SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN ARTICLE CLAIMING SURGERY CURES DIABETES.

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN ARTICLE CLAIMING SURGERY CURES DIABETES.

The July, 2017 Scientific American Magazine featured an article about how Bariactric surgery cures diabetes. They invited comments and I couldn’t let the opportunity pass without a rebuttal. Below is my comment. You can check the next issue to see if they printed it or not.. Re, Scientific American July 2017, p. 61. “Operation: Diabetes.” There is a much, much easier way to “stop diabetes.” Most type 2 diabetics can normalize their blood sugar and reduce or eliminate their medications in 3 days with a…

STORIES FROM THE CRUISE

We had a very large group on the low-carb cruise this year; I’m not sure what the actual count was, I heard it was 275, but that may have included a few who never actually made it. We made national news when one of our speakers was removed from the ship before it left the dock. My daughter here in Washington knew more about it than I did until I got home.

I’ve been enjoying getting back to normal life after turning in the manuscript for “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” There will be more work to do once it gets to the editing stage, but for now I’m getting caught up on all the things that I’ve neglected. (I finally put back the living room furniture that we moved out to make room for the Christmas tree–not this past Christmas but the one before!)

(I wrote this post on January 16, but was so busy getting out the door that I neglected to post it. I’m home again, but still catching up. More soon…) To Mexico, of course. At least 6 bloggers will be on the low-carb cruise and perhaps without access to a computer. I’m excited about the opportunity to meet some of the leaders of the low-carb movement, share ideas, and learn as much as I can. I’ll be taking lots of notes and pictures, so I…
