Link between food packaging and insulin resistance

Tamara Galloway, professor of eco-toxicology at the University, said: "They have suggested that Bisphenol A acts like a hormone where it disrupts the actions of hormones particularly oestrogen and that might be having some effect on insulin resistance and on the way that fat is distributed in the body."

Thanks for that :)

There is something similar in New Scientist (yup, I'm a nerd lol) http://www.newscientist.com/channel/health/mg19926731.900-could-the-diabetes-epidemic-be-down-to-pollution.html

I know it says diabetes, but insulin resistance / metabolic syndrome is halfway there...

Ah sorry, only has beginning of article, maybe the full one will be online in a while (it's in the mag this week).

Basically it says that a certain group of chemicals ("POPs") are linked to diabetes, and they are unavoidable in the food chain and then collect in a person's fat tissue. There is no proven cause-and-effect though. Also, the more fat you carry the greater the problems.

Think that's about the gist of it!
Medication experiment(s) - 25/7/08- stopping Dianette, Met. 1500mg/day,+ Wellwoman vits.
AF 14/9/08!
21/2/09 - stopped metformin. 24/2/09 - started reductil.
Summer 09 - scrap the drugs, go for vit D 5000IU + Omega 3 1000mg + "primal" diet... 3 x AF and counting :)
