When we think of malnutrition, we think of hungry children in third-world nations, not something which occurs here in the USA of America. However, America ranks third behind China and India with this epidemiological type of malnutrition, known as .

Comprendiamolo

You may be confused by this reference to diabetes as a malnourished state, once nearly all individuals with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese, and in no-way resembling the gauntly thin pictures of hungry children from third-world nations. But the reality is that the kids in America, in addition to the adults, are seriously malnourished and will succumb to death and disability before their time due to diabetes. There are two basic forms of malnutrition: 1) protein-energy malnutrition, which is typically considered a lack of protein and calories, and 2) micronutrient (vitamin and mineral) lack malnutrition.

Nel caso del diabete di tipo 2 nell'America di oggi, questa definizione di malnutrizione si adatta perfettamente. Anche se il diabete di tipo 2 è spesso considerato una sovrabbondanza di energia (calorie) che ha contribuito a diventare sovrappeso e obesi, si tratta comunque di una malnutrizione "energetica". Il corpo è gravemente squilibrato. Ma oltre a soddisfare i requisiti per questo tipo di malnutrizione, il diabete soddisfa anche i requisiti per il prossimo tipo di malnutrizione, perché il diabete e la sua disfunzione metabolica possono anche essere collegati a carenze di micronutrienti.

Vediamo...

This outbreak of malnutrition (aka: diabetes) is huge, with 29.1 million Americans reported to have diabetes according to the 2014 National Diabetes Statistics report, released by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Ninety to 95 percent of individuals with diabetes have type 2 diabetes, with 5% to 10% having type 1 diabetes. Overall, 9.3% of the American people (or 1 out of 11 people) has diabetes. Even scarier than this amount is that 8.1 million or 27.8percent of individuals with diabetes (1 out of 4) do not even know they have it.

Pre-diabetes, thought to occur before the actual diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, influences 86 million people in this state (or 1 out of 3 adults). Nine out of 10 people with pre-diabetes do not even know they have it, and will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years if lifestyle changes aren’t made. Both pre-diabetes and diabetes may cause serious health complications, such as disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, loss of toes, feet or legs, and a slew of other health ailments, such as fatty liver, apnea, sexual dysfunction, depression, hearing loss, gum disease and much more.

Lo sapevi?

Questa incidenza di malnutrizione negli Stati Uniti Il diabete non è più considerato una malattia della genetica. Si pensava che il diabete è stato 80 per cento il risultato della nostra genetica e 20% a causa di ambiente, ma ora sappiamo che è veramente il contrario. Il diabete è attribuito 80 per cento dal nostro stile di vita e dintorni e solo 20% a causa della genetica. Nel corso del tempo, il nostro ambiente e i nostri stili di vita sono cambiati radicalmente, con la sovrabbondanza di cibi elaborati e veloci, prodotti carichi di pesticidi, carni provenienti da procedure di allevamento istituzionalizzate, stili di vita stressati e inattività.

Although we are a country of food abundance and obese, we’re a nation of malnourished individuals. Our soils are less likely to grow nutritious crops which are then sprayed with pesticides causing the disruption of human cell membranes and cell function. Consequently, we’re not able to fight these foreign attackers because of our deficiencies and compromised immune systems. Our meat resources are institutionally farmed, fed with genetically-modified (GMO) corn (leading to our elevated blood sugars and insulin resistance) and pumped with hormones to make them larger and more profitable.

Nota finale

Additionally, institutionally farmed animals are injected with antibiotics to decrease the infections they get from being in close quarters and the disorders that result in their unnatural diets. Antibiotic resistance now is rampant in our , and kids are going through puberty earlier (and growing diabetes)–something which wasn’t seen when our meat resources were rather pasteur-raised and their ottenuto da foraggio a foglia verde naturale, ovviamente senza ormoni e antibiotici.

Our processed and fast foods are full of sugars, additives and artificial ingredients which are deficient in micronutrients, damaging to our individual cells and promote insulin resistance and inflammation. And we to the processed soup mix, our considerably stressed lifestyles, poor diets, lack of sleep, overweight and inactivity, and “bon appétit”: we’ve cooked ourselves up an inflammatory stew, wreak havoc inside each cell of our body, resulting in inflammatory conditions like diabetes: America’s malnutrition. By the year 2050, 1 out of 3 Americans will have become malnourished and developed diabetes. Is it you, your friend or loved one? Allow me to help you avoid becoming a statistic.
