Now, anyone familiar with my posts will be aware of my scepticism over the miracle properties of long wheat as a cure for type 2 diabetes. For those not aware; I think it utter nonsense with no scientific basis whatsoever.
However, I could be wrong, so we need to do a little research.
So, for the sake of argument let’s assume you’re attracted to the notion, but want to make sure you’re not going to embark on an expensive journey that will have no end.
So how do you go about it? How do you convince yourself that by eating long wheat you will have CURED your diabetes? (Note - the operative word here is CURED, for if your blood sugar is does not fall within normal parameters after introducing long wheat to your diet, then you are NOT cured).
Well, firstly you have to find a source of long wheat that you are absolutely CERTAIN is long wheat. Next you purchase, say, a week's worth. You then decide on a day that you will start the regime. Then for the next three days (seven would be more realistic if you can stick it) you will eat NOTHING else but prepared long wheat and water whilst constantly monitoring your blood glucose. It will be boring, but hey, we're talking about a CURE here for a disease that is truly horrible, and it won’t kill you. This is to eliminate any bias and confounding variables that mean you can’t tease out the data.
After the three days if long wheat is a CURE, then your blood sugar will be entirely normal and you will have possibly achieved a CURE and you will be able to reintroduce the rice, potatoes, chapatis and candies etc that made you T2 in the first place. Your blood sugar will STILL be normal, for you are CURED, right? You publish your results here along with your peers’ who have decided to join you.
You will be cured or not.
If you are cured then I will have to re-evaluate my position, which I will cheerfully do, then invite you to share your results within the scientific community and various worldwide diabetes associations who, likewise will be astonished, and there will then be a series of gold standard double blind tests to eliminate the anecdotal evidence. The world of T2 diabetics will fall at your feet and Monsanto shares will plummet!
Bear in mind that offering long wheat as a cure for T2 is an extraordinary claim; and extraordinary claims require extraordinary proofs!
So there it is guys, this is your challenge which I invite you to participate in. There are enough believers here to step up to the plate, but if you don’t then you and they are living in a fool's paradise being led by fools or people with an agenda other than saving the world that involves a certain self aggrandisement.
How many will participate? I will ask that question at a later date.
