The secrets of sugar

CBC's The Fifth Estate had a very good show on last night by the title of the secrets of sugar. It focused on refined sugars. Very well done and well worth watching!

I watched it last night as well and thought it was very well done. It would have been nice if they had explained to people how ALL carbs turn to sugar but with only an hour that would have been hard to get into. Hopefully a lot of people watched it and start to see the damage of so much sugar in the diet.

I tried playing it a few times over the weekend, but it had a message up that it was not available.

I'll try again later.

The article was good; thank you for the notice, Cathy!

I watched it on youtube last night. Thank you for posting, Cathy!

Another great show about how really toxic sugar is. It is scary to think about what can happen to your liver.

For fun one day I looked in depth into the nutritional content of ketchup. My husband's favourite brand. It said it was made with real tomatos. I couldn't find any evidence of that. All I could find was that the calories are mostly coming from HFCS and MSG. I am not sure how the real tomatos factored into it. But it didn't seem like real food to me based on my amateur research.
