SHOCKING Secret Diabetes Trigger
Type 2 diabetes has increased dramatically in recent years—and it’s going to get a LOT worse before it gets better.
It’s easy to blame our Western diet of processed junk food, too much sugar, and obesity for this epidemic.
But there’s more to it than that. There’s another BIG reason diabetes is on the rise…
And an even BIGGER problem is that mainstream medicine denies this problem EVEN exists.
Our circadian rhythm is the 24-hour internal body clock that regulates our sleep and wake cycles. It influences everything from digestion to the release of hormones.
But when our circadian rhythm is disrupted—by too much artificial indoor light and insufficient direct sunlight—it wreaks havoc on our metabolic system.
This puts ALL of us at risk for blood sugar control problems, whether we’re overweight or not.
That’s because natural light is the strongest environmental cue for your circadian clock.
Scientists KNOW this.
But they didn’t know whether spending more time in the sun could improve blood sugar control in folks with type 2 diabetes.
To find out, researchers conducted metabolic tests on people with type 2 diabetes after exposure to natural light and artificial light,
The results are enlightening, to say the least.
The group exposed to the natural light had…
- blood glucose levels that were in the normal range for longer
- a lower respiratory exchange ratio, which means it was easier for their bodies to switch from using carbohydrates to fat as an energy source
- more active genes that help control the circadian rhythm
In other words, too little natural light during the day could dramatically increase your risk of developing blood sugar problems.
In fact, natural light may be so beneficial to your metabolism that it could treat or prevent type 2 diabetes.
And that should be a wake-up call for ALL of us. We need to take steps to REDUCE our nighttime exposure to artificial lights and INCREASE our time spent in the sun.
P.S. Are you getting ENOUGH sunlight?

Scientists have been searching in vain for a CURE for Alzheimer’s disease. While some drugs may help lessen symptoms in the short term, scientists aren’t even close to a cure. But maybe that’s because they’ve been looking in the wrong place. Instead of focusing on what’s going on in the brains of dementia patients, maybe...
Just because something is common, it DOESN’T make it safe. And neither does “being natural” mean it’s okay for everyone. This is true of anything—including supplements.

If you want to live SIGNIFICANTLY longer, don’t get type 2 diabetes. After all, this diagnosis sends your risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney problems, and even cancer soaring.

You’ve likely given some thought to the size of your muscles over the years or your (growing) waistline. But have you ever considered the size of your brain? You SHOULD.

Like the lung cancer I wrote just a few days ago, breast cancer’s survival rate is highest when it’s caught EARLY. But this doesn’t just mean getting cancer screenings. It also means regularly looking for WARNING SIGNS at home. Most women know that discovering a lump in their breast warrants a trip to their doctor....
