I will not even get into his other ridiculous claims except to just mention them here.
– Fung claims blood sugar control is useless
– Fung claims that insulin as a treatment is not only ineffective but harmful.
– Fung claiming he cures diabetes is a disgusting lie that causes harm in and of itself.
– Fung claims to reveal the ‘ancient secrets’ of low-carb and fasting… he’s a snake oil salesman.
Read “Fung I” for a full description of his lies and deceptions and why I say… he is harming people.
In closing, I have ‘bashed’ the ADA for promoting an A1c of 6.5 as being ‘good’ for diabetics. Many low carb / paleo / ancestral leaders have as well. Yet Fung gets a free pass.
I waited to post negatively about Fung, hoping others with MD, PhD or other credentials would do so… they have not.
If your mother, brother, sister or daughter was receiving such harmful advice from a ‘diabetes educator’ … we would all be ranting about the ridiculous advice. And I am now."
After some exchange of views after this post was published on twitter, Steve clearly did not want to discuss the issues in a meaningful manner (twitter is no place for a full debate). Steve tweeted this. Looks likes end of conversation to me. My opinion counts for nothing, that's cool with me, but Steve's opinion is set in stone and clearly does not want his views being questioned.
