This proposal about insulin resistance being at the cause of cardiovascular disease is not new. Dr. Reaven’s book “Syndrome X” proposed this issue years ago and the traditional systems of health have long promoted the eating of fats and a healthy balance with carbohydrates. Regardless, it’s good to see researching continuing on this subject.
