Globally insulin become scarce to meet the supply Date 26-11-2018 From Nalin Anthoni Pillai, Scientist To BBC World News – London Sir, I am shock to see an article today in a popular news paper titled as “Why the world is set to run out of Insulin” appeared in ‘The Times of India’ dated 26-11-2018 stating “A global diabetes epidemic is fuelling record demand for insulin but tens of millions will not get the injections they need unless there is a dramatic improvement in access and affordability, a new study concluded on Wednesday. Diabetes –which can lead to blindness, kidney failure, heart problems, neuropathic pain, and amputations – now affects 9% of all adults worldwide, up from 5% in 1990. The vast majority have type 2 diabetes, the kind linked to obesity and lack of exercise and cases are spreading particularly rapidly in the developing world as people adopt more Western, urban lifestyles.” Now the time has come for all of us to be cautious to restrict diabetes in the future which is a leading cause for all non-communicable diseases. In this modern world how to control diabetes without insulin is a problematic one for all health conscious people. Even exercise won’t help much once pancreas fail to secrete the necessary insulin. How to live a healthy life without external insulin Prehistoric people didn’t have diabetes because they all were living a life depending to live on trees. Slowly it was initiated through Stone-age man was the stepping stone for diabetes who made the right hand stronger than the left hand and for left hander it was other way round. But it became more prominent in this modern world such as heavy machineries, overheating of the global warming cause by pollution through this fossil materials, eating most of junk food, even electronic gadgets as well as desk top work -- all started affecting the endocrine system in abysmal state that causes diabetes in many people. To avoid this type 1 and type 2 diabetes one has to resort to light energy to increase the level of voltage in the brain to enhance the dipole dipole force which is nothing but Higgs boson particles rendering them to carry more oxygen in the ionize blood cells. This excess oxygen energizes all the organs by storing energy in the mitochondrial organelles through the medium of light. This also had been stated by Prof. Ahmed H. Zewail who won the Nobel Prize for his invention in ‘Femtochemistry’ that light has the power of curing many killer diseases (article titled as “Femtochemistry could open up new possibilities” appeared in The Hindu dated 23-10-2002. Same was addressed to the former President of United States Mr. Bill Clinton who congratulated me through their letter dated June-22-2000 before ‘Disclosing the Human Genome’ After receiving Bill Clinton’s letter I had written more than two hundred papers regard to brain which had been displayed in the Face Book as well as in my websites. Relating to rising temperature some of my papers which had been displayed under this website titled as ‘Secrets of the brain unraveled’ under sub heading titled as “How to avoid diabetes occurring from bad air? can be assessed from this website https://nalinsbrainresearch.blogspot.com/…/how-to-avoid-dia… Now this dangerous diabetes cause by pancreas which is likely to disrupt vital organs can be avoided by controlling the insulin secretion level through the medium of light. By this interaction of light it becomes more non disruptive receptors in the blood stream without resorting to any side effects. Further, these non disruptive receptors with the help of light it energizes the pancreas cells to secrete the necessary insulin by working on my invented Medical Instrument patented in the year 1998. Thus it regenerates the whole body through the medium of light. Let this beauty speaks itself in life. By Nalin Anthoni Pillai Brain Research Work Foot Note: Most stunning news of another article titled as “Clashing with Trump, a US govt report says climate change will batter economy” appeared yesterday in the ‘The Times of India’ dated 25-11-2018. Now it has become more evident and I alerted United Nations as well as two American Presidents of United States “if they allow the rising temperature to go more than 2 degree Celsius, it will be a catastrophic disaster endangering most of the species around the world.
