The US Government Is Testing a Potential New Cure for Diabetes: The Keto Diet
Plus: Tell Me About Yo' GAINNNZZZZ

They're testing this on veterans they're treating.

Before anyone says, "The government shouldn't be involved in diet," well, yes, but it is already involved in diet, and has been for decades.

And it's been telling people to eat a diet which will kill them years earlier than they should die.

The Department of Veteran Affairs is experimenting with the keto diet to treat diabetic patients, partnering with a company called Virta Health to provide free treatments to 400 veterans.

The treatment is based on research showing that low-carb diets can prevent spikes in blood sugar, effectively "reversing" the symptoms of diabetes.

Critics are concerned the high fat content of the keto diet could have potential health risks in the long-term for veterans, including raising cholesterol levels and reducing other nutrients.

Most "critics" are diehard vegans who pretend to be concerned about human health but actually just care about cows and pigs.

So: What are your GAINZZZ?


This week, I will have the ultimate in GAINZZZZ -- SHELVING GAINZZZ.

And my SHELVZZZZ have held up so well I'm going to move from strength to strength and try some WALL-MOUNTED TV GAINZZZ.

I'm going to put the TV right above my bed, in the guillotine position, just to prove how good I am with DRILLZZZZ.

And yes, I know where the reverse switch is now.
