The Function & Malfunction of the Pancreas (video)
Dr. Berg talks about the pancreas. Normally it produces hormones (insulin and glucagon) to regulate blood sugars. However, the pancreas also produced enzymes to help in every aspect of digestion. Bicarbondates are also produced to help neutralize the acids coming down from the stomach. If there is a gallstone obstructing the flow of enzymes, those protein enzymes then can eat up itself and cause pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). This leads to endocrine pancreatic insufficiency. There are other causes too: cystic fibrosis, viruses (autoimmune) and alcohol. However, high fructose corn syrup can also act like alcohol in causes pancreatic insufficiency. In fact, it can cause a cytotoxic effect on the cells that make insulin (beta cells).
