The top 3 factors which contribute to diabetes are:
- Foods which convert to sugar. Twenty years after you introduce white sugar or white flour into a society, you get an outbreak of diabetes. Fructose is the worst. White flour contains oxalic acid which is a poison to the beta cells of the pancreas. Wheat can increase insulin resistance.
- Animal fats from (cooked) animal food like meat and dairy.
- Toxins, like herbicides, pesticides and heavy metals have their effects as well. Mercury poisons the beta cells of the pancreas and deactivates insulin. Fluorine causes insulin resistance. Cadmium affects the kidneys and causes insulin resistance. Lead causes insulin resistance. Arsenic causes hormonal disruptions which also causes insulin resistance.
Other factors which contribute to insulin resistance are smoking and caffeine. Each of them increases insulin resistance with 30%.
