Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. The American Diabetic Association says that the causes of Type 1 diabetes are not known.
There may be different causes but one cause has been identified: exposure to cow's milk. Watch the video to understand the mechanism.
Type 1 diabetes strikes people at any age. It comes on suddenly, causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications.
To stay alive, people with type 1 diabetes must take multiple insulin injections daily or continually infuse insulin through a pump. They must also test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood six or more times a day. While trying to balance insulin doses with their food intake and daily activities, people with this form of diabetes still must always be prepared for serious hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemic (high blood sugar) reactions, both of which can be life-limiting and life threatening.
As many as three million Americans may have type 1 diabetes, and each year more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
But there's a pretty straightforward way to avoid it altogether: don't consume dairy products or consume animal proteins -- but especially milk, cheese and other milk products.
The same is true for myriad other autoimmune diseases, such as arthritis, colitis, lupus and many more.
Here at VegSource, before there was a VegSource, we discovered this when co-founder Sabrina was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called "relapsing polychondritis." For a year she suffered with it, taking powerful steroids and other drugs, all the while getting worse -- until she learned the information that Dr. McDougall teaches, such as the info in this video.
When Sabrina removed milk, after already being vegetarian, her autoimmune disease quickly went into remission, where it has stayed for over 15 years.
