THIS Poison Causes Diabetes

Every day, you and your love ones are forced to make contact with a dangerous poison. 

It’s on the receipt papers you touch… the plastic water bottles you drink from… and it’s even in the canned foods you serve your family. 

And yet the FDA has done nothing to protect you from it.

But that’s all about to change.

Because new research shows that this everyday poison could be the REAL REASON you have diabetes. 

Fortunately, there are ways to avoid it. 

I’m talking about the plastic additive bisphenol-A – commonly called BPA

This toxic chemical can wreak havoc on your body because it mimics your hormones. 

And this disturbing effect has been linked to heart disease… brain damage… and even deadly cancers.

Now we know it can mess with your blood sugar, too. 

For the study, published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society, researchers gave 16 volunteers a daily dose of BPA. It was equivalent to what you would be exposed to in everyday life.  

All subjects had their insulin levels tested before and after BPA exposure.

And the results were SHOCKING… 

This minimal amount of BPA significantly raises your insulin level and increases insulin resistance –two of the key drivers behind diabetes.

The authors of the study are calling BPA a direct “path” to type 2 diabetes.

Even more frightening? Many Americans are exposed to much more daily BPA than the participants in this study. 

And every time you touch it… your insulin levels go up.

The FDA has only banned BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups.

So it’s up to you to protect yourself and your family. 

Here are a few tips to get you started: 

  • Never handle shopping receipts – if you don’t need one, have a cashier toss it out or opt for an e-mailed receipt instead.
  • Avoid canned foods unless the label clearly reads: “BPA-free.”
  • Never microwave food in plastic dishes of any kind.
  • Store leftovers in glass containers rather than plastic.
