Propylene Glycol is found in antifreeze, paint, brake fluid, and your favorite ice cream.

propylene glycol

The  FDA claims this toxic chemical is safe for our food supply.  Learn more.

 Check the ingredient list of your cake or any baking mix, prepared frosting, icing, baked goods from supermarkets, biscuits, croissants, cakes, sweets, beer, beverages, salad dressings, and water flavor enhancers plus so many more.  If you see the words PROPYLENE GLYCOL, you may want to reconsider.


Why is this a problem?

Directly From Dow Chemical:

Propylene Glycol is used in:

Foods and flavors

Pet food and animal feed

Fragrance, cosmetics, personal care

Paint and Coatings

Polyester Resins


Aircraft deicing fluid

Coolants and Antifreeze

Brake and Hydraulic fluid

Yes, propylene glycol is found in your cake and is a component of antifreeze.  It de-ices airplanes and is in your salad dressing.  It is part of paint and polyester resins as well as in your Mio flavored water enhancer.  It is in brake fluid and in Costco cookies.

Yikes….so why did the FDA approve propylene glycol to be part of the safe for human consumption ruling that lets this chemical be a part of so many of our foods and beverages?

 Directly from the Daily Meal:

 Propylene glycol is an organic chemical compound nobody talked much about until recently, when Fireball Cinnamon Whisky was pulled off the shelves in three Scandinavian countries for containing too much of the ingredient to meet European Union standards. The chemical is used as a solvent and as the primary ingredient in non-toxic antifreeze and as the “e-liquid” in e-cigarettes. Propylene glycol is considered safe by the FDA in small quantities, although it can be toxic in large doses. And it’s more common than you think. It’s widely used in food and drink products as a thickener and preservative, or to add a little bit of sweetness.

 Though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has assured us that it would be virtually impossible to ingest toxic amounts of the compound through consumer products, in large doses, propylene glycol poisoning might cause skin irritation or itchiness and redness, and acute levels of exposure might could cause cardiovascular or neurotoxilogical issues.

Toxic or not, we thought you might like to know whether this solvent and antifreeze is hiding in products you eat and drink. The Daily Meal dug up seven of the most common foods and beverages that contain propylene glycol.

Flavored Iced Teas

The world may run on Dunkin’, but Dunkin’ Donuts flavored iced tea runs on propylene glycol. Here, the ingredient is likely used to bump up sweetness. The good news is that the regular variety of iced tea at Dunkin’ has zero prop-gly in it. Nestea “flavored liquid water enhancers” also have propylene glycol, but Lipton’s do not.

Ice Cream

Most vanilla varieties don’t include propylene glycol. But if you want to be sure not to ingest any propylene glycol, avoid Blue Bunny cones of any flavor or Edy’s peppermint ice cream. Cold Stone Creamery serves 17 different ice cream varieties in all locations that include prop-gly.


 From Propylene-Glycol.com

Propylene glycol USP/EP (pharmaceutical grade) is the only grade appropriate for application in food due to its handling practices.

Propylene glycol USP/EP is the ideal carrier of a large variety of flavours that give most of today’s food and beverage their distinctive taste. The substance itself is colour-, taste- and odourless, and it does not react on its own, which means that it can perform its function without impacting on other product attributes.

This product has been confirmed safe, and provides unique inherent properties with regard to holding/attracting both water- and oil-based substances. In food, it is used to retain food colour pigments and provide for homogeneous distribution within the mixture. Direct food contact uses include:

solvent and carrier for flavour and colour in food and beverage manufacturing processes, for drinks, biscuits, cakes, sweets

thickenerclarifierand stabilizer in food and beverage such as beer, salad dressings or baking mixtures

So, now that you know the truth about Propylene Glycol….please check the ingredient list on prepared food products and choose to lose this chemical.

Painting a rosy picture of a new class of type 2 diabetes drugs: The GLT2 Inhibitors.  Don’t get too excited, there are major thorns in this “rose bush”.  Here are the facts.   

rose with thorns

As of today, there are 3 drugs in the GLT2 inhibitor class of diabetes medications; Farxiga, Invokana, and Jardiance.  The FDA recently gave its approval of these drugs….perhaps a bit too soon.

