Is This Drug GIVING You Diabetes?
Man, oh, man… diabetes is a big racket for Big Pharma.
They’re making BILLIONS selling diabetes medications (none of which, by the way, cure diabetes).
Now, guess what they’ve done?
They’ve found a way to make money by GIVING you diabetes, too!
One of the top-selling drugs around actually increases your chances of diabetes by a whopping 37%.
Scientists say they can’t believe it.
I can. In fact, I’ve been warning about it for years.
A recent study, published in the European Journal of Endocrinology, found that taking antibiotics (penicillins, cephalosporins, quinolones, and macrolides) increases the risk of diabetes.
Here’s an overview of the results:
- Two to five courses of penicillin increases the risk of diabetes by 8%, over five courses increases risk by 23%.
- Two to five courses of quinolones increases risk of diabetes by 15%, over five courses increasedsrisk by 37%.
Why is this?
Antibiotics destroy the microbiome (that collection of microorganisms living in your digestive tract).
In the last year, major studies have shown the microbiome helps with digestive complaints (like diarrhea and constipation), digestive conditions (like IBS and Chron’s disease…), and almost every condition which has inflammation at its root (like autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, mood disorders, joint pain, asthma, etc.).
And, yes, the microbiome affects blood sugar control and weight loss.
To control blood sugar, it is in your best interest to keep your microbiome in tip-top shape.
Let me show you how.
Dr. Scott’s Keys to a Healthy Microbiome:
- Start with food. Eat a low-sugar, non-processed food diet (this will also help with your weight loss efforts). Eat as many vegetables and low-sugar fruits as you can.
- Eat as much fiber as you can. I prefer fiber coming from vegetables whenever possible. Fiber helps support healthy microbiome communities.
- Eat fermented foods. My favorite fermented foods are sauerkraut, miso, and yogurt because they all contain healthy bacteria you need.
- Take a probiotic. The only way to make sure you are getting enough healthy bacteria is to supplement.
Health and Happiness,
