Nigerian Discovers Cure For Diabetes

Mar 18, 2009 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: thenewsng.com

For long, Dr.Louis Obyo Obyo Nelson was unknown to the Nigerian public. That has since changed. Last month Nelson, a research scientist, bobbed out of obscurity when he was credited with finding the cure for diabetes, considered the sixth largest killer disease in Nigeria and that which has about 123 million sufferers worldwide. Diabetes is the failure of the pancreas to break down sugar, leading to a series of complications.

Victims of the disease rely on injection of insulin and diet management as treatment. Nelson’s contribution bucks the trend. It is a herb-based drug that can be taken orally as capsule, tablet or syrup. Clinical trials have confirmed that the drug is a cure for diabetes.

Nelson has signed an exclusive worldwide licence agreement for the commercialisation, sales and marketing of the drug, currently named AD-1. The drug offers diabetics a great chance of living well, free of the hassle that comes with stringent health management routine. Nelson, quite justifiably, is being lauded as a national hero; a ray of hope in a season of darkness

Sorry to say, I agree. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

I just read the context of Nelson's statement....This is isn't a CURE...It's an alleged treatment... which means nothing.
He plans on hooking up with some rich americans to sell this scam in the usa... He will get rich,,but the sufferers of this disease will be the big losers.
It's all about the money baby!!!!
Thanks for being a cynic on this forum, silly.

You are right, but look at like this, these cures would put alot people out jobs!! Catch my drift, I also believe they can make a car motor, that can run for ever too! but same scenario!

Nelson discovered nothing. His "cure" is simply an herbal treatment for diabetes Nigerian witch doctors have used for ages. His only great accomplishment was getting it patented, but even that was fake because the "cure" is a commonly found African bitter root.

In order to "patent" this freely growing root, Nelson concocted fake explanation of research, efficacy, etc. which was enough to get the patent.

That was five years ago. Since then neither the FDA, drug companies, medical and scientific journals have expressed any interest in the "cure" at all.

Quackery.

And that's what it is, folks -- pure quackery. A Nigerian internet scam done with a little more finesse ... just a little more.

I am skeptical about this because diabetes can be caused by several different factors/abnormalities in the human body and it just doesn't seem logical that there would be only one cure.

how many people here actually read the article?

It was hack journalism at best. The Dr. himself says in the interview that he has not found a cure. He claims he has found a treatment.

And I quote Dr.Louis Obyo Obyo Nelson from the article:

"At this point of our research, we can only claim research, and I have never claimed cure, I claim treatment. My patent is for the medicament for the treatment of diabetes. You are the one that turned it to cure."

If he really had found a cure as the title of the article claims, it would have been front page news all over the world.

This story of a cure for diabetes is totally shit.
there is no cure. drinking some boiled leaves won't regenerate a damaged body organ.
Sheeeeeit
Depends on the type of diabetes. Type II is relatively easily reversible to other types. The key is to not be overweight/obese. More fat= harder pancreas has to work= the more insulin that has to be produced=increased chance of type II diabetes. But, lose fat and the process reverses.

Exactly! If these methods were used in the U.S. the economy would really be down. Remember at the end of Fire Below with Steven Seagull when the script said the U.S. has had a motor that runs with a 50mpg? If they produced that motor all hell would break out. Gas prices would soar astronomically!

Yeah, it's true, and the reason why we AA's have higher incidents of diabetes is because of our diets with all that fattening Soul Food and other unhealthy foods we eat.He'll be rich alright, but white people don't want to make cures for othe serious diseases since they'd rather continue to make millions off of people's suffering.
"At this point of our research, we can only claim research, and I have never claimed cure, I claim treatment."
So Mack, hes just like all the others trying to make a quick buck off of sick people, while not offering a "Cure" in his own words.
