"[A blood pressure study called the ALLHAT study found that three newer blood pressure drugs] had far worse health outcomes than the original, cheap thiazide diuretics," wrote Richard Moore, MD, PhD, professor and research scientist, and author of the book "The High Blood Pressure Solution".
"As one author of the paper wrote, 'We cant say whether the diuretics were better than -- or not as bad as -- the other groups of drugs."
"Since it is well established that thiazide diuretics often cause diabetes, it well may be the later."

About Dr. Moore
Dr. Moore’s received his M.D. from Indiana University, and his Ph.D. in biophysics from Purdue University.
Starting in 1963, Dr. Moore spent 40 years as a college professor and research scientist teaching and researching cellular biophysics.
Dr. Moore’s research group research group discovered that insulin regulates the activity of the mechanism that exchanges potassium for sodium in live cells.
Dr. Moore’s group also discovered that, connected with this, insulin elevates the pH inside cells.
This research and that of others then led to insights in how our dietary imbalance between potassium and sodium cause hypertension and other diseases.
“Since recognizing the critical importance of the dietary ratio of potassium-to-sodium (in 1983), I have been trying to educate the public about this issue primarily by writing books.”
Dr. Moore is the author of several books including “The High Blood Pressure Solution”.
Dr. Moore is the also co-author of “The Salt Solution”.
This book discusses how an imbalance of potassium and sodium not only affects:
... but also
how it affects:
• stomach cancer
• kidney disease
