How The Sugar Industry Shifted Blame To Fat – Anahad O’Connor: New York Times
I’ve done my best to cut out much of the added sugar in my diet. It hasn’t been easy, however, I find that the longer I go the easier it gets. That was until yesterday.
I decided to bake some cookies for my little guys who, just like many other kindergartners, have had a pretty rude awakening this week after a wonderfully unscheduled summer break. Feeling that I should at least try a cookie myself I jumped off the bandwagon and had one.
I couldn’t just stop at one; it seemed to set off a cascade of need for more. Just like a drug, I found it incredibly hard to stop. Amazing the effect that a little (or a lot) of sugar can have.
Our best article of the week, by Anahad O’Connor from the New York Times, highlights new information pertaining to how the sugar industry has been deceptive about the health of sugar in our diets.
While Naturopathic Medicine has long been aware of sugar’s harmful and addictive qualities, our clients are just getting up to date on this chemical’s negative influence and editorials such as this help to solidify our stance regarding excess sugar.
Emphasizing the health consequences of too much sugar in our diets is essential, and while stopping at just one cookie may be hard, it’s a challenge worth taking for your health.
