Nutrition researcher shows killer disease, Diabetes, is reversible with Low-Fat Vegan Diet


A diagnosis of type 2 diabetes is often a grim precursor to heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, nervous system damage, and other life-threatening complications. But nutrition researcher and author Neal Barnard, M.D., says it doesn’t have to be that way.


In a free lecture in Toledo, Ohio, on April 20, 2007, Dr. Barnard will share findings from his latest research showing that a low-fat vegan diet can help many patients cut their blood sugars, improve their insulin sensitivity, and reduce, if not eliminate, their medications. The diet also lowers cholesterol and high blood pressure, helps with weight loss, and improves energy.


More than 20 million U.S. citizens have type 2 diabetes; about 200 million people worldwide suffer from the ever-growing epidemic.


Dr. Barnard’s unique nutritional approach to treating diabetes is outlined in his new book, “Dr. Neal Barnard ’s Program for Reversing Diabetes” (Rodale; January 2007; $25.95; hardcover; ISBN: 1-59486-528-0). The book is based on years of clinical research the author conducted with George Washington University and the University of Toronto .


Dr. Barnard’s latest study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, was recently published in “Diabetes Care” last August. The research shows that a low-fat vegan diet is actually more effective at treating diabetes than the standard American Diabetes Association diet or oral medications. “Although this may seem counterintuitive,” says Dr. Barnard, “our study participants found the vegan diet easier to stick with than the standard—or American Diabetes Association—diet. That’s because no one has to cut calories, watch portion sizes, or limit carbohydrates.”


Neal Barnard , M.D., is a nutrition researcher and adjunct associate professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington , D.C. He is also the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and the author of many previous books on diet and health, including “Foods that Fight Pain” and “Breaking the Food Seduction.”
