Soon to be world’s second richest man and Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos commits to 10 billion dollars to fight climate change through the Bezos Earth Fund. He wrote that he wants to work along side others both to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting the devastating impact of climate change on this planet we all share. Funding is going towards scientists activists, and NGOs as well as any effort that offers a real possibility to help preserve and protect the natural world. The first batch of grant recipients will be announced this summer. A report released by the USDA shows that over 780,000 primates, dogs and cats along with tens of millions of rats mice, fish, and birds were used in experiments in 2018. A little over 56,000 animals were in experiments without any pain relief. After pressure from groups such as The White Coat Waste Project (WCW) The Food and Drug Administration enacted a policy that allows animals used in lab experiments to be adopted by shelters and sanctuaries after testing ends. Previously, all animals were euthanized. Healthy rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs, cats and some farmed animals will now be able to retire We interviewed Cyrus and Robby from Mastering Diabetes for the SoFlo Vegans Podcast. This corresponds perfectly with the recent news that a new intervention called the NFI Protocol has been shown in studies to reverse type 2 diabetes in 84 percent of patients. These studies are peer-reviewed and accessible to doctors and will soon be available to the public. In this clip Cyrus and Robby talk about their brand new book Mastering Diabetes: The Revolutionary Method to Reverse Insulin Resistance. This book basically goes into like painstaking detail here about what is diabetes what causes it and how can you how can you truly reverse this insulin resistance issue It’s a book that has more than 800 scientific references in it. Because we made sure as we were going through this we were trying to be as impartial as possible. We didn’t want to be those guys who are just finding research to back up our already preconceived notion. That a plant-based diet is good for you. We wanted to find a lot of data that actually showed the benefits of a low carbohydrate diet and tried to really investigate as unbiased as possible. We definitely recommend that people gain knowledge okay. Parents, the best thing they can do gain knowledge. So read this book. Understand insulin resistance. Understand all the tips and tricks we provide for insulin dependant diabetes to make your blood glucose easier to manage. Or make your child’s blood glucose easier to manage. Understand the benefits of fiber. High water content. Of insulin timing. And all that stuff. In addition to reading other books. Like I would recommend the Forks Over Knives Family book. So if you’re a parent and have a young child gain more information about the whole journey of raising your child on a healthy plant-based diet through additional resources. We would like to thank Robby and Cyrus for appearing on the podcast.
