Again, more studies being done, which fly in the face of other studies leave many of us to believe or should I say not believe anything and everything in the medical and health profession. Currently a study done now states Antioxidents can increase your diabetes risk, yet previous studies showed a cure all from everything from Cancer, Diabetes to baldness. Come on, taxdollars paid for some of this research has many wonder "Are you Friggin Acedemic not on the same goddamn page?" Some studies said Eggs are Good, Some Say Eggs are Bad, Some say Wine is Good, some says it is Bad, the same goes for Probiotics in yogurt, some say this is bad as well. Jesus Christ People, either figure it out or get into another line of work! Is it any wonder they will never find a cure for Cancer and other serious Diseases when these Research Morons can't seem to get anything right, yet go straight to publication!
I think we should go back to the old Health Canada Food Guide from the 1960s and 1970s and follow that, cause it looks like this is where all this research is heading anyways!
CHICAGO - Instead of protecting against diabetes, antioxidants -- compounds in foods and supplements that prevent cell damage -- may actually increase the chances of getting diabetes, at least in the early stages, Australian researchers reported on Tuesday.
"In the case of early type 2 diabetes ... our studies suggest that antioxidants would be bad for you," Tony Tiganis of Monash University in Australia, whose study appears in the journal Cell Metabolism, said in a statement.
Antioxidants are protective proteins that can prevent cell damage caused by charged particles known as reactive oxygen species. This oxidative stress is thought to add to the progression of several diseases, including type 2 diabetes.
