In 2011 having realized that scientific fraud was the norm for industry funded work and their key opinion leaders (KOLs), I restarted a new grouping of articles.  The three key areas of focus are medical myths, the harm down by the Western diet, and what to do about it.   All those with a “/r” (for “recommended”) have been posted since 2011.

Solving the mystery of what has gone wrong with the western diet.  One piece is the under production of collagen given that it is by far the most common type, of which at least 27 various are produced, is causal for the conditions associated with the western diet (CAWD).  Another issues is that diabetics and those insulin resistant have problems in the polyol pathway through the coenzyme ascorbate, and this causes conversion of glucose to fructose (the most reactive of sugars, a bad thing) and excess production of sorbitol stored in tissues.  This also contributes to the major cause of the comorbidities associated with type-2 diabetes and by extension the insulin resistant.  High level of insulin and other factors cause the underperformance of the house keeping (healing) processes including autophagy, and this  leads to accumulation of atheroma in artery walls and in the brain tau protein and beta amyloid that are causal for Alzheimer’s disease and other major forms of dementia.  Fructose also is converted to uric acid, and in excess this too is pathogenic.  These issues are the Chapman’s Homer for the problem of what is causing not just obesity and diabetes pandemics, but the CAWD.  Therein lies the answer to why those populations on a low sugar diet (not western diet) have very low rates of our age related conditions.  More research is need to understand the pathogenic process and the best dietary fix for those who haven’t lifelong had a low sugar diet, namely those who are insulin resistant.  (Chapman wrote the first English translation of Homer, and thus made Homer accessible—so wrote Shelly.)

Pharma is happy with the effects of the high sugar/fructose diet, known as the western diet. Pharma is happy treating the pathologies causally associated with this diet, which results in a dysfunctional weight-regulatory system, elevated insulin (insulin resistance), uric acid, and serum sugars, low ascorbate and under production of collagen.  Collectively the resulting health disaster is known conditions associated with the western diet.  Those conditions are virtually unknown among peoples who are life-long on a low sugar diet—and this includes cancers, ischemic events, arthritis, and dementia.  

What follows are articles on how fructose, a very reactive sugar, is a slow toxin,  One method of cellular damage is by attaching to amino acids in proteins and compromising the functions of the proteins.  When consumed in sufficient amounts long-term, fructose overwhelms the cellular repair systems.  The US average is about 140 lbs. of sugar (half is fructose) yearly, from all sources, and half eat more than the average.
