I am a fan of food. I love to cook, eat and do dishes. Well, maybe not the dishes but they are worth it after a meal has been made. It has come to my attention that the food we eat isn’t so healthy. I mean I know this, but I didn’t really know this. Or maybe I dont want to know this.
I was shocked when I saw an article about nutrition. The label the nutritionist she had as the example was for a can of juice.
I realiseded that there were 34 grams of sugar and there were 34 grams of carbs.
So I started to investigate this label a little more.
16 oz. 2- 8 oz per serving.
34g sugar x 2 = 68 grams of sugar
Hmm I started to wonder how many grams of sugar are in a teaspoon?
This juice.. made of water, hibiscus, (rosas de Jamaica ) and sugar.
1) Sugar is toxic.
Yeap. It is better to not to sugar than to eat sugar. It has no value
2) Sugar is addicting.
I can tell you first hand I am addicted to sugar. It seems that sugar releace a n opiate tyoe substance.. I am sure it is easier to quit drugs than sugar. I love sugar. In my coffee, Snickers you put some milk chocolate infront of me and I melt. But today I ready something that made me realise, HOLY COW!!! Sugar is REALLY bad for me!
3) We eat more than 100 lbs of sugar a year!

Those are some pretty strong words, but read on and be aware of what you are eating..
If you’re still eating genetically modified (GM) soybeans and you plan on having kids, a Brazilian study may make you think again about what you put in your mouth.
Female rats fed GM soy for 15 months showed significant changes in their uterus and reproductive cycle, compared to rats fed organic soy or those raised without soy.