GLT2 inhibitors work independent of insulin levels in the blood; they lower blood sugar by blocking resorption of glucose by the kidney and increasing the excretion of glucose in the urine.  These drugs put stress on the kidneys….organs that are already targeted in people with type 2 diabetes.

Do you know what causes nephropathy as a complication of diabetes (that can result in kidney failure and the need for kidney dialysis?  Excess blood glucose traveling through the kidney when diabetes is out of control.  When blood glucose rises over 200mg/dL, the kidneys respond by filtering excess sugar out of the blood and into the urine.  Many years ago, those with diabetes “tested” their urine glucose to ascertain if their blood sugar might be over 200mg/dL.

So, these new drugs cause the kidneys to fail to reabsorb blood sugar into the blood stream,  and cause it to leave the body in urination.  I wonder if those taking the drug realize that these drugs may actually ramp  up their  production of glucose by stimulating the liver’s release of glucose?  Ah, the manufacturers had an idea here….Add metformin to GLT2 drugs as metformin helps decrease the liver’s release of glycogen

It’s getting foggy in here!  Each pill costs 8.77….263.10 per month.

The drug manufacturers also claim these drugs help with weight loss…as this is a HUGE selling point for any diabetes medication.

The drug manufacturers own clinical research was used.  Although GLT2 drugs have recently claimed to lower cardiovascular risk…the truth is that a clinical study of patients at high risk for CVD showed that 13 patients had a major clinical event (stroke/heart attack) within the first 30 days of taking the drug whereas only 1 participant in the placebo group had an event.

The biggest rub?  Jardiance is being toted as the first diabetes drug to LOWER cardiovascular risk. (This will last for a short time before more people have heart attacks and strokes and they have to put a warning on the label).  Don’t be hoodwinked.

It’s unfortunate that the label of the drugs include no warnings about heart attacks and strokes.

“One third of the experts on the FDA committee who reviewed the research J&J provided (their own studies) about Invokana advised against approving this drug (5 out of 15). They also expressed concern that this drug might be more dangerous for people with kidney disease–which of course, describes a lot of people with Type 2 Diabetes who have followed conventional medical advice”.

As we have learned from every new and expensive diabetes drug released in the past 20 years, the bulk of the side effects won’t show until millions of prescriptions have been written and thousands of unknowing patients develop complications.  Why is this the case?  Because FDA approval of medication is fast tracked and drugs are approved too quickly without checking the long term effects of these medications.  It’s a rush to the “Big Bucks” and the FDA is part of this very dangerous game.  By the time the major side effects rear their had, Big Pharma has already made billions of dollars, will pay off a small percentage in lawsuits, and move onto another fast tracked drug.

Potential Side Effects of GLT2 diabetes drugs:

  1. Ketoacidosis in Type 2

The FDA issued a warning on 5/15/2015 stating that it had received a significant number of aftermarket reports linking this class of drugs to ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a very serious, potentially fatal condition where the acid level in the blood rises dangerously high. Ketoacidosis makes people very sick and if untreated can be fatal. Symptoms of ketoacidosis include: difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion, and unusual fatigue or sleepiness.

But diabetic ketoacidosis occurs in people with type 1 diabetes who have very elevated blood glucose..usually above 300mg/dL.  People taking GLT2 drugs have shown potentially deadly ketoacidosis with only modestly elevated blood glucose…most likely due to how they impact the kidneys..

If you are someone with type 2 diabetes on a very low carb diet (like a ketogenic diet), don’t take GLT2 medications as they may block the process that keeps ketone levels in the safe range. FDA Drug Safety Communication: FDA warns that SGLT2 inhibitors for diabetes may result in a serious condition of too much acid in the blood

  1. Bone Fracture Risk and Decreased Bone Mineral Density

On Sept 10, 2015, the FDA issued a Safety Alert for Invokana and Invokamet, stating that “Bone fractures have been seen in patients taking the type 2 diabetes medicine canagliflozin [Invokana].Fractures can occur as early as 12 weeks after starting canagliflozin. Canagliflozin has also been linked to decreases in bone mineral density at the hip and lower spine.”

