Sugar is Toxic

I always appreciate when the mainstream media finally catches up to a story that embraces what I've been saying for a lot of years.  It confirms for me that when I'm "out there" about something that I'm not crazy or hallucinating on mushrooms or something.

Last night on 60 Minutes, Dr. Sanjay Gupta concisely brought together the information everyone should have about sugar.  It's not just about weight any more!  You can watch the three minute segment by clicking here.

Here's a short little added tirade about high fructose corn syrup... In ADDITION to the sugar connection talked about by Dr. Gupta, HFCS is also made from corn.  Over 90% of the yellow corn in the United States is genetically modified.  So, all this high fructose corn syrup getting put into every processed food is also coming with a foreign genetic structure.  The manufacturers' of high fructose corn syrup have a number of advertising campaigns on TV about how it is as healthy as sugar.  When sugar is already toxic, I don't see that they're helping themselves much by comparing their product to another toxin.  Even the name changes they are proposing does not change the poison it is.
