What is the CAUSE of the GLOBAL DIABETES EPIDEMIC that threatens the health and economy of many nations? If you believe that it is the overconsumption of SUGAR, OBESITY and a SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE, you’re only partially correct. Can  PESTICIDES CHEMICALS and HEAVY METALS Cause Diabetes? While these factors play an obvious role, a growing number of scientists recognize that the ever-increasing STRESS of ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS, PESTICIDES and HEAVY METALS is also a major underlying CAUSE of diabetes – just as threatening as sugar and poor lifestyle.

‘DIABETOGENS’ are ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS in our air, water, food and elsewhere that MIMIC (and thereby compete with) human biology. In the case of DIABETES, they wreak havoc on your ENDOCRINE SYSTEM, causing dysfunction of the pancreas, ultimately affecting INSULIN and blood sugar control.

Fortunately, ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS AND PESTICIDE-RELATED DIABETES can be helped if you know what specialized laboratory tests are useful and how to get rid of this type of HIDDEN TOXICITY.

Read on to discover how a natural and science-based approach to detecting and correcting these ENVIRONMENTAL POISONS can restore your BLOOD SUGAR and INSULIN HEALTH from a HIDDEN CAUSE. One that many doctors are not trained to suspect or treat.


What The Heck Are DIABETOGENS?


The term ’DIABETOGENS’ is just now starting to come into the scientific limelight, even though it dates all the way back to the early 1960s. A researcher coined the term to describe the ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS and TOXINS in the environment that MIMIC (and thereby compete with) human hormones.

Your pancreas is a delicately balanced organ. It less forgiving than other organs like the liver that have the ability to regenerate. This makes it extremely susceptible to the ACCUMULATION OF TOXINS, which can lead to INFLAMMATION (pancreatitis) and organ dysfunction, including DIABETES.

And while the body strives to be self-regulating and self-healing, if overwhelmed by TOXIC POISONS, the pancreas is often not able to cleanse itself of these harmful compounds.

What Toxins Affect Diabetes?

There is a strong correlation between the industrial rise of ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS over the past five decades and a corresponding and steady rise in diabetes. In the last 50 years, production of environmental CHEMICALS (including, but not limited to PESTICIDES) has risen more than 1,000 percent.

In today’s modern society, it’s impossible to fully avoid these dangerous substances.

We live in a sea of TOXINS, they’re everywhere and our bodies have become vulnerable to symptoms, sickness and even chronic, degenerative diseases, including one of the most destructive, DIABETES.

Some of the most problematic DIABETOGENS include: Top of Form Bottom of Form

  • ARSENICBISPHENOL A (BPA): BPA is utilized in the production of plastics, including food and drink packaging and liners in canned food.
  • ARSENIC: Exposure to arsenic is primarily through diet (seafood, poultry, rice) and drinking water.
  • DIOXINS: These “persistent organic pollutants” are used in many industrial processes.
  • PESTICIDES: Countless amounts of pesticides are sprayed on conventionally grown produce, but runoff is also a problem. Pesticides routinely contaminate drinking water and the air around farms.
  • PHTHALATES: These chemicals increase flexibility and durability in plastics. They’re also utilized in health and beauty aids, fragrances, and cosmetics. These toxins have been detected in milk, butter, and other fatty foods that are stored in plastic containers (because they are easily absorbed and stored by fats)


Research has found that these chemicals, among others, affect blood sugar control and pancreas function in a variety of ways.

BPA stimulates the pancreas cells, called ‘beta cells’—which are responsible for producing INSULIN. This leads to INSULIN RESISTANCE, which means the body becomes resistant to this hormone doing its job.

So, INSULIN RESISTANCE increases your risk of not only diabetes, but also obesity and visceral fat—the DANGEROUS FAT that accumulates around your vital organs.

In addition, research shows a direct connection between MERCURY, another HEAVY METAL and decreased insulin production.



