In my latest column for Sputnik International I waded in to the argument about the cost of Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes which experts are saying is going to bankrupt the NHS. However, It seems to me the solution is simple we need to change Dietary advice to favour a Low Carb High Fat Diet.
I started my column by talking about my personal experience……
As a type 2 diabetic in remission I have been saying for at least a year that Type 2 Diabetes and obesity will bankrupt the NHS unless dietary advice is changed immediately and it now looks like I am bang on the money.
The headlines yesterday and today scream that the cost of diabetes prescriptions in England have soared to over a BILLION a year, nearly twice as much as ten years ago. That is 11 percent of all prescriptions.
There are at least 3.2million people diagnosed with diabetes in England. The number of prescriptions issued has risen by 73 per cent, from 31million ten years ago to 53million today. Prescriptions are likely to have outstripped the growth in new patients because diabetics are now more severely ill than they used to be.
Did you know that the annual spend on the treatment of obesity and diabetes is greater than the amount spent on the police, the fire service and the judicial system combined?
So, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a nutritionist to work out that there must be something wrong with the advice does it?
