There was a link in a discussion by a new person recently. The link claimed they could cure diabetes.
I listened to it all and got a clue to it. It is IGF-1 which is a human growth hormone. This is the same hormone that athletes take to make their performance better. It also makes one younger by making the cell of the body better. When we are young we have a lot of it, as we age it becomes less and less. It does affect blood sugar in a positive way as he said. The problem with it is when too much of it is taken, the liver, heart and other organs grow extra large. This is very bad. The guy in the link
was selling a shake mix that he claimed caused this IGF to increase in the body and thereby cures
diabetes. I suspect that to keep diabetes cured, one must continue to drink the shakes every day.
What are the consequence of drinking these shakes every day. I don't know, but I am not willing to
risk my health finding out. If you Google IGF you will find this information from many respected scientific sources. Nature knows what it is doing when it doesn't keep this growth hormone at high
levels as in our youth. Mother Nature knows best in my books. That is the story.
