Sugar: The Mainstream Toxin

Last night, 60 Minutes had a nice little segment about the toxicity of sugar. It feeds cancer and is a major player in heart disease. They got it mostly right, but left out the fact that most refined carbohydrates (like bread and pasta) act the same as pure sucrose in our bodies. Regardless, I'm so happy to see the message starting to get out into the mainstream.

I'm not quite savvy enough to know how to embed the video, but you can watch the segment here.

Having good information is half the battle on the journey toward health. For more information, I suggest Gary Taubes book, Why We Get Fat, or watching Fat Head on Netflix.

To your good health,
Allison
