    This is his response to a South African vegan activists assertion that only a plant based diet cures diabetes.

    Such a cool, considered response to what is basically a hateful rant. How someone can get away with writing such stuff just beats me.

    Noakes responds to Leaf assessment of dietary study

    It's so sad that so much valuable time has to be wasted responding to unnecessary criticism.

    It's the same with the Cummins/Kendrick debate. It really is exasperating. We should know by now these are complex issues and looking for absolute clarity will only be achieved with hindsight.
    I'm with Kendrick on the CAC testing issue.
    If you think you know what MAY be necessary changes to diet/lifestyle to reduce a high CAC score, then you may as well apply those changes now, as soon as possible, and not bother with the CAC test, unless you have money to spare and would be encouraged by repeat testing and seeing a pattern of lower CAC numbers. I'm concerned people will get a CAC test with a lowish result, and then assume they are fine to continue eating fast foods and not apply the sensible diet/lifestyle measures that will not only reduce the risk of heart disease but also reduce the chance of diabetes and dementia.
    Subclinical magnesium deficiency: a principal driver of cardiovascular disease and a public health crisis
    As soon a blood glucose levels start rising we begin to waste magnesium Magnesium and type 2 diabetes this happens years before any doctor suspects pre-diabetes or T2 diabetes. Magnesium deficiency adversely affects our ability to absorb/use vitamin D3 so before long people are both magnesium and vitamin d deficient which makes matters even worse.
    We don't have to wait for any testing to correct the potential for both magnesium/vitamin d insufficiency.
