What can gorillas teach us?

All the gorillas were dying… Over 50 years of trying to breed gorillas in zoos and nothing was working. It didn’t matter where they tried — San Diego, Cincinnati, St. Louis — not even the best zoos in the country could get these gorillas to reproduce. They were facing extinction. And everyone simply accepted that it was impossible to breed gorillas in zoos. That was until one caretaker took a closer look at what the gorillas were eating. For decades, zoos fed the gorillas what they called gorilla biscuits. But, on top of being unable to reproduce, the gorillas were developing diseases like heart disease,1 diabetes,2 obesity3 and high blood pressure.4 In short, gorillas were not made to eat “biscuits.” It’s a bit scary to think how you and I find ourselves in a similar situation. I see it more and more in my clinic patients every year. People are getting sick. They’re struggling with weight, diabetes, heart disease… the list goes on and on. And the only answer they can get from mainstream doctors is that it’s genetic. Well I’m here to tell you, just like the gorillas, there is nothing wrong with you. You were made perfect. But the world you live in was not. And you are suffering from today’s abnormal environment. Mainstream medicine has failed you. They can’t see that every chronic disease is connected by this one common thread that I call Syndrome Zero. And the biggest culprit is the massive overl...

Authors: Pintaudi B, Di Vieste G, Corrado F, Lucisano G, Giunta L, D'Anna R, Di Benedetto A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Myo-inositol supplementation prevents gestational diabetes (GDM) in women at risk and reduces insulin resistance in women with GDM. No data are available about its effect on glucose variability. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a supplementation of myo-inositol on glucose variability in women with GDM. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Myo-inositol effect on glucose variability was studied in a pilot case-control study involving 12 consecutive pregnant women (median age 34 years, 25.0% insulin...

Investigation for TGF-β1 expression in type 2 diabetes and protective effects of TGF-β1 on osteoblasts under high glucose environment. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2018 Jan;22(19):6500-6506 Authors: Wang WD, Cheng BZ, Kang WB, Zheng RW, Cai YL, Wang XJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: The occurrence rate of delayed fracture healing in diabetes mellitus patients is high. Transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) is an important regulatory factor in bone tissue repair and regeneration. However, TGF-β1 expression and its function in diabetic patient fracture have not been fully elucidated. PATI...

CONCLUSIONS: Compelling experimental and human work has highlighted the close association connection between endoneurial microangiopathy and diabetic polyneuropathy. Future investigations will need to investigate the role of microvascular factors both in the periphery and the central nervous system in the pathogenesis of painful DPN.

CONCLUSIONS: The identification of inflammatory biomarkers released by adipose tissue, in the pathogenesis of EC, could be useful in improving diagnostic accuracy, identifying targets of therapy, suggesting useful lifestyle behaviors. A deeper knowledge of the genetic background of alterations in inflammatory pathway genes could better define the population exposed to a higher susceptibility to EC due to genetic polymorphisms. Future studies are needed to better understand this field. PMID: 30338797 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help.

If the successes in technological development achieved over the past few hundred years is teaching us anything, perhaps it should be that individual members of a species that evolved in an environment of pervasive scarcity and intermittent famine are not well equipped for an environment of consistent plenty. Our biochemistry and our instincts lead us astray: eat too many calories and life expectancy and long-term health will suffer for it. This is not new. We are no different from our ancestors in this aspect of the human condition. The change lies in the fact that we now live in an age so wealthy and capable that consiste...
