Topic: Carbohydrate Sensitivity and Metabolic Corruption - What does this mean?
We're now starting to realize that
Carbohydrate Sensitivity is at the core of virtually all diseases. This
Sensitivity to Carbohydrates leads to a metabolic breakdown of our
Metabolism and Carbohydrate Intolerance. Our body's ability to assimilate Carbohydrates is Overwhelmed, and our
Health, Longevity, and chance at becoming a "Centenarian" are in Jeopardy.
We see this with the results that doctors, and institutions are geting when nutritional ketosis is used in therapies. 2016 was a breakthrough year for this kind of information and much of the work is coming from outside the US. We have our share of brilliant minds, but the NIH and USDA are a bit Slow on the Uptake. We are still dealing with the takeover of medicine by the chemical industry back in 1917. (Note 1,2) (1,2,3) The Chemical Industry, something Rockefeller (1,2) started in the 19th century. This same practice went on in Europe with I.G. Farben cartel - BASF, Bayer, et al. (5,6)
Natural foods are Non-Patentable that is the problem. Industry could not make money from natural foods. Ex. Heart disease was practically unknown prior to WWI.
(2,4) The chemical industry had excess capacity to make chemicals after WWI and - hence we got patentable
Fertilizers and Drugs. (Irony 1)
Nutrition was forgotten! Ref: ... this site Cholesterol - Fats and the Centenarian Diet

Commercial foods are professionally designed to maximize reward, because reward is precisely what keeps you coming back for more - "Sucker".

Metabolic Corruption by Carbohydrates
Sugar Consumption vs. % Population Obesity
Hypothesis, from this chart it is indicated that there is more to the story of
Obesity over the last 60 years. This could be a case of the
Compounding Effects of Epigenetics. There have been 4 generations of
High Consumption of Carbs - Beyond a Metabolic Tolerance this defines
Carbohydrate Intolerance. We know that diet can change our gene expression through
The data is indicating that there is a threshold, 10kg/22lb per year/person, and of above this the body does not seem to be responding well to this dietary environment. Also, besides
Obesity, there is a
corresponding increase in diseases from Metabolic Syndrome and Inflammation.

After all, insulin is not designed to
Control Glucose, it is a growth hormone and regulates fat storage and growth.

Using glucose, an inherently "dirty" fuel, as the body's main fuel, is a mistake. It generates far more reactive oxygen species (ROS) than fat and ketones. But in order to burn ketones, the cell must be healthy and normal. Cancer cells cannot burn fat, and this is the heart of successful cancer treatment, and why ketogenic diets appear to be so effective. They essentially starve the cancer, while nourishing healthy cells.
Conclusion: the human animal was never intended to metabolize glucose/glycogen in large quantities, instead we metabolize and store fats. Insulin is a very weak hormone and just barely can regulate 100mg/dl in our blood. Fat-adaptation is the normal, preferred metabolic state of the human body. Sugar-dependency is an abnormal metabolic state that inevitably leads to insulin resistance and chronic disease. (16,16a)
We suffer from to much carbohydrates, hence, Carbohydrate Intolerance and Metabolic Corruption | contributor february/2017. Being able to mobilize and oxidize stored fat during exercise can reduce an athlete's reliance on glycogen. This is the classic "train low, race high" phenomenon, and it can improve performance, save the glycogen for the truly intense segments of a session, and burn more body fat. Ref: ...

- Ironically, all that was needed was to stop processing grains. White flour and white sugar could be shipped and stored for month, thus improving shelf life.
Nothing would eat it, as no nutritional value was left.Convenience can be a down fall with unwanted side effects, and not always the best solution. Ref: ... the Obesogenic Diet, and ... the Centenarian Diet.
- Our own FDA (1) (Some are calling it
Fraud and Death Administration) which is supposed to protect its citizens, is influenced by Big-Pharma and The Chemical Industry, something Rockefeller (1,2) started in the 19th century. In the early 20th century the U. S. Supreme Court found John D. Rockefeller guilty of corruption, illegal business practices and racketeering. (3) These institutions had become missionaries of a new breed of companies: the manufacturers of patented, synthetic drugs. This same practice went on in Europe with I.G. Farben cartel - BASF, Bayer, et al. (5,6)
The discovery of the vitamins was a major scientific achievement in our understanding of health and disease. In 1912, Casimir Funk originally coined the term “vitamines” from the Latin vitals (vitally important) and
amines (organic derivatives of ammonia). The major period of discovery began in the early nineteenth century and ended at the mid-twentieth century. (20) The puzzle of each vitamin was solved
through the work and contributions of epidemiologists, physicians, physiologists, and chemists. We all know the discover of the cure to
Scurvy, and Vitamin C, also, beriber (B1), (21) rickets, pellagra (B3), and xerophthalmia as specific vitamin deficiencies. Many Nobel Prizes came out of the research on vitamins, there discovery, isolation, synthesis and structure. (22)
