Dr. Fuhrman Cures Diabetes - But Drug Companies Object. Joel Fuhrman MD
has cured hundreds of people of diabetes using diet and lifestyle. The American
Diabetic Association wanted him to write about his work -- but then objected
because their sponsor, Eli Lilly drug company, might feel threatened by an MD
promoting a cure which could destroy the market for their diabetes medications.
This is an excerpt from Dr. Furhman's presentation at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo
2007. To learn more, or to get a copy of Dr. Fuhrman's full talk on DVD, go to:
