Great post. My slap-stick comment aside, I am not a fan of sugar for the most part. I keep it out of my diet as much as possible. And I have NEVER understood feeding it to children! Don’t they behave as if they are on all the crack on their own? Mine sure did. But I digress. I changed my eating habits about a year ago, and cut out as many bad carbs and white sugar as possible. I will still indulge occasionally and have an energy drink. Like, once a month. But for the daily caffeine boost, I drink bulletproof coffee. Scare tactics are the media’s way of, well, putting the fear of whoever into consumers. It’s been that way forever, and I don’t see it changing. Thanks for sharing, this was highly informative. I hope it gets around to those who were fear-mongered.
