Sugar – the devil’s food

Sugar wreaks havoc with many of the body’s physiologic systems and plays a central role in the current heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity epidemics. The culprit: plain old sugar, and its thinly disguised evil cousin, high fructose corn syrup.  Yes, they will kill you. Maybe not overnight, but over time, sugar and corn syrup-derived sweeteners will erode your health, leading to many fatal diseases.

Know your fats

Eating the right fats – healthy fats – will build and feed your beautiful body’s cells (and help you lose weight). Eating the wrong fats causes inflammation which is associated with nearly all lifestyle diseases:  heart disease, cancer, obesity, autoimmune disease, dementia, and of course Type II diabetes.

ISIS and donuts

Do you fear terrorism? Since 2001, on average, 1 person dies from terrorism in the U.S. per year. Obesity kills over 300,000 each year. Obesity-related conditions are some of the leading causes of preventable, premature death – heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.
