              “In the early 20th century, many of the leading authorities on diabetes in North America and Europe (including Frederick Banting, who shared the 1923 Nobel Prize for the discovery of insulin) suspected that sugar causes diabetes based on the observation that the disease was rare in populations that didn’t consume refined sugar and widespread in those that did. In 1924, Haven Emerson, director of the institute of public health at Columbia University, reported that diabetes deaths in New York City had increased as much as 15-fold since the Civil War years, and that deaths increased as much as fourfold in some U.S. cities between 1900 and 1920 alone. This coincided, he noted, with an equally significant increase in sugar consumption — almost doubling from 1890 to the early 1920s — with the birth and subsequent growth of the candy and soft-drink industries.”

    Great article Mark!!! It’s amazing how quickly metabolic syndrome can be reversed once one stops the sugar/carb insanity. I literally was a 3x/day insulin dependent diabetic one week, and a diet and exercise controlled diabetic the next! That will be two years ago next month, haven’t looked back since! Glad to see this info is starting to find it’s way into mainstream society.

    Great article Mark, thanks for posting it.

    So more proof that C3 works. Had a structure fire only a few hours after I had completed the WOD today…figuring I would feel the burn…but to my surprise compared to 100 lb cleans, wearing 75 lb of gear dragging the 2″ line up a hill into the house was a piece of cake. Thanks CrossFit!!!