Though the warning specifically mentioned Invokana, the oldest drug in this class, the warning bulletin also said “FDA is continuing to evaluate the risk of bone fractures with other drugs in the SGLT2 inhibitor class, including Farxiga, Xigduo XR, Jardiance, Glyxambi, Synjardy), to determine if additional label changes or studies are needed.”

FDA:Invokana and Invokamet (canagliflozin): Drug Safety Communication – New Information on Bone Fracture Risk and Decreased Bone Mineral Density

It’s most likely that the increased risk for decreased bone density and bone fractures because of GLT2’s kidney involvement. Remember that the kidneys are involved with the excretion or reabsorption of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.  Also, those with type 2 diabetes already have an increased risk of osteoporosis and osteopenia

  1. Urinary Tract Infections and Yeast Infections

GLT2’s can cause yeast infections in women and uncircumcised men. (Remember all the sugary urine passing from the kidney, to the bladder, and into the urine.  Sugary urine is a perfect food for yeast).

  1. Decreased Kidney Function

“INVOKANA increases serum creatinine and decreases eGFR [glomerular filtration rate.]”  It also raises the risk of dangerous low blood pressure and hyperalkemia (high potassium levels) especially in people taking blood pressure medication.

  1. Effect on Blood Sugar

On average, the lower dose of GLT2’s  lowered fasting blood sugar from 173 mg/dl to 155 mg/dl—Not a big deal as blood glucose remains high enough to damage the nerves, kidneys, retinas, blood vessels, circulation, etc

By the way, the prescribing information that goes to physicians about these drugs do NOT report the post meal sugars when GLT2’s are taken alone.  The results are only reported for GLT2’s plus metformin.  And….it lowers blood glucse to the same degree that metformin alone would lower it!

Even when GLT2’s were combined with metformin, post-meal blood sugars were unimpressive. Patients not taking GLT2’s plus metformin had 2 hour post meal blood glucose averaging 260mg/dL.  This blood glucose level is definitely in the range to cause diabetes complications.  Patients taking Invokana plus metformin averaged 208mg/dl….a high post prandial blood glucose that would also cause diabetes complications.

  1. Bladder Cancer. Farxiga is one of the 3 GLT2’s.  The  FDA originally rejected it as too dangerous, but approved it in January of 2014. There were more cases of bladder cancer among those taking Farxiga than in the group that did not take it.

Just say “No” to Brand New Diabetes Drugs that do not have a proven, safe long term track record!

If your doctor tries to put you on these new drugs, consider saying no. Use an alternate blood glucose control plan, wait ten years, and see what scientists have found out about its real effects on patients before you try it.

My suggestion….You can control blood glucose wonderfully with MINIMAL medications or side effects.  The medications I will recommend have been on the market for over 50 years.   They are no longer “owned” by the pharmaceutical company that discovered them and are significantly less expensive than the latest side- effect ridden offerings.

Try this:

  1. Give yourself 8 weeks following Step One of the Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE. During this time, check your blood sugar as soon as you awaken and get out of bed in the morning AND two hours after the START of a meal.  You are shooting for 120mg/dL or under fasting blood glucose and 140mg/dL or under two hours after the start of a meal.
  2. Have labs drawn within 6 months of starting the program including (fasting) glucose, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, HbA1C, and Vitamin D. Know your starting blood pressure.
  3. Get a starting weight and body measurements including: neck, chest, under the bra line (women only), waist, tummy roll, hips, thighs, calves.
  4. Test blood sugar twice a day (fasting and 2 hours after the start of one meal) and record results to show to MD


After 8 weeks on the program …..show the MD or health care provider your home blood glucose test results and changes in your weight and body measurements. Labs should be repeated at this time.  You should see MAJOR improvement in these labs. Many people with type 2 diabetes may have excellent labs, blood pressure, etc. without needing medication.

