60 Minutes will be running a story tonight on the link between sugar, and the high rates of heart disease & cancer in the Western world. It's about frigging time. :clap:

For decades, the Vegans & the PETAphiles have been pushing their anti-meat & saturated 'fat' agenda down our throats, and now we have the evidence that fat isn't the real culprit. It's sugar. :squid:

I urge everyone to take a gander at this story. It will be illuminating. :th:

That is the truth for sure RR. Everything in moderation, but sugar is the worst by far. Meat protein is essential, my acupuncturist told me that I was lacking in it when I stopped eating it for a while. I have that bookmarked on my set also for tonight.

Worse than crack. Man made, cheap, and highly addicting.

But hey lets go give the potheads some crap while eating a jelly donut, eyeing another prozac, and working on a hangover. :th:

A doctor who debunks flawed studies was talking about sweeteners, and she said if refined sugar was invented today is would end up regulated as a drug for all the havoc it does to your body.


On the flip side, she said that saccharin (Sweet-N=Low) is one of the safest compounds known to man. Your body cannot process it so is passes right through you. The cancer scare was because pigs have an enzyme that humans don't that process it and turns it into a carcinogen.

why are the right wingers making up the term white sugar. I have never heard that in my life before. It was always sugar, but now they want to make it about color.

Is brown sugar racist because it is unrefined. :confused:

Even though I'm white, I'm going to go bowling after work.

Just to prove that I'm not racist

It has nothin to do with vegetarians and vegans, it has to do with avoiding processed foods and the majority of the grocery store that has high fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners in it.

Vegans eat ********s of nuts, avacados, oils etc that are high in fat. It's not about fat you are right. It's about eating healthy in general and we could all do with eating less processed food in general.

Go to the farmers market, eat locally, everything in moderation

I don't think a little sugar added here or there is the problem. (The same with salt.) I think the issue is with sugar added to damn near every food product made. Take a gander at food nutritional information labels sometime, and be prepared to be shocked. Bread, added sugar. Spaghetti sauce, added salt & sugar. Cookies, pies, ice cream and cakes, obviously have added sugar, but you might be amazed as to how much. Canned corn, added salt &sugar. 'Regular' soda is all carb sugar. That, and using refined, non fiberous bleached wheat, with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, and we're damn near doomed. :(

Simple changes to our mass produced food is all that is necessary to get back on a healthier track. Remember, one can always add additional salt & sugar to purchased food products, to cater to ones own taste, but they can't be taken out by the consumer. I'd love that option.

It's 90 degrees here today, and I'm having an ice cream cone. Will I soon have to stand in the smoker's gulag to eat it?
