Richard Moore, MD, PhD; Diabetes problems are NOT caused by high blood sugar
Tuesday, September 22, 2009 2:09 pm Email this article
"[H]igh blood glucose in diabetes is NOT the cause of the pathology," wrote Richard Moore, MD, PhD, professor and research scientist, and author of the book "The High Blood Pressure Solution".
In other words, health problems associated with diabetes are NOT caused by high blood sugar.
This is an excerpt from a letter by Richard Moore, MD, PhD dated August 31, 2009.
“Dr. Zierler, the scientist at the University of Illinois, and myself made repeated attempts to inform the American Diabetes Association about this, but in every case, they refused to listen.”
“But the glucose dogma was (and is) so strong that almost everyone just ‘knew’ that tighter control of blood glucose levels would solve the remaining problems to which diabetics are prone.”
“So the NIH conducted the ACCORD study in which the blood glucose in each of 10,000 diabetics was lowered to normal levels – [in other words] ‘tight control’ was achieved.”
“To the surprise of the medical community, the ACCORD study was discontinued early because as I had predicted in 1983, ‘tight control’ would not help, and, as I had not predicted, they found that ‘tight control’ of blood sugar levels actually resulted in a 25% increase in mortality!
Julian Whitaker, MD, author of “Reversing Diabetes” does NOT use oral diabetes drugs because a study in 1973 found that, even though they lower blood sugar, they INCREASED health problems in diabetics.
“[T]he idea that insulin’s main action is to lower blood glucose turns out to be a historical accident [in other words, a mistake].
“Basic research done between 1958 and 1963 clearly demonstrated that the main action of insulin is to stimulate the sodium-potassium pump and to reduce the acid inside the body’s cells.
“A study by Dr. Ken Zierler at Johns Hopkins and others [including] my group clearly demonstrated this.
Here are some other quotes from Dr. Moore’s letter.
“[In our book, The K Factor (1986), we] showed that 95% of the cases of hypertension [in the U.S.] are due to [too little potassium
and too much sodium].
“[S]ince you can’t repair a dietary deficiency with a synthetic chemical [a drug] this clearly indicated that drugs are not the answer for hypertension.
“[A] study [of blood pressure drugs] did show a 30% reduction in strokes, but Finland found that simply
replacing table salt (sodium chloride) with a salt mixture containing some potassium and magnesium in addition to sodium reduced strokes by 60%
in the whole country!
“A study of 17,000 people over a 5 year period demonstrated that lowering blood pressure with drugs had zero effect on over-all mortality!”About Dr. Moore
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