As mentioned, ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS ARE ALL AROUND YOU. They are in your food, in the toiletries you use, in your furniture and rugs and in the air that you breathe.

ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS such as PESTICIDES are hard to avoid!

Beyond DIABETES, they impact a whole host of disease and disorders, from heart disease to obesity, from autoimmune disorder to neurological problems.

Ideally, you want to avoid diabetogens as much as possible, even though this is extremely difficult to do.

The next best thing is to get tested to see what diabetogenic toxins you’re carrying. Helpful tests include complete blood count (CBC), platelet count, homocysteine, bilirubin, and C-reactive protein (a major marker for INFLAMMATION.)

Urine and blood testing can also measure the presence of specific toxins, as can a test called the GGT (which measures levels of glutathione, a master antioxidant that is involved in detoxification).

If ADVANCED METABOLIC TESTING reveals that your TOXIN levels are high, there are a few things you can do to reduce your TOXIC BURDEN OR TOXIC LOAD.

Because of the TOXIC world we must navigate through every day of our lives, these are SIMPLE STEPS everyone should be taking. This is whether you get an ADVANCED METABOLIC PANEL or not (See reference to Vibrant America testing below),.

Over the next several years, as we see DIABETES CONTINUE TO SOAR, we’ll be hearing a lot more about the destructive effects of diabetogens. Moreover, about the technology to help REMOVE them from your body so that it can properly HEAL.

In the meantime, understand how these dangerous substances can harm your delicate pancreas, and start detoxing NOW.



Normally, your immune system defends against the daily assault of ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS and TOXICITY. But ONLY WHEN it is working correctly and NOT being OVERWHELMED by the extremely high TOXIC BURDEN all around us.

Failure of your body’s ability to detoxify toxins results in health issues.

Supporting the body’s ability to bind to and eliminate toxins is a key part of healing from environmental toxicity exposure.

So, you MUST support your body’s natural detoxification and drainage systems.

This is where ADVANCED SUPPLEMENTATION can be helpful.

It’s important to work with an experienced practitioner who can recommend the right supplements designed to remove these toxins directly.

New, emerging medical technology, designed to help combat ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS, PESTICIDES AND HEAVY METAL ACCUMULATION by BINDING TOXINS, increasing oxygen, enhancing your liver and thyroid, and SUPPORTING DRAINAGE systems (your body’s NATURAL ability to eliminate poisons from itself) are necessary to successfully recover from this kind of toxicity.

Let’s examine this more closely…


How do I get rid of these toxins in my body?

Special agents are required for this. They BIND toxins in the gut and in other tissues so they can be more easily excreted.

An excellent, natural REMEDY for BINDING environmental toxins is Carbon Technology

Made of specially-selected and precisely-formulated extracts of fulvic and humic acids, Carbon Technology uses these natural substances to tightly BIND toxins to help remove them from your body via stools.

The fulvic and humic acids in Carbon Technology have advantages to binders like activated charcoal and bentonite clay, two common binders. One big advantage is that Carbon Technology can travel beyond the gut.

Also, fulvic and humic acid extracts are a good source of nutrition, including amino acids, phytochemicals and minerals.  This is good since cells damaged by pesticides and environmental chemicals NEED TO SELF-REPAIR.

Supplements formulated with FULVIC ACID extracts designed to also enhance ATP production (your body’s ENERGY source) and THYROID METABOLISM greatly enhance your detoxification potential.

Correct supplements and botanicals are KEY to solving the ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS and PESTICIDE problem.


There Is Hope

 So, if you’ve ever asked “What is my doctor missing?” and suspect that ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICITY AND PESTICIDES may be a part of YOUR blood sugar challenges, including DIABETES do NOT give up.

The good news is that there are doctors with specialized knowledge who are ready with a science-backed action plan to DETECT AND CORRECT TOXICITY.

Addressing these ENVIRONMENTAL POISONS will take you from TOXICITY to PURITY, and allow you to get back to looking, feeling and functioning at your best.
