Liver Responsible for Molecular Culprits of Type 2 Diabetes

Liver Responsible for Molecular Culprits of Type 2 Diabetes

Researchers in Melbourne, Australia have found that oxygenating chemicals responsible for Type 2 diabetes are produced by the liver.  "We have shown for the very first time that these free radicals inactivate protein tyrosine phosphatases in the liver to activate rogue pathways that promote fatty liver disease and exacerbate the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes."  The article says the radicals are produced as a response to obesity, but I wonder if they may be a cause instead.  The indications are that they are at least a contributor.

Complications resulting from Type 2 Diabetes have declined over the last 20 years.

Goat rogan josh with rice
Goat rogan josh: "Goat meat bone-in with whole spic[e]s, tomatoes, onions, ginger and garlic." I think I will avoid goat from now on. Each time it gets served with unexpected bones (the print menu didn't mention them), and more of it gets in my teeth and gums than in my stomach.
