Re: Gratuitous comment on foodstuffs
so true - it is insidious and people think it's ok. an acupuncturist
doctor once told me that sugar in its raw state is fine - it is a
whole food - but refined sugar is processed by the body as a drug.
something about it being in an isolated crystalline form.
same with salt - there is a huge difference between refined table
salt and raw ionic salt. when they process the salt they remove
something like 92-96 trace minerals which then are used in
isn't that silly - we eat this refined salt and it causes
hypertension etc. then we take vitamin supplements to replace the
minerals they took out!
i agree with you that people are addicted to sugar. what really
amazes me is when they feed it to their children. i've seen people
feeding babies soda in baby bottles.
i've had people tell me that i was 'depriving' my son by giving him
toys instead of candy at easter & halloween. i would ask them, well,
am i depriving him by not giving him cigarettes?
i had a really hard time getting over sugar addiction. it was worse
than other drug addictions, in my experience.
