I enjoyed this story on Dr. Briffa's blog. Dr. Briffa is a very inspiring doctor who is an avid low-carber and he works tirelessly to get the truth out. He also has a podcast. Dr. Briffa points out the obvious facts about diabetes before insulin was discovered. Doctors realized people with diabetes cannot process sugars and starches, so they eliminated those substances from their patients' diets. Nowadays that golden rule is forgotten .... and it is really in my opinion bordering on criminal to keep foisting the wrong diet on people who need not be suffering and can live normal, long, healthy lives if only they can be presented with the truth and the tools to do so.
