Really, sugars are sugars. Some sugar is good. Less is better.

We need a break from school food issues.

I love this graphic, designed by Noelle Campbell.  It’s from an article by Rebecca Adams in the Huffington Post (I’m quoted).

    Sugar is sugar, alright, but it’s erroneous to isolate it from other nutrients and active agents it might accompany, like in the case of fruit and raw honey (i.e. raw manuka honey contains agents with strong antibacterial properties).

    While much has been written on this topic, your article expresses both
    the positive and negative aspects of this important topic, without
    taking an boring stance on either side of the issue.
    Marion Nestle, I must Thank you for your thorough research and clear
    writing.

  • SAO

    Given the comment by Ekaterine Quist, I’m curious, how significant are the minerals and other good stuff in molasses and honey? Are they, as I suspect trivial relative to calories?

    Do you need your ex husband or lover urgently? ?

    My name is Nora woodland from the United States of America and am here to share a testimony i would please want you to read careful. I was married for seventeen years until misfortune came in. My husband and i were living happily with our children and enjoyed the company of each other. Our eldest daughter eloped with her boyfriend and this cost my husband his job because he could no longer concentrate on his job and this almost tore our home apart. My husband lost his job and we were living on the little income i was making from my cabbage. This really tormented our home cos my husband loves her more than our other kids. I tried all i could do to make my husband happy even when i wasn’t happy. This happened for sometime and he had cardiac arrest. We spent virtually all the money we had and still the condition did not improve. I was left with no choice than to sell the stuffs in our house, I was able to realise some money which was spent on his medical bills. I did this for a while until we had no money on us again. We came home and was hoping he could get better. He continued like that for some months and we decided to seek for solution else where. I went online where i met many self acclaimed doctors and spell casters but none could help. I then came across this particular caster whose testimonies i have read. His name is Dr.Brave he promised to help and he did in a way i find very surprising to explain. He told me that he would cast some spells to make my daughter come back and to get my husband his job back. It was like an impossible task. But with the help and intervention of this prophet of GOD, my daughter came back home and saw her dad was sick and she cried and asked for forgiveness. My husband after a week became whole again and another spell was cast to get him his job back. Like a dream it happened. My daughter is back home and my loving husband is well again and now has his job back. So good people of the world i want you to help me in saying a big thank you to Dr.Brave for his intervention. This is one Dr i will seriously recommend for anyone with issues of such nature or any other problem. Simply contact him on his email via bravespellcaster@gmail.com

    Relative to calories, all carbohydrates (including all sugars) are the same, 4 calories / gram. All proteins are 4 calories / gram as well. Not everyone has a weight problem. The blackstrap molasses that I use while running marathons does have some nutritional benefits.

    Marion Nestle said,

    the safety of GMOs is a surrogate for what people really worry about but aren’t allowed to discuss: corporate control of the food supply.

    The composition of sugar is a surrogate for what people really worry about but aren’t allowed to discuss: corporate control of the food supply.

    It works for everything!

    But I agree. “Sugars are sugars.”

    Maybe you’ll eventually agree that DNA is DNA and come around to as to why making laws distinguishing DNA from DNA serves no purpose, especially as a surrogate for other issues.

    This is very bizarre, but I wrote a helpful reply to this comment several weeks ago and today discovered it was “marked as spam”! I hope it was done accidentally, not maliciously. I’m re-pasting my original comment here because it’s assuredly not spam.
    ——————
    You can look on the USDA database yourself for proof. Molasses is very dense in minerals. The caloric density of calcium in molasses is slightly higher than milk. “raw sugar” is a marketing gimmick for almost-white sugar, but totally unrefined cane sugar, coconut palm sugar, etc has a truly valuable amount of minerals. Of course it’s possible to overdose on any dense sugar source, but the infographic here is dishonest and misleading.

    fully ready to support me in any thing i want,few months later i got

    I never use to believe in spell casting until i met
    Great Baba a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person
    again. My name is Sarah Kelly and i reside in USA. After 3 years of
    Broken marriage, my husband left me with three kids. I felt like my life
    was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down
    for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Great Baba
    which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the
    internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great
    spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to
    bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure
    cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it
    was about a woman called Amanda, she testified about how his spell made
    her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of
    her testimony she dropped Great Baba’s email address. After reading all
    these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my
    problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband
    will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work.
    When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called
    me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Great Baba said. This is
    not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my
    husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to
    know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even

    Thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family?

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster .
