Sugar consumption is on the increase, if I look back over my life I cringe at my own sugar intake. Is this what I want for my kids. People ask Nic and me, why are you doing this? Our main reason is to catalogue global health information, for our family and anyone else who is interested.
This article will show the sugar contents in baby foods. Some of you will find quite shocking, I know I did. This is the follow on from ‘The History of Sugar’, and will give a brief explaination of the effects of sugar on the body and the effects of sugar on the brain.
High Sugar Diets
I have come to the conclusion, that governments and industry will never stop selling sugar, regardless of the impact it has on our health. They will tax us more for eating it, just like cigarettes, but never stop the sale. It’s just too profitable in many different ways, not just for the sugar industry. On the face of it looks like the government is doing something about it. But, is a tax on fizzy drinks, really going to solve the obesity epidemic?
If they banned everything that causes illness or damage to us and the environment, a few things would happen. We’d all feel better and probably stop becoming as ill, and there would be nothing or very little on the shelves to buy.
Quite a scary thought when you think about isn’t it. The only way they would stop selling poison would be if we stopped buying it.
