Growing Diabetes: Agriculture’s Role in Chronic Disease

Chances are, if you asked a room full of people for a show of hands if they either have Diabetes or have a loved one or friend affected by the disease, the overwhelming majority would raise their arms up high. A recent report from the CDC indicates that 30 million people – nearly 10% of the U.S. population – are living with Diabetes and approximately 24% are undiagnosed but symptomatic. These numbers are mainly indicative of Type 2 or Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM), which accounts for nearly 95% of all cases. NIDDM, which results in cellular insulin resistence whereby cells don’t receive necessary glucose needed for energy, can be prevented and often reversed through proper weight management and healthy eating behaviors. In contrast, Type 1 or Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) accounts for only 5% of cases and is a genetic, autoimmune disorder that destroys the cells responsible for producing insulin – the hormone that ushers glucose into the cells for metabolism. The result in both cases is an excess of glucose in the blood stream, compromising the vascular system and inducing an inflammatory state that negatively impacts all major organs, especially the heart. Heart disease is the number one killer for those with Diabetes, which is why early management of the disease is critical.

The main culprit? An excess of simple carbohydrates in the diet.
