I thought this was an interesting read that many here at Kalpa would benefit from. I'd be interested to hear what folks here think about it. Enjoy

Edit: This admittedly is a long read. Ive read it twice now and have found it to be an excellent primer on the role of insulin in our bodies, and why decreased sensitivity to it (through faulty diet) is at the root for so many diseases and even aging itself.

I highly encourage you to give it the time I think it deserves.

Be well.

Great read.

Don't buy upgrades, ride up grades.

The body will only do what the mind allows it to do.

I watched a Nova segment on PBS last night that focused on centenarians and what is so different about them that they live so long. Their findings are very similar to what Rosedale talks about....... some smoke, some don't, some drink some don't, etc. But a common thread is that they have low insulin levels.

They also have high HDL levels. Not only that but many of them have a modified genetic structure that relates to the size of their HDL molecules ...... theirs oftentimes are significantly larger than average. It was theorized the larger molecule could better process more LDL molecules.

And while some are seeking a drug that could cause the same affect, others were talking about modifying their diets (carbs) to reduce insulin levels as that was thought to impart very similar benefits.

Be well.
