'60 Minutes' Reports on the Dangers of Sugar
#1
"By Dr. Mercola

    If you haven't viewed the video at the top, please schedule 20 minutes and do so as you will thoroughly enjoy this 60 Minutes vindication of sugar's dangers.

    In a ground-breaking news story, 60 Minutes reports that new research coming out of some of America's most respected institutions is finding that sugar is a toxin that can lead to major chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, and cancer.

    This is jolting to people who don't realize that even if they don't add it to their foods, hidden sugar, including high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), is in virtually all processed foods, from yogurts and sauces to breads and sodas.

    Although some experts argue that "sugar is sugar," test subjects in strict clinical trials who were monitored 24 hours a day, who consumed HFCS, developed higher risk factors for cardiovascular disease within two weeks.

    Other studies indicate that if you limit your sugar, no matter what form you get it in, you decrease your chances of developing cancer—including breast and colon cancers.

    What's even more startling is that a growing number of studies are also showing that the more sugar you eat, the less satisfied you are.

Pure sugar is different from High Fructose Corn Syrup. One is a natural work of God's creation, the other is processed in a factory.

FYI Similac organic contains sugar now vs only lactose.... Even Europe banned sugar for infant formulas. There is no substitute for breastmilk but I wish America had better options for those who have to give formula. (I have researched each ingredient in them all. Good luck trying to find one in America without the new novel of synthetic DHA/ARA sourced from hexane treated algae/fungus or the organic ones without brown rice syrup that has high levels of arsenic.....or perchlorate aka rocket fuel in cow milk based formulas because it's in our water supply or try to find one without any soy period- "The Weston A. Price website estimates that a baby on soy formula will receive the estrogen equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day.")

The best thing would be a breastmilk bank....... or the days when you had a wet nurse.

It is possible through some organizations to get breasmilk from a mother who produces more than she needs or the mother in the sad situation of having a child who died but is willing to keep producing milk to help someone else's child.

God created the sucrose molecule.  But men isolate it in huge quantities and unnaturally stuff it into processed foods.

The part which gets me is, when we are through limiting our intake from every thing they tell us and limit our chances of all the nasty disease they list what will we die of, sleep.  They create the monster by putting corn syrup in everything including enemas, then say it's sugar. Bah ! it's them that are bad.

Remember salt ? It raises the blood pressure so now it's verbotten, right ? Well there are no scientific studies linking the temporary rise in blood pressure to anything, in fact it falls back in a short while with no effect. But, and Italian Doctor has studied salt and has found limiting your salt intake produces renin in the kidneys and causes heart attacks and strokes. The logical extension is the prohibition against salt has been killing those heart and diabetes patients for years.
