The ‘Mad Pandemic’… A Disease More Common Than Heart Disease and Cancer

A global expert has warned of a widespread disease affecting a vast number of people, perhaps more common than highly reputed illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.

American physician Dr. Eric Berg discussed the risks of autoimmune diseases, termed as “epidemic madness,” explaining that there are over 100 known types of autoimmune diseases.

The “Daily Express” quoted Berg stating that these conditions occur when “the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells in the body, leading to their damage,” and common autoimmune diseases include:

Berg stated that autoimmune diseases could be a “mad epidemic” affecting one in every 12 men and one in every 9 women, making them more common than heart diseases.

The doctor, whose total views on YouTube amount to approximately 2,249,291,442 so far, explained that “the sole common denominator among all autoimmune diseases is intestinal permeability or leaky gut.”

Leaky gut syndrome is defined as an “intestinal condition where weak intestinal walls allow bacteria and toxins to enter the bloodstream,” it is also considered a theoretical condition where scientists are not entirely sure if it is a disease or a symptom.

However, it is a known feature of many inflammatory and autoimmune diseases affecting the digestive system, including inflammatory bowel disease and digestive disorders.

Causes of Autoimmune Diseases Regarding the causes of autoimmune diseases, Berg believed they were multiple and included:

Berg advised adopting a high-quality diet to reduce the risk of autoimmune diseases, stating, “I strongly recommend following the ketogenic (keto) diet which includes high-quality animal proteins as well as a good amount of fats.”

He also recommended consuming plenty of cooked vegetables and a “moderate” amount of fermented vegetables, such as sauerkraut, to maintain gut microbiota health.

Berg added: “No changes to your health or diet should be made without first consulting a doctor, undergoing a medical examination, and obtaining a diagnosis and recommendation.”
