Dear Readers,


If you tried to reach us at the office this week, you may have experienced a slower-than-normal response time as Courtney was out of the office with tonsillitis. Today we should get completely caught up on all orders and returning all phone calls. We appreciate your patience in this process.


Today's newsletter is short and sweet, and next week we'll return with a full newsletter, which will highlight feedback we received from last week's newsletter on breast health and cancer screening.


Wishing you great health,


Timothy Long



The White Rice and Diabetes Connection


An excerpt from Dr. Mark Allan Sircus' article "White Rice and Diabetes":


White rice is the dominant form of rice eaten in the world. Machines produce its polished look by hulling and milling, leaving a grain that is predominantly starch with very little nutrition at its best.


White rice, white sugar, white bread and white pasta are white because they are stripped of their mineral, vitamin and fiber content. These are actually poisonous foods for us because they cause magnesium deficiency.


Dr. Carolyn Dean indicates that magnesium deficiency is an independent predictor of diabetes and that diabetics need more as well as lose more magnesium than most people. Magnesium is necessary for the production, function and transport of insulin.
