Beware of Sugar’s Many Aliases

Beware of Sugar’s Many AliasesIn last week’s post, I explained why detoxification must begin with sugar. I shared a number of mind-blowing statistics related to how much sugar is in products people consume every day, as well as the link between sugar and chronic disease.

I also want to encourage you again to go see Fed Up and take the Fed Up Challenge, which can help you correct your body and brain chemistry by going sugar-free for 10 days.

This year, for the first time in history, more people will die from the effects of obesity than starvation.

There is also a growing body of evidence that points to the excessive intake of refined sugars having a role in the development of chronic illnesses like type II diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
