your heart.
If you’re concerned about blood sugar levels, there’s a tropical, flowering tree that you need to know about.
One little seed packs a powerful punch. Infomercials have made it famous for something other than its nutritional value.
A brand new study – just released in medical journal Cell – shows that dietary fat can combat some of today’s worst diseases. But that doesn’t mean any old fat is good for you. It’s vital that you eat the right kind of fat. And avoid the “bad” kind.
That’s because dietary fats either combat – or trigger – a biological process that may be the root cause of many of today’s most dangerous illnesses.
Scientists believe that a cure for diabetes may be on the horizon.
Dr. Christian Stohler, Dean of the University of Maryland, has reviewed that “cure.” And he calls it a “paradigm-changing” discovery.
"The treatment and diagnosis of [diabetes] is poised to take a dramatic leap forward because of this research," says Dr. Stohler.
As we reported on Tuesday, Dr. Hans Michael Dosch is leading research on the project for the University of Toronto.
