I often sit around and wonder WHY people are so obese, and the quality of the food. They also automatically link diabetes and obesity, when I know plenty of young women who developed diabetes as teenagers and were thin (dancers, and physically fit). I question a lot of the studies on obesity, because they rarely ever focus on food and food additives as a link to obesity. Maybe it isnt the obesity but something that is in the food some chemical that "obese" people tend to eat more. Are these links also shown in normal weight woman with high BP? or normal weight females with diabetes (my aunt is beyond thin and has had diabetes since she was in her early teens)?
The article leaves a lot of unanswered questions, but the reoccurring theme of the article is that they say constantly it could affect, of may be the problem, yet nothing definitive. I am not going to worry about something that isnt definitive.
Typically when the young develop diabetes it is Type I Diabetes. This is an immune response that effect the pancreas leading to decreased insulin production. Type II Diabetes is developed as you age and/or are overweight (it also has a hereditary component). This is a type of insulin resistance. You make insulin, but your body becomes resistant to it. Meaning it cannot be utilized as well.
High blood pressure can be diet/age related or hereditary. So people who are young/fit have high blood pressure and it is usually hereditary. This is the dangerous kind because most donít know they have it.
...yes but my point was that it didnt specify as to what type of diabetes. Type I runs in my family. Type II is linked to obesity, but they should really specify, because not all diabetes is linked to obesity and they always make it seem as if it is
I'm supposed to get worked up over them viewing ONLY a thousand cases? That is not nearly enough IMO to prove anything one way or another.
I know they're not saying it is proof, but the article just shows myself that they still don't know what the hell causes autism.
I'm so not getting worked up over this