If your physician wants to add medication based on your numbers, he or she might consider Metformin with breakfast and dinner…working up to 1500mg/day.  I prefer ultimately taking 500mg with breakfast, 500mg with dinner, and 500mg with bedtime snack.

  1. Continue on Step One for another 8 weeks making sure you have your new weight, measurements, blood pressure and lab work are complete. Continue to check blood glucose fasting and 2 hours after the start of one meal/day.  After 8 weeks, blood pressure, weight, measurements, and labs can be repeated to show continuing improvement.
  2. If MD or health care provider wants tighter control of your blood pressure, home glucose numbers, and lab work, he/she may choose to add an old-school, proven medication like glyburide or glipizide to actively lower blood glucose.
  3. Move to Step 2, add the glipizide or glyburide to the metformin and repeat everything after 8 weeks.
  4. If, after 8 weeks on Step Two, your MD wants tighter glucose control, they may keep the metformin on board and use insulin. This will happen in very few cases.

The Metabolism Miracle is your best chance at your very best weight, measurements, blood pressure, blood glucose, lipids, Vitamin D, and A1C

Big Pharma….Framing older, much less expensive medications to increase their sales. Smearing proven medications with potentially deadly consequences

big pharma does not create cures

A recent study (on MedPage, September 15, 2015) out of the UK framed a 50+ year old medication…one of two essential oral diabetes medications listed by the World Health Organization…as increasing the risk of cancer.  

Read on to learn the reason behind this madness and get a plan to empower yourself to require the least amount of medication for controlling your type 2 diabetes.

Glyburide…also known as  Diabeta, Glynase, and Micronase….was first developed 50 years ago.  As of 2003, it has been the #1 sulfonylurea in the US.  Metformin…also known as Glucophage… is the #1 recommended diabetes medication in the world and has been used for over 55 years.

Glyburide and Metformin (both available as generics) are the two diabetes medications recommended in the World Health Organization Model List of Essential Medicines to help control type 2 diabetes.  In short, they are tried and true “old drugs” that work without serious side effects.  And comparatively speaking, they are much less expensive than the newer medications that have potentially deadly side effects.

And so, 50 years later, Glyburide, the main sulfonylurea prescribed in the US, is smeared as causing an increased risk of cancer.  Actually, glyburide does NOT cause an increased risk of cancer in those with diabetes, uncontrolled diabetes increases the risk for cancerAnd the longer a person has diabetes that is not properly controlled, the higher their risk for certain cancers.

Cancer of the breast, pancreas, colon, skin, ovaries, prostate, and uterus are linked to insulin imbalance and blood sugar fluctuations.   The longer a person has uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, the greater the risk for developing these cancers.

Every single new diabetes medication recently added to the diabetes medication arsenal has been linked to MAJOR side effects including damage to the liver, kidneys, pancreas, increased cancer risk, chronic joint pain and offers less improvement than the old standbys (metformin and glyburide).

Why blame glyburide, a medication with a 50 year track record as being a cancer causer?

Follow the money:

Pharmaceutical companies are spending billions of dollars to research, develop, and QUICKLY release diabetes medications to the market.  Within short order, these new drugs are prescribed to millions of people …and, within short order,  the side effects are noted.  At this point, the company has made billions of dollars and can withstand the negative publicity when the side effects are made public.


I’ll name the following “new” diabetes medications that have all been cited (after their release to the public) for major potential side effects:









But, the diabetes population is becoming savvy and tired of the bad news with their newest prescriptions ….More and more, people are opting OUT of the new diabetes drug market and going back to the basics:  Metformin and Glyburide.  Both are generics and both are much less expensive than the new medications.

The old standbys are a threat to the pharmaceutical companies who have invested billions of dollars developing the newer potentially deadly medications.



