This information is probably not new to the many of us that have been Plant-strong for a while, but for the great number of people that are waking up to this movement, this is a wonderfully educational piece.
I know this stuff.
But it's still really, really, really hard a lot of the time to say no to the sugar. And I know I'm not alone. So I totally agree with Dr. Lustig--sugar should be a controlled substance like cigarettes and alcohol. Why not label foods with sugar with a special warning to let people know of its effects.
I call sugar "Poison."
I needed to take my four year old son to the bathroom yesterday during the long trip home. When carrying him through a convenience store to get to the bathroom, I was pointing to the food and whispering in his ear, "Poison, that is poison."
I want him to know.
