Animation and Diabetes

Postby Charles » Fri Nov 05, 2010 9:40 pm

Is there a connection? I don't know. Chances are if you're sitting in one place all day long, get little to no exercise, and indulge in a diet that consists of fructose, you're a prime candidate for developing diabetes at some point in your life.

The reason I'm bringing this up has to do with what I experienced earlier today.

At the Hilton Hotel on the Universal Studios lot, top medical doctors from around the world were attending a convention there. It had to do with diabetes and insulin resistance. At one point, I was roaming around one of the massive banquet halls they have where many presentations were on exhibit dealing with scientific research into this phenomenon. Reading through the jargon is like trying to decipher a foreign language, but one thing was very clear in virtually every presentation I saw. And that is this...

Fructose is very much contributing to the increase of diabetes in societies around the world, and it is also a factor regarding insulin resistance.

High fructose corn syrup is in almost everything we eat and drink in the US and it's spreading around the world. There's a campaign by the corn industry to rename it "corn sugar" or "corn sweetener" in an attempt to disassociate or downplay the fructose aspect from this product, but changing what it's called won't change what it will do to your body.

So take the word of the top diabetic specialists on planet earth, and consider fructose sweeteners a potentially toxic substance you're consuming. You can fight it with exercise and drinking plenty of water. Read the labels of what you eat and drink and change your diet. And don't forget to exercise. And drink plenty of water to wash that stuff from your system. And exercise. And draw. And exercise.

Keep creating in good health.