If you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, ask your health care provider about this plan:

  1. Begin following the proven, scientifically sound lifestyle that is designed to match the metabolism of those who have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes: The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE.
  2. Test blood glucose first thing in the morning as soon as you get out of bed before food. (Goal is 120 or less on your home meter) AND two hours AFTER THE START of a meal (Goal is 140 or less on your home meter).
  3. After 8 weeks on The Metabolism Miracle, report your much improved blood glucose readings to the health care provider who manages your diabetes. These readings will be “the best that they can possibly be.”
  4. If your MD feels it’s necessary and your medical history permits, consider adding Metformin. For those with pre diabetes, work up to 1500mg/day.  Those with type 2 diabetes will work up to 2000mg/day.  Take with a meal (typically with breakfast and with dinner).  Continue to check your blood glucose first thing in the morning and 2 hours after the start of a meal and report these readings to your MD at the end of eight weeks.
  5. If your MD or health care provider desires an additional medication to help control your blood glucose, and your medical condition allows, consider adding glyburide to your medications.
  6. Continue living The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress and checking blood glucose.


This technique will allow you to be on the LEAST amount of medication and save yourself from the potential from the heavy side effects linked to the newer medications.  Some people with diabetes will find out that living the Metabolism Miracle lifestyle enables them to become diabetes medication free!

Aging too quickly? Weight increasing and health decreasing? Put the brakes on, TODAY.

get healthy 1

A recent UCLA study reveals “Age-related diseases can be delayed by keeping gut bacteria in balance”. 

 Immediately following the research article is the Truth by Diane Kress.  Feel free to skip ahead to the Truth…It will set you free….

presented by Stonehearth News:  The UCLA study:

Why do some people remain healthy into their 80s and beyond, while others age faster and suffer serious diseases decades earlier? New research led by UCLA life scientists may produce a new way to answer that question — and an approach that could help delay declines in health.

Specifically, the study suggests that analyzing intestinal bacteria could be a promising way to predict health outcomes as we age.

The researchers discovered changes within intestinal microbes that precede and predict the death of fruit flies. The findings were published in the open-source journal Cell Reports.

“Age-onset decline is very tightly linked to changes within the community of gut microbes,” said David Walker, a UCLA professor of integrative biology and physiology, and senior author of the research. “With age, the number of bacterial cells increase substantially and the composition of bacterial groups changes.”

The study used fruit flies in part because although their typical life span is just eight weeks, some live to the age equivalent of humans’ 80s and 90s, while others age and die much younger. In addition, scientists have identified all of the fruit fly’s genes and know how to switch individual ones on and off.

In a previous study, the UCLA researchers discovered that five or six days before flies died, their intestinal tracts became more permeable and started leaking.

In the latest research, which analyzed more than 10,000 female flies, the scientists found that they were able to detect bacterial changes in the intestine before the leaking began. As part of the study, some fruit flies were given antibiotics that significantly reduce bacterial levels in the intestine; the study found that the antibiotics prevented the age-related increase in bacteria levels and improved intestinal function during aging.

The biologists also showed that reducing bacterial levels in old flies can significantly prolong their life span.

“When we prevented the changes in the intestinal microbiota that were linked to the flies’ imminent death by feeding them antibiotics, we dramatically extended their lives and improved their health,” Walker said. (Microbiota are the bacteria and other microorganisms that are abundant in humans, other mammals, fruit flies and many other animals.)

Flies with leaky intestines that were given antibiotics lived an average of 20 days after the leaking began — a substantial part of the animal’s life span. On average, flies with leaky intestines that did not receive antibiotics died within a week.

The intestine acts as a barrier to protect our organs and tissue from environmental damage.

“The health of the intestine — in particular the maintenance of the barrier protecting the rest of the body from the contents of the gut — is very important and might break down with aging,” said Rebecca Clark, the study’s lead author. Clark was a UCLA postdoctoral scholar when the research was conducted and is now a lecturer at England’s Durham University.

The biologists collaborated with William Ja, an assistant professor at Florida’s Scripps Research Institute, and Ryuichi Yamada, a postdoctoral research associate in Ja’s laboratory, to produce an additional group of flies that were completely germ-free, with no intestinal microbes. Those flies showed a very dramatic delay in intestinal damage, and they lived for about 80 days, approximately one-and-a-half times as long as the animal’s typical life span.

