Steven Cooksey has been diagnosed with Diabetes. I’m always looking for examples of people who are living as individuals. In other words making up their own minds, doing their own research and taking control of their lives and health.
I got this message via email from a webmaster forum I frequent. Here’s the excerpt and a link to Steven Cooksey’s blog and more on his tussle with for profit medicine.
excerpt: “Steven’s life choices fly directly in the face of the American Diabetes Association’s recommendations for people living with the disease. As a result is in fantastic health. Incredibly, because of his dietary decisions, Cooksey no longer requires insulin injections (on his website, he states that before adopting the Paleo diet he was taking four insulin shots a day). With those kind of seemingly miraculous results, it’s no surprise that Cooksey wanted to share his story and hopefully help others with what he’s learned through his own research and experience.
While trying to help others, Cooksey also has no problem making his disagreements with the ADA known. However, little did he know that by blogging about his success in maintaining his diabetes with the Paleo diet while also lambasting the ADA for its dietary policies would lead to him become a target for government censorship.”
