"According to Dr. Robert Lustig, one of the leading experts on childhood obesity, sugar is a poison, responsible for obesity along with chronic and lethal diseases." This is a quote from Dr. Mercola's website. This is a terrific article about sugar and its dangers. I urge you to read this!
Yesterday, we ate out (something we don't do very often). The kids' menu came with a soda included (no extra charge). It's tempting to allow your kids to order one when it's included in the price. But they were good and ordered water. But because the soda was included, there was no reduction in the price of the kids' meals for ordering water. I wonder if there was some sort of reduction in price for ordering water vs. soda if parents would encourage their kids to make that choice.
This article gives some staggering statistics on sugar consumption in the USA.
NEOTAME. I'd never heard of this sweetener until today. This article really caught my attention. Wish the FDA had stricter rules in terms of what they have to include on food labels. People should have the right to know what they are eating. Don't you think?!?!?
