Do you remember the big stink in the U.S. a few years back surrounding McDonald’s and their food, most notably French fries? It was the big trans-fat scare! That’s right, we were being poisoned by the evil clown with deadly fat and something had to be done!
Yeah, because we’re not adults or anything…
So the government stepped in and the burger giant was forced to change their frying oil. On the surface of it, it’s nice of good old Uncle Sam to take care of us, right? To watch out for us, the ignorant masses, and make sure that the super-sized fries we shove into our feed holes are not entirely unhealthy!
Okay… but do you know that despite the choice you make to visit Mickey Dee’s, there is in fact something found in virtually every can, box or bag of food in the grocery aisle that’s incredibly addictive, almost immediately turns to fat when you eat it, and is one of the leading causes of most of the ailments we suffer today?
So what is this killer, which is not only ignored by the government but actually supported by it?
That’s right, processed sugar in its many forms is one of the most used ingredients in all processed and packaged foods. That includes regular white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, maltodextrin and a host of other ingredients.
Want proof? Try this experiment the next time you go shopping. Walk down the aisles and examine the stuff you normally buy, including the stuff you wouldn’t even think they’d put sugar in – soup, salad dressing, instant potatoes, juice, frozen foods and even baby foods…
Now, if you read the list of ingredients you’ll find some of the sugars I mentioned above. Keep in mind that this list of ingredients is organized from the highest concentration to the lowest. So if some kind of sugar is listed in the first three ingredients – and it’s often #1 or #2 – then you’re eating a whole lot of it.
Sugar is a killer and, while okay in small quantities, is extremely unhealthy, fattening and addictive. That’s right – thousands of independent clinical studies have shown that sugar is more addictive than cocaine and even heroin…
…and it’s in virtually everything we eat!
