Apparently the “experts” still don’t know whether sugar is good or bad for you!! In a recent Medscape article “Junk Science or Junk Food? Experts Debate Sugar Guidelines,” they say that the guidelines on dietary sugar “do not meet the criteria for trustworthy recommendations for reasons that include low-quality evidence and inconsistent advice.” This review, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine said that “at present, there seems to be no reliable evidence indicating that any of the recommended daily caloric thresholds for sugar intake are strongly associated with negative health effects.”
So, there you have it folks! The Experts have spoken! Sugar has NO negative health effects! Just in time for Christmas! Eat all the sugar you want! Of course, if you believe that, then I have some swampland in Florida you might be interested in!
Buried in that same issue of Annals of Internal Medicine, two editorialists say, it’s important to note the funding source for the review, which is ILSI North America, a trade group representing the Coca-Cola Company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, the Hershey Company, Mars, Nestlé, and PepsiCo, among others. It shouldn’t come as a shock that ILSI has a history of opposing quantitative sugar limits.
Like most people, I love sugar but I know that it causes yeast overgrowth, blood sugar imbalance, depletion of magnesium and much more. See the list of 146 Reasons Why Sugar is Ruining Your Health by Nancy Appleton. Sugar could have ruined my medical career in an attack on me after I did an educational show about sugar on national TV in Canada December 1990. Rather than get out the violin and recount the melodrama, you can read about it in a Natural News article called The Medical Monopoly or in my Death by Modern Medicine book.
I’ve been working to solve yeast overgrowth and sugar addiction problems for many years; it has to do with balancing the gut more than killing yeast. It also has to do with chewing and digesting your food so thoroughly that there are no sugars left to feed the yeast. One answer is my ReStructure meal replacement, which is so well digested that it helps you digest other food and sugars throughout the day. But for the immediate sugar overload attack, and to detox party liquor, I recommend our ReAline capsules, ReMag, and ascorbic acid/Vitamin C. People also comment that after taking out RnA Drops, they no longer crave alcohol or sugar. To help out the good bacteria, I still recommend Prescript Assist.
I hope these recommendations help you enjoy the Holiday Season and keep you happy throughout 2017! Happy Holidays!
