There’s an old game in the medical profession. It’s called pin the tail on your genetics, and a new study did just that. New research claiming abdominal fat may cause Type 2 Diabetes asserts that there’s a causal relationship that exists between a genetic pre-disposition to higher waist-to-hip ratio adjusted for body mass index and increased risk of Type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease.

It’s old news according to earlier Harvard research, that insulin resistance is to blame for Type 2 Diabetes. Insulin resistance means the body’s muscle and liver cells don’t respond adequately to normal levels of insulin, the hormone that carries glucose into your body’s cells. When glucose levels in the blood rise, this heightens the risk for diabetes. Thus, confirming the fact that abdominal fat is not because of genetic disposition.

It’s Not Your Fault

With processed foods enticing and addicting our palates at every turn, eating crap has become America’s national bad habit. The processed food industry has hijacked our palates using three highly addictive weapons – sugar, salt and wheat. These habit-forming ingredients make withdrawal from processed foods range from mild to unpleasant. Withdrawing from processed foods leaves us with physiological symptoms of discomfort such as cottonmouth, coated (furred) tongue, thirst, bad breath, headaches, lethargy, nausea and false hunger pangs.” (EAT! – Empower. Adjust. Triumph!: Lose Ridiculous Weight)

In an effort to avoid discomfort we continue to feed ourselves to satisfy cravings with the wrong food and the wrong nutrients further stressing our organs and ultimately our immune systems. This habit is what lays the groundwork for fatty liver and ultimately Type 2 Diabetes and coronary heart disease.

Don’t Eat The Wheat. Why? It’s Spoiled.

One known cause of the takedown of America’s livers is toxicity. America’s food is doused in Roundup – a popular herbicide made by Monsanto. The Journal Nature confirms this with their causal study that proves feeding low doses of Roundup to rats are associated with marked alterations of the liver.
