    Sugar

    http://www.durgan.org/URL/?BRGOG Sugar should be controlled like alcohol: report
    Sugar is so toxic it should be controlled like alcohol, according to new report that goes so far as to suggest setting an age limit of 17 years to buy soda pop.

    It points to sugar as a culprit behind many of the world’s major killers — heart disease, cancer and diabetes — that are now a greater health burden than infectious disease.

    A little sugar “is not a problem, but a lot kills — slowly,” says the report to be published Thursday in Nature, a top research journal.


    Over the eons sugar was available to our ancestors as fruit for only a few months a year at harvest time, or as honey “which was guarded by bees,” says the report by Dr. Robert Lustig, a noted childhood obesity expert at the University of California, and two U.S. colleagues specializing in health policy...

    Salt I never use additionally, and even take a bit of iodine on my tongue periodically as a precaution, since I was familiar with much goitre in the West as a child.

    Here is something that I picked up from an English forum.
    Sugar is like smoking, a useless and unhealthy addiction. I haven't eaten refined sugar (except very occasional ice cream and pickles) for over 40 years. No cakes, no biscuits, no sweets, chocolates or processed foods, as far as I could help it.
    Do I miss any of them - no, in fact anything containing sugar now tastes positively disgusting. For those who still take sugar in their tea or coffee, give it up for 3 weeks and then try it with sugar again, I am convinced you will positively hate it.
