If Veganism can reverse Diabetes, why isn't the mainstream medical field creating enough awareness about it?

Do we see the good for everyone in profits only?

      Mar 8 2011: There is a difference between being a vegan and modifying your diet to combat a disease. No one is claiming that this is some magic cure, only that it can help certain diabetics control their diabetes. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes/AN00845 As for evidence to support this, you can google scholar Neal D Barnard and look at it yourself. While there is still work to be done, it seems as though switching to a vegan or nearly vegan diet does help type 2 diabetics. As for this being a natural cure, eating brussel sprouts is no more natural than eating beef. We do have both incisors and molars.
