The index case for insulin was a master Leonard Thompson and if you look back on my blogs you will see a photo of him and his mom when he was really ill and dying. Dying in a sea of plenty. Plenty sugar but no key = insulin to get the sugar into the cells, all the cells including brain cells in order for metabolism (normal workings of a cell) to take place. Instead the body uses other “sources” of nourishment with an end product of ketones that then knocks on and causes a very acidic environment that is not compatible with life.
