Hence why I believe the most important health factor to focus on and is linked to most all diseases.....is reversing insulin resistance.

Good stuff.

Good one.

Of course the reaction is to figure out how to manipulate genes based on this--because we all know that carbs are essential to health and intimately tied to insulin!

Check this out, on the same note. Don't yell DUH too loudly!:
The Five Behaviors to Live Past 90
1) Don't Smoke
Smokers had double the risk of dying before 90 compared with non-smokers.

2) Keep a Healthy Weight
Obese men were 44 percent more likely to die before 90 than non-obese men.

3) Avoid High Blood Pressure
Men with high blood pressure were 28 percent more likely to die before 90.

4) Exercise Regularly
Men who exercised regularly reduced their risk of death by 20 percent to 30 percent, compared to men who never did.

5) Avoid Diabetes
Men with diabetes were 86 percent more likely to die before 90 than men without the illness.
So, we have:
Don't inhale the burning smoke of a nightshade.
Control your insulin--that would seem to cover *3* (some would even say 4) of the above issues!

Hmm, I remember reading a science article within the past year or two about genetically engineered rats/mice that had insulin removed lived like 50% longer or something. I guess this is why with that gene that insulin inhibits with tumor suppression and stuff. Interesting.
