    GMO Insulin Causes Type 1 Diabetes in Type 2 Diabetics, Study Finds

    A groundbreaking new study finds synthetic (GMO) insulin is capable of rapidly producing type 1 diabetes in type 2 diabetics.

    Last year, we reported on the dangers of insulin therapy for type 2 diabetics, following the publication of a study comprised of almost 85,000 type 2 diabetic patients that found insulin monotherapy doubled their risk of all-cause mortality, in addition to significantly increasing their risk for diabetes-related complications and cancer. Insulin monotherapy resulted in:

    2.0 times more myocardial infarctions.
    1.7 time more major adverse cardiac events
    1.4 time more strokes
    3.5 times more renal complications
    2.1 time more neuropathy
    1.2 times more eye complications
    1.4 times more cancer
    2.2 times more deaths

    Now, a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism titled, "Insulin administration may trigger type 1 diabetes in Japanese type 2 diabetes patients with type 1 diabetes high-risk HLA class II and the insulin gene VNTR genotype," is shedding light on a possible explanation for why insulin treatment may accelerate morbidity and mortality in type 2 diabetics. The study revealed that giving genetically susceptible type 2 diabetes patients recombinant insulin can trigger their bodies to target their own insulin producing cells for autoimmune destruction, effectively producing 'double diabetes': type 1 and type 2, as a result.

    The Japanese study took 6 patients (4 men and 2 women) with type 2 diabetes, none of whom had previously received insulin therapy nor had markers for autoantibodies to their own insulin (e.g. GAD65). All patients were found to have the type 1 diabetes susceptibility gene known as type 1 diabetes high risk HLA class II (IDDM1), which is considered to play a role in up to 50% of type 1 diabetes cases, and the insulin gene VNTR genotype (IDDM2), believed to play a key role in susceptibility to type 2 diabetes.

    After recombinant insulin administration their blood glucose control deteriorated, and their own insulin producing beta cells – as measured by declining C-peptide levels (a marker for the production of natural insulin) – decreased insulin production to a deficiency levels commonly found in type 1 diabetes patients. The average time it took for the patients to develop full blown type 1 diabetes was 7.7 months, with one patient developing the condition within 1.1 months.

    Further tests revealed that the patients had antibodies against their own pancreatic islet cells (the cells responsible for producing insulin), insulin allergy or increased levels of insulin antibody. Additionally, 2 of 4 cases were found to have GAD-reactive and insulin peptide reactive Th1 cells, typical markers of autoimmunity induced type 1 diabetes.

    I love how the author arbitrarily slapped "GMO" onto this when the study makes zero differentiation and has nothing to do with GMO vs no GMO.

    If that's the biggest complaint you have after reading that article then you clearly have an agenda.

    What about, "Hey, wow, maybe those paleo/primal people are right about diabetes afterall and the establishment was wrong about their perception of diabetes all this time."

    Flashback:

    Do You Prefer Your Insulin Genetically Modified or Natural?

    Friday, December 07, 2007 by: Allie Beatty

    It's an interesting question and if you began insulin treatment in the last 20 years, it's likely that your doctor didn't ask, "do you prefer genetically modified insulin or natural insulin?". For Pete's sake, even restaurants ask if you want bottled or tap water. When you're stabbing the hormone into your body, without debate, there should be a choice!

    Animal insulins (insulin derived from animals) have suspiciously vanished from the shelves of pharmacies in the last few years. In 1997, an Eli Lilly media relations representative informed Scott King, of Diabetes Health Magazine, that only 300,000 insulin users were on animal insulins. By 2006, the last year of animal insulin production for Eli Lilly, supply side forced the demand to shrink to less than 1%. In less than 10 years, the insulin manufacturers were able to coerce doctors into forcing patients off of natural insulin and onto genetically modified insulins by the looming promise of animal insulin extinction.

    Since the introduction of insulin in 1923 until the debut of genetically modified human insulin in 1983, animal insulins were graduating to higher purity each year until the apex of nearly 100% purity in 1970 (Novo technology). Animal insulins were the closest thing to human insulin. This had a therapeutic advantage because the antibodies created to attack animal insulins did not attack insulin the human body could endogenously secrete.

    Many people with diabetes who were on animal insulins before transitioning to genetically modified insulin could actually obtain a C-peptide reading. Often doctors check C-peptide with a fasting blood sugar or hemoglobin A1c. This is the wrong way to check for beta cell efficiency. In order to accurately check your beta cell function, you must get your body to respond to a glucose load. This simple test, preformed properly, proves that the type of insulin used to treat diabetes can make the difference in helping beta cells regenerate or hindering them from recovery. Hint: The average honeymoon period has decreased since the introduction of genetically modified insulins!

    Eli Lilly warned doctors they would discontinue production of animal insulins after more than 80 years in the business. The Indianapolis drug maker said the decision was prompted by shrinking demand, rising costs and the fast-growing use of biosynthetic human insulin; which it calls medically superior and just as safe. The switchover to the production of this new insulin, according to them, was due to the shrinking of costs in the newly approved technology of recombinant DNA and because using E. coli to produce insulin that is cheaper to make and patent-profitable (without proof of supremacy in safety or efficacy) is the only way to go. This is simply a veneer of pharmaceutical marketing without peer-review.

