Drying Up the Root – Science Links

Drying Up the Root – Science Links


In my video “Drying Up the Root – LCHF and the Fasting Cure”, I talked about a lot of very different conditions that could be pictured as branches of the same tree, with a common underlying root, insulin resistance and chronically high insulin levels (what scientists call “hyperinsulinemia”).

In this post, I want to give you several references to solid sources of information on those many connections.


Banting Lecture 1988. Role of Insulin Resistance in Human Disease

by Gerald M. Reaven
This is the paper that got the attention of the research community, it’s important because it connects insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia as the root of all the other diseases in this syndrome.

The deadly quartet. Upper-body obesity, glucose intolerance, hypertriglyceridemia, and hypertension.

by Norman M. Kaplan

Another of the important early papers to define Insulin Resistance Syndrome.

– this is a highly technical article that covers this “tree” in great detail – from the famous illnesses that I covered, to a host of eye sight problems, skin problems, hormone problems that cause early periods in girls and early balding in men.

    Great video. I LOVE your outdoor videos. Always great info but the settings makes them even more enjoyable. One of the main reasons that I want to lose weight and get healthier is so that I can get back to the woods. I used to love hiking and camping in GA, NC and TN. Need to get back there!! Did I say thank you?? Well,. THANK YOU!
