Slide update: This food, served by and to health professionals, is supported by current dietary guidelines & Insulin is now the 7th most expensive liquid on 🌎 behind Chanel No. 5. This is how we make sure more people need it.

I call this an example of a “Meat: No, Diabetes: Yes” policy. It’s colorful, refined, plant-based, insulinogenic, and supported by current dietary guidelines.

Insulin is now the 7th most expensive liquid on earth ($13,100/gallon), behind Chanel No. 5 ($23,300/gallon).

Unfortunately, this scene is still very common in meetings catered for and by health professionals. It’s professional to give feedback with ❤️, which I did. It was a high quality dialogue, we’re all here to spread health.

My suggestion for improvement is not to cater any food to

  1. Eliminate waste (30% of 🌎 food is wasted, number is higher for fruits, vegetables and cereals, lower for meat and dairy)
  2. Keep meetings affordable
  3. Mitigate #ClimateChange caused by increased pharmaceutical and health care use from feeding humans this food ✌️.

As I’ve posted before, I am not the only doctor with concerns:

Understanding Food Waste

Food Waste

For example, Webber (2012) estimates that food waste represents 2.5 percent of U.S. energy consumption per year, and Hall et al. (2009) estimate that the production of this wasted food required the expenditure of around 300 million barrels of oil and over 25 percent of the total freshwater consumed by agriculture in the United States. A more detailed understanding of the resource implications of food loss in the United States, including estimates of the land used to produce wasted food, is not available.Source: USDA ERS – The Estimated Amount, Value, and Calories of Postharvest Food Losses at the Retail and Consumer Levels in the United States

We’re in the era of diabetes reversal, why don’t more doctors know?
