You can use diet to reprogram cells without having to make any genetic alterations

Fasting diet 'regenerates diabetic pancreas'


Excerpt: "The pancreas can be triggered to regenerate itself through a type of fasting diet, say US researchers. Restoring the function of the organ - which helps control blood sugar levels - reversed symptoms of diabetes in animal experiments.

The study, published in the journal Cell, says the diet reboots the body. Experts said the findings were "potentially very exciting" as they could become a new treatment for the disease.

People are advised not to try this without medical advice.

In the experiments, mice were put on a modified form of the "fasting-mimicking diet". It is like the human form of the diet when people spend five days on a low-calorie, low-protein, low-carbohydrate but high unsaturated-fat diet.

It resembles a vegan diet with nuts and soups, but with around 800 to 1,100 calories a day.
Then they have 25 days eating what they want - so overall it mimics periods of feast and famine. Previous research has suggested it can slow the pace of ageing."

My comment: So far, we've been taught that Diabetes I and II are caused by genetic mutations. For example:


Seems again that genes are not drivers. There's not a single mutation that can be reliably associated with a certain heritable disease or trait. Mutations are results of bad diet, oxidation, stress and harmful chemicals. There are stronger agents that are capable of affecting insulin production; short and long non-coding RNA-molecules and numerous epigenetic markers in the RNA regulate and control the protein production.

Life is not driven by genes. Genes are driven by lifestyle. The theory of Evolution has no mechanisms. These clever mechanisms point to Creation and Intelligent Design.
