This is a statement from Cancer Truth:
Sugar is *NOT* your friend. It may feel like your friend when it comforts you (due to the beta-endorphin rush in your brain), but sugar is actually your enemy. Truth be told, regular consumption of sugary foods is one of the worst things that you can do to your health.
Here you can read the whole » Sugar is the white death» article on cancer truth.
One of my favorite scientists Dr. Robert H. Lustig is participating in these educational videos from the University of California
Dr. Lustig has also been on 60 minutes talking about his research. It is inspirational to hear him talk against the food industry. He is stepping on many toes. My prediction is that there will be a massive kickback from those who have no sense of social responsibility and poison their fellow-men guilt free.
The first video I saw by Dr. Lustig is one hour and twenty-nine minutes. It is mind-blowing. He is turning everything we have believed about calorie intake before upside down.
So why do I think this is a big deal? Sugar is a drug. Why do I say that? I have been a drug addict and my drug of choice was sugar.The «problem» is that I did not gain weight. That sounds delightful doesn´t it? You know what? My body doesn´t think so. Thanks to an excellent dentist the consequences can not be seen. The damage to my digestive system is something I have to pay attention to every day. Sugar overconsumption is not friendly to the body, not even if you don´t gain weight..
But all in all I am thankful for the lesson. I have only one life. I have to try to live it in harmony with my body and my surroundings.
I put all three videos under «videos» if you want to safe them for later.
