Diabetes Danger: What 200 Million Americans At Risk Need to Know
A new book by Dr. Walter M. Bortz II, a leading authority in the fields of aging and diabetes – Diabetes Danger: What 200 Million Americans At Risk Need to Know – compares the present diabetes surge to a raging fire inferno engulfing 200 million Americans.
“We are eating too much, moving too little, and living too fast,” Dr. Bortz’s says in the book to explain how obesity and inactivity are the leading cause of the diabetes epidemic threatening Americans today. No other disease poses a greater risk than diabetes, and no other terrible disease – from AIDS, to leprosy to cancer – or whatever dreaded illness you care to name – has more dreadful complications than diabetes.
The list of complications is long and scary: heart failure, strokes, amputations, kidney disease, nerve pain, impotency, intestinal disturbance, depression, blindness, and skin problems. No human organ or cell is immunized from the cruelty of diabetes. And the misery doesn’t stop with the ravages to our human bodies. On the average, a diabetic spends $11,000 a year in medical costs and dies 15 years prematurely – an expensive, painful and slow death.
“You are in control,” is the message that comes across the pages of this book. Dr. Bortz teaches the reader the necessary steps to take charge of the treatment for prevention and control of diabetes, using simple methods for nutrition, exercise and stress management. A lack of lay and medical literature about preventing diabetes prompted Dr. Bortz to write this book.
Living a healthy lifestyle combining diet, exercise and stress control information can prevent diabetes. And lifestyle changes can reverse the disease in the very early stages. Dr. Bortz research shows how the supersizing of Americans plays crucial role as the leading cause of diabetes. In the book, he uses the example of a car pulling a huge sled filled with cinder blocks. The weight of the sled is causing the engine, the tires and everything else in the car to wear out. If you remove the sled, then the car runs more efficiently and reversing the condition.
Diabetes Danger gives the reader the tools to prevent or control this catastrophe in their life by educating them with the latest scientific research and common sense advice.
