Scientists at Harvard university recently discovered how to make large quantities of insulin producing cells. They are claiming that this breakthrough is just as big as the development of antibiotics, which (although successful) have not come without severe and damaging health consequences. You can read more about that and see specific examples here.
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease which prevents a person’s pancreas from producing insulin, which is a hormone that enables people to receive energy from their food. This occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin producing cells in the pancreas, which are called beta cells. Apparently, the cause is not well understood, but scientists believe that genetic and environmental factors play a role. Modern day mainstream science tells us that there are no preventative measures, and no cure.
Harvard researchers managed to develop billions of beta cells that (insulin producing cells) would be required for transplantation, which would put an end to the daily injections that millions of people (living with diabetes) all over the world have to take everyday.
“We are now just one pre-clinical step away from the finish line. It was gratifying to know that we can do something that we always thought was possible” – Doug Melton, Leading Researcher (1)
It’s not 100 percent confirmed yet, the stem cell-derived beta cells are currently undergoing clinical trials in animal models, which include non-human primates. These results have been successful so far, as the beta cells are still producing insulin after several months.
This new discovery comes approximately one year after researchers at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) discovered the hormone and thought (then) it could be used to treat type two diabetes (see video below). It appears they’ve come a long way since then.
Melon is hoping to have human clinical trials underway within the next couple of years. Over 20 years ago his son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, since then he has dedicated his life to find a cure, he’s now extremely close. His daughter also suffers from type 1 diabetes.
“You never know for sure that something like this is going to work until you’ve tested it numerous ways. For decades, researchers have tried to generate human pancreatic beta cells that could be cultured and passaged long-term under conditions where they produce insulin. Melton and his colleagues have now overcome this hurdle and opened the door for drug discovery and transplantation therapy in diabetes” – Doug Melton (1)
“This work will leave a dent in the history of diabetes. Doug Melton has put in a lifetime of hard work in finding a way of generating human islet cells in vitro. He made it. This is a phenomenal accomplishment.” (1)
Despite cell transplantation for people with type 1 diabetes being strictly experimental, this new research is clearly providing promising results and inches us closer to a real cure. Even though diabetics can can keep their glucose metabolism largely under control by injecting insulin multiple times a day, it still doesn’t do the trick entirely when it comes to controlling metabolism. As a result, severe health risks are still present.
There are over 25 million Americans alone that require insulin injections everyday. This could change everything.
Is There Something We’re Missing?
Numerous studies and human case examples clearly indicate the extreme health benefits of a completely raw diet. In the film Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, six test subjects were used, all of whom had varying lifestyles and conditions but were all diabetic- five type 2, and one type 1. Each subject was taking insulin.
Research shows that in terms of health, meat eaters have 4 times more breast cancer, 3.6 times more prostate cancer, 4 times more diabetes, and much more in general chronic disease. If you’re just having milk, that’s 3 times more leukemia.
The participants of the program were as follows:
- Austin (age 25) was not only a type 1 diabetic, but he also had a drinking problem.
- Kirt (age 25) had a blood sugar reading of 1200. Normal is below 100. His doctor told him, “You should be dead.”
- Bill (age 58) was seeing a cardiologist and had neuropathy. He could not feel his feet.
- Michelle (age 36) was quite obese.
- Henry (age 58) took insulin plus 9 pills daily. Blood sugar was at 464.
- Pam (62) was quite obese. Her father, brother and sister are also diabetic.
This is a remarkable story that’s important (I feel) to share within this article. You can learn and read more about it HERE.
