We had the good fortune to hear a lecture by Dr. Mercola (of Mercola.com fame) at a recent International Chiropractic Pediatric Association seminar. A little fact from Dr. Mercola to keep in mind regarding health is that in about a gallon of blood in the average-sized healthy person there is only 1 teaspoon of glucose (sugar). That’s not much! It is not hard to understand why insulin resistance and diabetes continue to be on the rise–sugar continues to provide about 25 % of calories for many Americans. Add refined starches that readily convert to sugar in the gut to the average person’s diet and the picture of the blood being deluged with sugar comes to mind.
