Sugar now is considered to be toxic by some in the medical community...will you now change your eating habits?
Last night, 60 minutes presented a segment which featured this Dr. Robert Lustig a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, who believes the high amount of sugar in the American diet, much of it in processed foods, is killing us.
I have heard similar studies in how the body today is overwhelmed by the amount of sugars in the many forms and manifests in a lot of preventable diseases.
Even before this story aired, I have cut out alcohol and am on a low to no carb diet and have never felt better. This story last night has prompted me to continue to look into this matter and brings to mind an project my 12 yr. old recently had to do for his health class. His assignment was to read all the ingredient labels on the food he ate and look for the “sugar” content. Any time sugar, corn syrup or ”....-tose” was one of the top 3 ingredients, it can be considered a desert! We had a lot of deserts in our house.
Fascinating story and curious if this would cause any other jellies to make changes in their food habits.
