Sugar Blues?

Sugar or fat? It appears that we have not had all the  research information to decide whether sugar or fat is associated with heart disease. Shame on the industry and the academics who participated back in the 1970’s and 80’s.

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.

Still Drinking Orange Juice?

 

Just checked and found that 8 oz. of orange juice has 22 grams of sugarlump-sugar-548647_640. That is equal to about  5.5 tsp. Add that to a serving of sugary cereal in the morning and you have probably already exceeded the limit of 9 tsp. a day according to the American Heart Association.

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?
