Sugar and Heart Disease?

heartdiseaseinfographicAnother nutrition bombshell thanks to the manipulation of nutrition research, this time by the sugar industry. This one dates back to the 1960’s. I  wonder how many lives could have been saved if this information had been available all these years. Now it will take years to determine if sugar consumption is related to heart disease based hopefully on independent research and not contamination by the food industry.

All-day Cereal?

Would you pay $7.50 for a bowl of cereal?  Kellogg’s thinks you will. For that $7.50, you also get a pretty good dose of your daily maximum sugar intake.  CLICK HERE.

According to the American Heart Association, the maximum amount of added sugar you should consume is 25-38 grams a day for women and men, respectively which is equal to 6-9 teaspoons a day. Check out how much sugar is in your cereal HERE.

Would Dr. John Harvey Kellogg approve?
