Diabetes and cinnamon
SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2012 v6n1 p0519
I watched a video that made the claim that something that you have in your spice cabinet can get rid of your diabetes. That sounded wonderful, is it true? Will cinnamon make your diabetes go away?
Yes, and no.
Several studies have shown that cinnamon has lipid-lowering capability in rats. Rats are used as a model for humans, because they are mammals, and because they are small. Rats are so small that you can keep them in cages and know every molecule of solids and liquids they consume, and you can find out exactly what the effects of these molecules are.
You cannot do that with humans unless they are so ill they cannot feed themselves, or unless you lock them up in solitary confinement without a flush toilet.
Humans lie. Rats in cages do not.

The human studies also strongly suggest that taking a teaspoon of cinnamon every day is a good idea, click here and click here.
The reporters of the human and rat research suggested that cinnamon is preventive, and can reverse early diabetes.
The results in obese women over 60 showed that cinnamon was not effective in this group. These women had on average been diagnosed with diabetes 7 years, and would be expected to have some of the complications of diabetes. The complications of diabetes lead to cardiovascular disease, blindness, ulcers, nerve pain, click here.
I conclude that taking a teaspoon of cinnamon every day is a good idea. Along with eating a whole orange, a handful of peanuts, a banana, oats, leafy green vegetables and soy beans. And sprinkle some nutmeg on your oatmeal.

Why I suck cinnamon bark. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2012 v5n1 p0618
I have called into question some who are sworn to take care of our
security. Now I am taking aim at some sworn to take care of our health.
This article is irresponsible and wrong, click here. I expect better of a government agency, making sweeping statements without any evidence.
read reports of clinical studies showing that cinnamon is a good thing
to take if you have diabetes, and published an article summarizing the
reports, with links to each article, click here.
was convinced that cinnamon lowers blood glucose, so I take a teaspoon a
day. Occasionally I suck on cinnamon bark to sweeten my breath.
that works to lower blood glucose and blood sugar should and must be
used. I read today that 1 in 10 in China have diabetes. Chinese eat
white rice, read about the effects of white rice and white bread on
diabetes, click here.
cinnamon interfere with other drugs? I do not know, but I could find no
evidence in the US National Library of Medicine database.
teetering on the brink of being diagnosed with clinical diabetes, I do
everything I can to keep me from falling. I ate red rice a month ago, an
hour later my blood sugar was way up in the nearly-diabetes range. So
now I do not eat white rice, ever. I eat lentils instead, and move
around at every opportunity. Dance diabetes into hell.

am wondering what other nonsense the National Center for Complementary
and Alternative Medicine will come up with.
I will let you know.
