Sugar = EVIL?

I'm sure you've been hearing or reading a lot about the dangers of Sugars. Are you confused about what you should or shouldn't be eating? Manufacturers and Marketers are adding to this confusion, with names we don't recognize, or believe are good for us. I am pretty passionate about Sugar, and I am completely convinced it's the reason I've packed on the pounds, as have others in our country. It's addictive and deadly. The old addage of 'everything in moderation' holds true, but really look at the labels of what you are eating, and you will see with all the different names sugar goes by, we are all getting too much of this food! The list of sugars just seems to go on and on.

I found this article today on the dangers of sugar and just really wanted to share this with all of you. It's a long one, but worth the read. Check it out and tell me what you think.


  1. Sister, I have been saying this for a LONG time! I equate sugar to a drug. I have not eliminated it completely, but I definitely check every label. Any sugar I put in is natural sugar!

    Great post!

  2. Thanks Terri,
    But I am still learning about the differences in NAMES for sugar, and this article really talked about the fructose element. I think you really can teach an old dog a new trick... well, at least, this old dog!
