Diabetes is the number 1 cause of nontraumatic amputations in the United States. What’s truly outrageous is that most of these amputations are happening to people with the form of diabetes that can easily be cured, sometimes within as little as a week, by a simple change in diet. Just eat unrefined plant foods instead of animal-based foods and processed foods and cut your fat intake to 10% or less of calories.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus is cured by removing the cause, which is the fatty, low-fiber, standard American diet. People who switch to a high-fiber, low-fat (~10% of calories), high-carbohydrate (75% of calories), purely plant-based (vegan) diet become undiabetic within a surprisingly short time. (They can get even quicker results if they also start exercising.) A proper diet can even relieve the agonizing pain and dangerous numbness from diabetic neuropathy in the feet within a matter of days to weeks.