Scientists have recently begun to connect a wide variety of diseases, including diabetes and Parkinson’s, among many others, to changes in the microbiota, but they do not yet know exactly what healthy microbiota look like.

“One of the big questions in the biology of aging relates to the large variation in how we age and how long we live,” said Walker, who added that scientific interest in intestinal microbes has exploded in the last five years.

When a fruit fly’s intestine begins to leak, its immune response increases substantially and chronically throughout its body. Chronic immune activation is linked with age-related diseases in people as well, Walker said.

Walker said that the study could lead to realistic ways for scientists to intervene in the aging process and delay the onset of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other diseases of aging — although such progress could take many years, he said.

The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging (grants R01AG037514, R01AG049157 and R01AG040288) and the UCLA Institute of Genomics and Proteomics.

The TRUTH about delaying or preventing age-related medical conditions by Diane Kress, RD CDE

It is real shame that this research time, money, and effort studying  how bacteria in the gut possibly  influences the aging process and age- related medical conditions…  when the real answer for EVERYDAY  PEOPLE (not scientists) to intervene in the aging process and delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, as well as metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia (cholesterol and triglycerides), obesity and overweight has to do with normalizing the fat gain hormone; insulin. (No gut involved!)

I often wonder why researchers continually skirt the true issue at hand.  Insulin imbalance and insulin resistance hastens the aging process and is the “missing link” for over 25 medical conditions; yet it is not at the top of research dealing with a multitude of health issues that ultimately contribute to a life tied to a multitude of medical and pharmaceutical interventions.

Worse yet, there is no mention that specific lifestyle changes and NOT more medications would markedly decrease or prevent medical conditions related to aging, overweight, obesity.

These 25+ medical conditions (most occurring in aging adults) ARE related to insulin imbalance and insulin resistance.  If you or someone you love has any (or many) of these conditions, they can quickly impact their health and wellness with one simple program.  They will begin to look and feel better within 10 short days of starting the changes and their lab work and blood pressure will show significant improvements after just eight weeks.

The following 25 medical conditions or diseases have a common denominator:  Insulin imbalance and insulin resistance!



Visceral fat (abdominal fat that builds around the stomach and between organs)

NAFLD (non-alcohol related fatty liver disease)

Sleep Apnea


Cardiovascular disease



Heart Attack


Elevated cholesterol

Elevated triglycerides

Low Vitamin D levels

High Fasting insulin (8 or over)

Metabolic Syndrome

Insulin Resistance


Pre diabetes

Gestational diabetes

Type 2 diabetes


Cancer (breast, colon, skin, uterine, ovaries, prostate)

Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease

Pancreatitis (non -alcohol related)

Could it be that these specific lifestyle changes will quickly reduce the need for doctor visits, specialist visits, and trillions of dollars in pharmaceuticals that merely Band-Aid medical conditions?  I sincerely hope that is not the case, but I strongly suggest it is.  The #1 thriving industry in the US is the pharmaceutical and medical industry.  Coffers are filled when we become and remain unhealthy.

No medication is required to start enhancing weight loss, regaining health, improving energy level, and looking and feeling years younger….and therein may lie the problem.  Within eight weeks of living this lifestyle, medication needs will most likely be decreased or eliminated and continued lab work will improve and in many cases, return to normal.

The program can be found in Diane Kress’ The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle.  The books can be ordered through Amazon.com or any online bookstore or brick and mortar shop.  www.themetabolismmiracle.com.

I wish everyone who reads this article the very best.  It is extremely hard for me to sit back knowing that the answer is available right now…instead of this hooey from the UCLA study:

Walker said that the study could lead to realistic ways for scientists to intervene in the aging process and delay the onset of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other diseases of aging — although such progress could take many years, he said”.

“Kress says there is a proven, state- of –the- science, medically sound lifestyle program that will immediately intervene in the aging process and delay or prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other diseases of aging — and you can begin today with The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE.

To our health,
