(Depressing) Thoughts for the Day


A few notes from the interesting article "
Is Sugar Toxic?" from The New York Times Magazine...
- That the sweet stuff makes us fat is something we take for granted. That is might also be making us sick is harder to accept.

- In Robert Lustig's view, sugar should be thought of, like cigarettes and alcohol, as something that's killing us.

- By the early 2000s, we had increased our added sugar consumption to more than 90 pounds per person per year.

- "I have eliminated refined sugar from my diet," the president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering says. "Ultimately it's something I can do to decrease my risk of cancer."
