I suspect many people have total lack physical activity in their lives, hardest fat deposits to get rid of is also the most damaging. Internal organ fat that builds up around the bodies organs.
Yup.
Lot of people don't know what hard work is. Not to mention healthy exercise schedules.


I'm part of a blue zone demographic that lives longer. It's been real rich, the last couple years, having obviously subpar-health people preaching vax mandates as some sort of answer. Talking about burdens on the health care system...

This was excellent and informative... this post definately belongs here , but could be helpful for those that were interested in the 'Number One cause of obesity is genetics", "Aspartame", & health in general.

I'd like to try something new and ask that replies be positive & constructive... those that don't agree with this vid will voice their restraint. Thanks if allowed & accepted. This is serious stuff and I wish more healthcare providers would discuss this with more patients rather than provide meds for maintenance... acute help fine, but discussions should be the first line of defense. I would also urge to always talk to your doctor regarding this info before acting on this.

With diabetes cases projected to soar to 1.3 billion by 2050, primarily due to obesity, one Canadian entrepreneur thinks knowing how to read food labels could be key to stalling the surge.

Brad Woodgate, author of "No Sugar In Me," said the way food companies market their products is misleading to consumers and can lead to unhealthy eating.

“Food companies are starting to get smarter by saying ‘no added sugar’ or ‘reduced sugar’ and all these marketing terminologies,” he told CTVNews.ca on Friday.


But that doesn't account for natural sugars that occur in some of the ingredients being used.
....
There are at least 61 different names for sugar listed on food labels, according to a team of health scientists from the University of California, San Francisco. While most product labels show the sugar levels, it makes it hard to truly know how much is from added sugar and how much is naturally occurring from ingredients such as fruits or milk.

“I’m an expert in the field and I can’t even remember all the names right now. How is the average consumer going to know?” said Woodgate, who is also the CEO of a health food company.

When looking at a label, ingredients are listed in a descending order from largest to smallest quantity.

So, the first three ingredients are the most important and if sugar – or any of its divergent names – is listed there “you should be very careful with the consumption of that product,” said Woodgate. Consumers should also look at the fiber percentage, as this one tends to be very low on processed foods.
Pays to read the labels and watch out for all the different sugars.

Here's an interesting Canadian connection to the diabetic drug (Ozempic).
In 1984, Dr. Daniel Drucker, an endocrinologist from the University of Toronto, discovered a hormone in the human gut that helped pave the way for popular diabetes drugs such as Novo Nordisk’s Ozempic and Wegovy.


It’s called glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) and its function is to regulate blood sugar levels and suppresses appetite.

“The first discoveries we made for what GLP-1 did naturally supported the development of treatments for diabetes,” Drucker told Global News. “I did basic science. I really had no idea where this would lead. And now it’s having a huge clinical impact globally, which is just great to see as a physician.”

Drucker, along with others in the scientific community, wanted to turn GLP-1 into a drug to help people manage Type 2 diabetes. However, there was a problem: GLP-1 quickly disappears from the human body, positing difficulties in drug development.

...

This venomous reptile, native to the southern U.S., possesses the remarkable ability to endure extended periods without food. It can effectively slow down its metabolism and sustain stable blood sugar levels without compromising its health. Hormones in this reptile’s venom had also previously been shown to regulate blood sugar.

Drucker wanted to know why and honed his research using venom from the Gila Monster.

As in the origin/discovery of other medications, a natural hormone was repurposed to produce a new drug.

For those interested... this link is about Type 1.
(I'm not dismissing it... most of the posts are referring to type 2, just an fyi before clicking)
