Giant leap against diabetes

Ability to produce embryonic stem cells will allow researchers to push faster toward cure

Harvard stem cell researchers announced today that they have made a giant leap forward in the quest to find a truly effective treatment for type 1 diabetes, a disease that affects an estimated 3 million Americans at a cost of about $15 billion annually.

With human embryonic stem cells as a starting point, the scientists were for the first time able to produce, in the kind of massive quantities needed for cell transplantation and pharmaceutical purposes, human insulin-producing beta cells equivalent in most every way to normally functioning beta cells.

Doug Melton, who led the work, said he hopes to have human transplantation trials using the cells under way within a few years. Twenty-three years ago, when his infant son Sam was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Melton dedicated his career to finding a cure for the disease.

“We are now just one preclinical step away from the finish line,” said Melton, whose daughter Emma also has type 1 diabetes.

A report on the new work is being published today by the journal Cell.

Hasn't he heard of the old saying? An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure!

“The paradigm of our current healthcare system is one of intervention: drugs, treatments and operations."

Yeah well that could have something to do with making money. If your teaching prevention and consequently people are fitter and healthier means on the treatment side,there is less need to go to see a quack and the treatment regime will be of shorter duration meaning less to pay out for medical treatment. Because, the number of pills that have to popped will be less, and the number of treatments required will be less,which equates less money for those non-medical people that like to make money at the expense of others well being.

About time. 

Plant-based Nutrition is Key to Health Transformation of St. Luke’s Hospital Director of Prevention and Wellness

Former team internist for the St. Louis Rams and St. Louis Cardinals, James Loomis, MD, now director of prevention and wellness at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri, dropped 60 pounds and nearly 100 cholesterol points and now counsels his patients to experience dramatic results by shifting to a predominantly whole foods, plant-based diet. Dr. Loomis’ personal and professional paradigm-shift was sparked by his own metabolic syndrome diagnosis and a happenstance viewing of the documentary, Forks Over Knives.

I now have a new paradigm of wellness—for myself and for my patients—and strongly believe that this paradigm is essential for all physicians in our healthcare system.

Chesterfield, MO (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

The former internist for the St. Louis Rams and St. Louis Cardinals, James Loomis, MD, now serves as director of prevention and wellness at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, MO. It was his own personal encounter with a metabolic syndrome diagnosis and a happenstance viewing of the documentary, Forks Over Knives, that he credits with sparking the paradigm-shift that has transformed both his own health and his medical practice.

“The average medical student gets 30 minutes of nutrition education in medical school, so I find it ironic that, as a medical doctor, it took Netflix to open my eyes to the power of prevention through whole foods, plant-based nutrition,” said Dr. Loomis. “The paradigm of our current healthcare system is one of intervention: drugs, treatments and operations; yet, the food we eat is a far more powerful drug than any treatment option available on a prescription pad. For me, the clarity of this was astounding.”
