Death by Sugar

Sugar = Diabetes Dr. Dean May 2019

I’m finally finishing Death by Sugar that I began writing in 1990.
That book got me where I am today.
When I talked about writing the book on a Canadian national TV show I set off a firestorm in the sugar industry. I guess it was because I spooned out 10 tsp of sugar into a dish to indicate the amount of sugar in a soda and 27 tsp for a milkshake.
Such blatant exposure of sugar compelled a Canadian sugar lobby group to attack me through The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The College, of course, is supposed to protect the public from harm, not protect an industry that is harming the public. But we all know we’re living in an Upsidedown World.

Dr. Dean made a 74-minute video in 2018 Diabetes is Reversible – with Magnesium, etc.

Gary Taubes in his book The Case Against Sugar (2016 Amazon $3) wrote the following history of sugar and diabetes:

  • In 1890, Robert Saundby, a former president of the Edinburgh Royal Medical Society, estimated that less than one in every fifty thousand died from the diabetes. William Osler, the legendary Canadian physician often described as the “father of modern medicine,” in his Principles and Practice of Medicine (1892) reported that, of the thirty-five thousand patients since the inception of Johns Hopkins Hospital, only ten had been diagnosed with diabetes.
  • By 2012, one in every 7-8 adults in this country had diabetes—12-14%. Another 30% are predicted to get diabetes at some point during their lives. Almost 2 million Americans were diagnosed with diabetes in 2012 – one case every 15-16 seconds. Among U.S. military veterans, one in every four patients admitted to VA hospitals suffers from diabetes.

Diabetic Epidemic

  • Step back to 1994. Suppose an epidemic struck the United States, causing blindness, kidney failure, and leg amputations in steadily increasing numbers.
    Suppose that in less than a decade's time, the epidemic had victimized one out of every eight people
    That epidemic is real, and its name is diabetes, now the nation's sixth leading cause of death.
