Diet, Drugs and Diabetes – One Hundred Years of Missed Opportunities

Dr. John McDougall presents “Diet, Drugs and Diabetes – One Hundred Years of Missed Opportunities” at the Advanced Study Weekend, September, 2011, in Santa R…


  1. To continue your logic hala bala plant food can never be a sufficient source of omega 3's or b12's for that matter. Whoever is a strict vegetarian better take supplements to make up for the deficiencies that inevitably will come eventually from vegetarianism. Eat a little fish periodically and stay healthy or eggs- a superfood!

  2. From this face to diabetes! I'm fighting it! I'm becomming a vegan!

  3. Lots of American doctors are crooks! I don't listen to this guy!

  4. The main problem in diabetes is the fat in the cells and not the blood sugar levels.

  5. One thing I know is that eating carbos makes my diabetes worse, even if they are good whole grains. I like Dr Eli Wallach's theory that Diabetes is caused by a mineral deficiency. He swears by it!! Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been the root cause of many many diseases. A study done on mice proved that they were totally deficient in chromium and supplementing only chromium cured their diabetes!

  6. Diabetes is caused by excessive carbohydrate intake. PERIOD. When your body has the failure to properly handle carbohydrates why on earth would you give it more. Especially starches like potatoes and rice. Look at Asia and India now leading the world in diabetes. Even Japans rate is rising very fast. All these countries are eating a ton of white rice. India has the highest type 2 diabetes rate and has had so for a while. A large portion of India is vegetarian due to their beliefs (they consume no red meat and very little chicken. Indians live on lots of beans, lots rice, lots of bread and lots of noodles, dairy products like butter and ghee. Basically a high carbohydrate diet. And before anyone says that its the dairy causing the diabetes you are ignorant. Look at countries like Sweden and France who eat tons of dairy and tons of fat and have little very little heart disease and lower diabetes rates. Even Swedens own government gets it and is telling the people to eat more fat and less carbs. 200 years ago in America the average person ate around 5 pounds of sugar per year. Now its up to almost 160 pounds PER PERSON per years. Thats nearly half a pound a day. And people think its the meat and dairy. All while saturated fat has dropped by 11%. Animal fat consumption has dropped (everybody is eating skinless chicken breasts and low/no fat dairy because the government has scared them into doing so) and grain & sugar consumption has skyrocketed. This guy thinks humans are "starchivores" (as he says). SMH at the ignorance.

  7. Same old story Nathan Pritikin was preaching back in the 70's. Too much of anything in the diet is bad, including some of the carbs McDougall recommends. Actually McDougall's diet made my diabetic condition a lot worse. This doctor claims food can cure almost anything. I am so sick of hearing about his past life on the sugar plantation. Everything is anecdotal with McDougall. I know many thin diabetics. Do not listen to this doctor. His diet made my A1C levels go up. McDougall should be ashamed. His diet can be downright dangerous for some patients.

  8. Hi Carbs? This is clearly another bought & paid for whore-doctor for the agri-community. Doctor Idiot!

  9. +Nancy Capps You See What l ReaIize ls That The Entire MedicaI Profession… Both From An Academic And A Corporate Standpoint… Was Pumping BilIions Of DoIIars Into Ways To Keep Diabetics Like You And Me On Life Support.,,,

  10. Where do we get these comments. These doctors are far few in between, but I guess people like to eat their high fat protein diet.

  11. I was off the charts w/ readings of over 500 - I followed McDougal's recommendations and have normal blood sugar levels now -it took a few months but it worked. The weight did fall off - I do miss meat at times but my health dictates my choices.

  12. About 6 months ago I was diabetic until I stopped dairy and poultry. I doubt anyone could love meat more than I. Within a month I lost over 60lbs by eating strictly vegetables and starches. Just recently I went back to eating meat and dairy. Within 2 weeks my weight and blood sugar climbed rapidly. I don't need any more proof that food choices make the difference between good health and poor health.

  13. I feel worried about constantly checking blood levels as the former diabetes patient assumed I would undoubtedly die with diabetes

  14. +Haguo Daean *Because they know that eventuaIIy diabetes always wins… and whether it’s tomorrow or ten years from now… your body will begin breaking down… and you’Il come crawling over to them with open palms… while they give you needles to push into your stomach… or pilIs to stuff down your throat ==>*

  16. Appreciate video content! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you tried - Sayerdsan Level Sugar Secret (should be on google have a look)? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my buddy at last kissed good bye to the annoying diabetes issue with it. 

  17. It's a must to heal the main cause of diabetes to end the disease recurrence for a lifetime.

  18. Before trying harmful drugs, the needles, you should consider some all-natural treatment solution for diabetes.

  19. All the indigenous people that worship the potato season. worship it for a reason.

  20. *==>> In fact, a 2007 study in the New England Journal of Medicine linked the diabetic medicine Avandia to a 43 percent increased risk of heart attack, and a 64 percent higher risk of cardiovascular death, compared to patients treated with other methods! ==>>*

  21. 26;32 sugar makes diabetes better as long as no fat no protein of animal and dairy product i believe?....

  22. ln a nationwide study by the Diabetes Prevention Program, simple diet-and-Iifestyle changes beat the pants off the leading glucose-lowering drug (metformin) — performing TWICE as weIl as the medication!

  23. +Faisa Saran That the $245 biIIion– yes you heard me $245 BILLION a year diabetes pharmaceutical industry is desperately scrambling to try and suppress. And if it seems like I’m trying to make them out to be the boogy man, well, I am, and they are, because this cure – yes, I said cure – would destroy the business model that’s making them billions off this terrible disease...

  24. *There is new research out for people with Diabetes… thousands of people like you have effectively treated their condition permanently and without drugs! And while modern medicine is failing miserably, this new approach is achieving 100% success in getting patients completely OFF diabetes meds and related drugs — and back to a healthy, normal life.*
