Some people just have good genes i guess...
I'd like to have a guess if I may. Genetic predisposition is really overestimated if you ask me. It's just an excuse for people to be lazy and not
take responsibility for their own health by saying, "Diabetes is in my genes so, I guess, there's nothing I can do about it. Could you pass the
chocolate cake please?
When scientists, and people in general really, were curious as to what these centenarians had in common. What made them live so long? Maybe it was
low cholesterol? Do they exercise a lot? The longest recorded known person to live died at the age of 122. She smoked and drank her whole
life.?.?.? So it's not a clean lifestyle either. Could it be that they are just nice, easy going, happy people?
Well that's not it either. What researchers are finding is that this group of special people have pretty much one common denominator. They all have
relatively low insulin and blood sugar levels.
I know, who'da thunk? So, to learn from these people, we must eat low carbohydrate diets in order to keep insulin sensitivity high. It's really
not much of a secret.
