The authors concluded that “Lipids are an important source of chemical modification of tissue proteins, even in the absence of hyperglycemia,” and that B6 vitamer treatment with pyridoxamine reduced protein and lipid glycation and “…protected against renal and vascular pathology in a nondiabetic model” (of obesity).
Biostratum submitted a citizen petition to the FDA on July 29, 2005, seeking to disallow sales of pyridoxamine-containing supplements on the grounds that pyridoxamine, as the subject of an Investigational New Drug Application with the FDA, is a drug and not a dietary supplement. On January 12, 2009, the FDA ruled that products containing pyridoxamine are excluded from the definition of dietary supplements as defined by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. The FDA stated that the status of Pyridorin as an investigational new drug, as a result of an application filed by BioStratum in July 1999 and effective on September 1, 1999, meant that "the marketing of pyridoxamine in a dietary supplement is essentially equivalent to the marketing of an investigational new drug as a dietary supplement" because there was an "absence of independent, verifiable evidence that the substance was marketed as a food or a dietary supplement prior to its authorization for investigation as a new drug."

Glorious wrote:Also rail about big pharma you all like, but why wouldn't a nationalized single-payer system (like the NHS, which incidentally now owns Fleming's famous laboratory) pursue cheaper options if they were viable?
The NHS would love to cut costs and make their stakeholders healthier. Why would the entire British "medical establishment" conspire to suppress something that would save them an extraordinary amount of money?
This is what doctors actually say about this: "Make dietary/lifestyle changes so I don't have to see you as often and so I don't have to prescribe you medication."
What "business sense" does THAT make?
Igor_Pavinski wrote:Simple: human nature. Even if the doctors are sincere, the pharmas know that a large percentage of at-risk patients will FAIL to make the necessary dietary changes.

If a respected researcher can be ridiculed by the medical community for speaking the truth, then I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the reaction I am getting from you guys.

Like most other foods, consuming excessive quantities of sugar isn't a great idea regardless of its form, but the actual data isn't quite so clear cut as that. It does appear though that eating whole fresh fruits(one of the very few historical sources of fructose) doesn't have the same effect as the modern fizzy drinks and fruit juices.

Also, the diet is literally a bowl of steamed white rice with the equivalent volume of granulated sugar poured on top of it.

Igor_Pavinski wrote:I can only vouch for the diet that my friend followed and that included boiled white rice, two apples a day, a guava or a citrus fruit at every meal and sometimes, boiled chickpeas to go with the rice.
