2. a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go down, the medicine, .... I heard that somewhere. :)


But, sugar feeds cancer and makes it grow faster. Medical pros know this. The research is conclusive.

Since it is such a slam dunk, how come big med, big pharma and the food industry ignore it? Could it be because all 3 make so much money off of refined sugar products?

Forget Obamacare. If the nation replaced refined sugars (cane, corn syrup etc..) with healthy natural sweet alternatives, our health care costs would be a fraction of what it is today and obesity would be rare.

Unfortunetly, refined sugars are in almost everything. Even things we typically don't think of as sweet like whole wheat breads.
