I congratulate Tiffany O'Callaghan for keeping the warning about the hazards of sugar alive and in our faces New Scientist: One jelly bean won't hurt.
Sucrose is the perfect slow poison — a year poison. Not even Hercule Poirot could have connected the dots, the effect being so delayed.
But sucrose is toxic; make no mistake. Beforewhen the UK abolished a tax on sugar and was suddenly flooded with it, myocardial infarction was extremely rare in the literature.
Bywe see the first myocardial infarction ever recorded. There was no name for type 2 diabetes before because it was so rare as to be considered a medical curiosity.
By the early 20th century, there were over 30 million cases in sugar-rich countries.

To make matters worse, America sells military hardware to the Saudis who use it to attack countries like Yemen. If you claim to be a Christian then you need to ask yourself what Jesus would think about this?
If you are a deist then you need to ask yourself if this makes sense at all. Our culture is awash in lies, dominated by streams of never ending electronic hallucinations that merge fact and fiction until they are indistinguishable.- Baruch de Spinoza, or as later known by Benedictus de Spinoza, was a 17th century philosopher that came under much hostility because of his renunciation of the accepted religious perceptions of god.
