Government. And quasi-governmental, fraudulent corporatocracy whores like the ADA. See my blog on this from yesterday. Now see this ad from the Nutrition and Metabolism Society.

    This one really hit home with me. When my father was in the hospital a few years ago I remember dressing down the Jackson Mi hospital “Nutrionist” for allowing him to be served sugar laden breakfast foods when he had diabetes. Then the idiots would come by a half hour later, test his blood sugar and, suprise, suprise! It would be way too high, then the insulin needles come out.
    Before my dad arrived at the hospital ( he was there for an ulcer) he never needed insulin shots and was able to control blood sugar levels with oral medication.
    Anyways, back to the moronic “Nutritionist” She was about 22 years old, and gave me the old ADA line about the food being recommended. I explained to her the mechanisim behind blood sugar levels and what kind of foods diabetics should be eating, in exasperation she asked me, I am not kidding here, “What do you want me to do?” !!! I said something to the effect that I wanted him served a high protein diet with no refined carbs and that she should learn biochemistry. I didn’t make any new friends that day.
    They also administered beta-blockers after I and my other family members specifically instructed them not to. My dad had severe negative reactions to beta-blockers. I grabbed the chart off the wall to see what tomfoolery they were up to and a nurse almost shit a brick, they don’t want anyone finding out their incompetence! I could go on and on about the hospitals malpractice but it just won’t do me any good. If you want to live a long healthy life, stay out of the hospital! Mike

    Mike: my friend is a paramedic and paleo. She has the same horror stories to share about hospitals mainlining diabetics with sugar. My Dad – long, slow death – was eventually killed by the medical system. My Mom *almost* was – twice. A healthy friend was killed when he went in for a hip replacement. After years of hospital experiences with my parents (like you), I have the view that hospitals and the medical establishment kill people.
