Dietary guidelines need to be up-to-date and ethical!

diet-choice-622x414I stumbled across an article a few days ago – this article hasn’t found its way into the mainstream media as far as I can tell – which highlights that new government dietary guidelines in the USA have been criticised for failing to take into account some crucial research findings. Deliberately omitting some research to satisfy corporate lobbyists means that the nature of the new guidelines is quite different from any that would have been penned had the ignored research actually been taken into account.

This is a huge story – and a scandalous one – especially for our American cousins! It blows open the conflicts of interest between public health and big business, revealing why mainstream dietary advice is seriously flawed, and will stay that way. Research that has been bought and paid for by the pharmaceutical and food industries has been included where independent academic research has been ignored in the process of devising the new dietary guidelines, which will directly affect the diets of tens of millions of American citizens, as well as food labelling, and education.

These new guidelines will stay in place for the next 5 – 10 years or so it can be reasonably assumed – during which time research will have advanced further, leaving these guidelines woefully outdated and biased.

It’s times like this I am so grateful not to be a part of the NHS (or any other) machine, and thus having the independence to give ethical, researched nutritional advice to RebalanceDiabetes clients, putting them before any corporate interests – be it the food industry, pharmaceutical industry or even governments. That’s advice which IS based on bang up to date research evidence – such as a study just about to be published, which shows that people with Type 1 diabetes are more likely to suffer mineral deficiencies, notably chromium, zinc and magnesium.

How long will it take for this information to filter through the mainstream medical channels to the very people who need it? Who knows? But the good news is that I’ve found it for you, and you simply don’t have to wait to be able to take advantage of these new findings. Right now today you can start to use the kinds of foods in which these vital nutrients are found.

In case you need a little help to identify which foods they are, let me be of further service:

Chromium:

  • Shellfish
  • Red meat
  • Liver
  • Egg yolks
  • Cheese
  • Molasses
  • Brewer’s yeast
  • Mushrooms
  • Whole wheat

Magnesium:

  • Whole grains
  • Nuts
  • Millet
  • Molasses
  • Pulses / legumes
  • Soya beans
  • All green vegetables
  • Shrimps & seafood

Zinc:

  • Seafood (oysters)
  • Popcorn
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Whole grains
  • Pulses / legumes
  • Sardines
  • Beef

Doesn’t it feel good to know you’re ahead of the game?

Well of course you could REALLY be ahead of the game and take advantage of the new online version of The RebalanceDiabetes Programme: creating a personalised nutrition and eating plan for yourself, all based on the very research that the US government guidelines have failed to take into account.
