Guest: Dr. Brian Mowll
Easter Sunday is just around the corner.
It’s the time of year when supermarkets strategically line their checkout counters with chocolate covered bunnies, marshmallow peeps, and of course my all-time childhood favorite…
Cadbury creme eggs.
A delicious holiday blend of milk chocolate, vegetable fat, emulsifiers, sugar, glucose syrup, invert sugar syrup, and other weird stuff that surely sent my blood sugar on a wild ride.
And that’s why it struck me as odd that while reading Michele Simon’s book Appetite for Profit I learned that Cadbury Schweppes — maker of the creme eggs and other sugar bombs at the time of the author’s writing — was a strong financial supporter of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
While I understand that the money has to come from somewhere, there should be some kind of rule against the ADA accepting money from candy pushers.
I’ve been itching to have a diabetes expert on the podcast to get his or her take on this funding fiasco. This week, we finally got it.
And not only that…
My guest, Dr. Brian Mowll, and I also discussed an another incredibly important topic. Why Alzheimer’s disease is being called Type 3 diabetes.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
* How poorly regulated blood sugar contributes to plaque buildup in the brain.
* How you can have normal blood sugar and still have insulin resistance in the brain.
* Why overweight diabetics live LONGER than normal weights diabetics.
* MORE processed food companies funding the American Diabetes Association.
