I like John Briffa, despite him committing the worst sin a Doctor can make, he writes books. If you are a lowcarb anti, and there a plenty about, writing books is a cardinal sin. I have lost count of the times I have read “He’s only in it for the money”. This has applied to Doctors Richard Bernstein, Malcolm Kendrick, Jay Wortman and others. How dare these people publish what they believe to be the truth. Let’s make no mistake, these are very daring people ! They have dared to go against the monumental power of big pharma, junk food companies, and many of their peers. They dare to question poor science and dogma that has failed miserably.
What should we do ? Go back to Nazi Germany days and burn books written by Jews, or others, no matter how brilliant. Do we castigate men and women who have the courage to rock the boat, to put their head above the parapet ? In my opinion these people are great educators. In my opinion great educators makes us think. They make us ask why ? Now, when you ask yourself why ? You may ask yourself the question, why am I told to eat the foods that raise my BG numbers. You may come to realise high BG numbers are dangerous, and can only be controlled with drugs and medication, or a complete change in lifestyle and diet. You may come to realise, drugs are not a get out of jail free card, and side effects are many. After four years of research, I have yet to find a downside of a standard meat and non starchy three veg meal.
Check out the John Briffa blog here.
Good news then Eddie; John is indeed a friend to diabetics, and a low carb advocate who is not afraid to 'rock the boat' of conventional opinion, simply because he derives an income from his writing, and so is not dependent on any NHS income.
For those of us who are highly critical of 'Pharma's' motives and products let me recommend a fearless and voiciferous campaigner, Prof David Healey. Please read his blog and his book 'Pharmageddon' he deserves our support; http://davidhealy.org/blog/.
Good health to you and yours and your diabetic friends.
Low Carb Good News Just Goes Marching On And On And On...........
That's Great News..............

Thanks for the link BD we don't have much faith in the big pharmas especially when it comes to diabetic drugs.
" Go back to Nazi Germany days and burn books written by Jews, or others, no matter how brilliant" ... Godwin's law anyone?