    The declaration of medical superiority and safety was absolutely unproven in 1983 and continues to be unproven today. This alleged shrinking demand was due to the companies warning of their decisions to discontinue production of the natural insulins. How many pharmaceutical sales reps were peddling genetically modified human insulin over animal-insulins throughout the 80s? Tally the count. I can see it now, a million-man-army dispatched with medals gleaming asking me to try biosynthetic human insulin!

    Six patients is a pretty small study and difficult to draw any broad conclusions from. Also indicates they had a gene which makes them more susceptible to diabetes. Nor was there a control group.

    The Japanese study took 6 patients (4 men and 2 women) with type 2 diabetes, none of whom had previously received insulin therapy nor had markers for autoantibodies to their own insulin (e.g. GAD65). All patients were found to have the type 1 diabetes susceptibility gene known as type 1 diabetes high risk HLA class II (IDDM1), which is considered to play a role in up to 50% of type 1 diabetes cases, and the insulin gene VNTR genotype (IDDM2), believed to play a key role in susceptibility to type 2 diabetes.

    Relevant reading - Recombinant DNA

    Recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules are DNA molecules formed by laboratory methods of genetic recombination (such as molecular cloning) to bring together genetic material from multiple sources, creating sequences that would not otherwise be found in biological organisms.

    Genetically modified organisms

    The ability to obtain specific DNA clones using recombinant DNA technology has made it possible to add the DNA of one organism to the genome of another. The added gene is called a transgene. The transgene inserts itself into a chromosome and is passed to the progeny as a new component of the genome. The resulting organism carrying the transgene is called a transgenic organism or a genetically modified organism (GMO). In this way, a “designer organism” is made that contains some specific change required for an experiment in basic genetics or for improvement of some commercial strain. Several transgenic plants have been produced. Genes for toxins that kill insects have been introduced in several species, including corn and cotton. Bacterial genes that confer resistance to herbicides also have been introduced into crop plants. Other plant transgenes aim at improving the nutritional value of the plant.

    What if they're ful of total bull$#@!? The paper they're reporting on said absolutely nothing about GMO insulin. As usual, Donnay's favorite source just pulled the noise out of their ass.

    Why is it that you morons believe everything except clearly documented evidence? Is it because you NEED to believe you've discovered some secret(s) that nobody else know about just to feel good about yourself? Well, you shouldn't. If you had an ounce of intelligence you'd crawl back under your bridges, too embarrassed to ever post anything here ever again.

    And yet here you are, still believing with your empty little heads that you're somehow intelligent because you've managed to live past the page of 30.

    When Liars Cross the Line - GMO Insulin


    What did the paper really say?

    Well, that would require reading it, which I did. Here's the scoop. First, it does not mention "GMO Insulin" or even compare recombinant insulin to non-recombinant.


    Is that what GreenMedInfo and GMO Free USA say? Absolutely not! They should be admonished for their scare tactics. This crosses a line.

    The gist of the paper is simple. If you give insulin to someone that is not diabetic, the body reacts to the improper presence of insulin, which is a reactive hormone. After prolonged administration of insulin symptoms of Type 1 diabetes can be observed in some genetic backgrounds. The study by Nishida et al., 2014, in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism is a short report that expands previous observations to a set of six individuals that were being tested for this response. The interest was to determine if there was a genetic component that could be isolated in this short pilot study.


    And you thick-headed idiots bought it, sight unseen Didn't read it, didn't research it. Just thought "Woo Hoo! Now THIS I believe!"

    You can't really be any dumber. But the real problem is that you're too stupid to realize how $#@!ing dumb you really are.

    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Don't hold back, angel. No good keeping these things in. We as a society put too much emphasis on comity, civility and humanity. Just let it all hang out.

    GM medicine 'risks the lives of diabetics'


    Antony Barnett, Public Affairs Editor
    The Observer, Saturday 6 May 2000 19.26 EDT


    The lives of thousands of British diabetics were put at risk by multinational drug companies that 'intentionally and maliciously' suppressed information about the potentially lethal side-effects of a genetically engineered medicine, according to claims in US court documents.
    An American lawsuit launched in April against two drug corporations will embarrass Tony Blair, who this year cited synthetic insulin as an example of the benefits of genetically modified technology in producing 'life-saving medicines'.

    Yet lawyers representing a victim of the man-made insulin in a class action case in New Mexico claim the genetically engineered medicine leads to 'confusion, distress, coma and even death'. The diabetic bringing the case, Susan Kawulok, said the product caused 'unbearable pain and loss of most use of my arms'.

    Although no evidence has yet been put to substantiate claims that the firms acted improperly, the case could send shock waves through the pharmaceutical industry, which has invested millions in genetically engineered products.

    Diabetics do not naturally produce enough insulin - a vital hormone that controls the level of sugar in the blood. Hundreds of thousands of British diabetics have to inject insulin each day to survive. Until the Eighties, this insulin came from pigs or cattle, but US drugs giant Eli Lilly and a Danish company, Novo Nordisk, developed a synthetic insulin using genetic engineering. The new medicines were hailed as a scientific breakthrough and branded as 'human' insulin to distinguish them from the animal-derived product.

    Some 150,000 diabetics in Britain were switched to the new medicine and currently around 500,000 use these products. Although most diabetics have never had problems with the genetically engineered insulin, a significant minority have complained of serious side-effects.

    Unlike the case with natural insulin, some diabetics do not get any warning their blood sugar level has fallen and are more likely to go into comas, known as hypoglycaemic episodes or 'hypos'. Some become violent or pass out while driving.
