A report in the New York Times says that diabetes rates are rising, along with obesity, all over the world. I wonder how long it will take people to figure out that the cause is the absence of nutrition in food? When I was taking care of my mother over the last three years of her life, I started feeding her good, healthy food. Her sugar dropped from 140 to somewhere in the 110s and she went off almost all of her medications. It was enough nutrition to maintain - but not enough to rebuild her body. Foods in the early part of the 1900s had up to 7.5 times more calcium, , 8.2 time more phosphorus, 1.8 time more copper, 28.5 times more magnesium, 58.3 times more iron, 49.0 times more iodine, and at least 10 times more of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.  (from Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, by Weston A.
