What Cats and Dogs Teach Us About Avoiding Feline Diabetes Mellitus and Canine Diabetes Mellitus
Feeding processed food diets to your pets is largely the cause of fatty liver and ultimately feline diabetes mellitus and canine diabetes mellitus, as well as a telling indication of our own food values. Our pets teach us that eating a processed food diet will lead to a diabetes mellitus in both human and animal.
According to the latest Banfield Hospital “State of Pet Health” Report, Feline Diabetes Mellitus, Canine Diabetes Mellitus and dental disease incidences are skyrocketing and this is mostly due a processed food diet. A new study by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences has confirmed that cats and dogs fed processed foods (aka, kibble) are destined to develop Feline Diabetes Mellitus and Canine Diabetes Mellitus.
Canine Diabetes Mellitus and Feline Diabetes Mellitus are conditions where the body cannot properly metabolize glucose from carbohydrates in cats and dogs. Sadly, Feline Diabetes Mellitus and Canine Diabetes Mellitus is the most common endocrine disease affecting both cats and dogs today, with its prevalence growing every year, according to Dogs Naturally Magazine.
Processed Cat And Dog Kibble Contains Wheat
Would you feed your child a bag of potato chips for every meal? This is equivalent to what we do to our pets when we feed kibble. In her groundbreaking book, Foods Pets Die For, Anne N. Martin reveals how kibble is made specifically to addict pets and why it will make your pet sick. Not only are rendered dogs, cats, horses and other wild road-kill a by-product in your pet’s kibble, the drugs used to euthanize many of them are hidden ingredients as well. What’s worse, (if anything can be worse) both cat and dog kibble that’s made in America contains wheat that has been dried down with glyphosate, which has been proven in a study by the journal Nature, to cause fatty liver in rats.
Type 2 Diabetes Is A Liver Issue
Fatty liver in both humans and pets is a by-product of the processed food diet. Science confirmed that glyphosate is a known cause of fatty liver. Fatty liver is a leading cause of Type 2 Diabetes in both human and animal. No matter how you slice it, be it canine, human or feline, adult onset diabetes and obesity is caused by an overburdened, fatty liver and ultimately diabetic result, due to inadequate diet.
What Do Pet Eating Habits Have To Do With Human Health?
Your pet is a reflection of your health values. If you are a pet owner who has no problem serving yourself or your family processed food meals, it’s likely your dog or cat eats them as well, contributing to these growing statistics.
Our pets have become an unintended live study on unnatural diets leading to unnatural outcomes. According to the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated fifty-eight percent of cats and fifty-four percent of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese.
Pet Obesity is Correlated With Human Obesity
The American Veterinary Association reports that obesity is a leading epidemic in the US for both humans and pets, with more than two-thirds (68.8 percent) of adults considered overweight or obese, and 53 percent of adult dogs and 55 percent of cats considered overweight or obese by their veterinarians.
