Stop Being Sweet News

I’ve been working on something new and exciting for SBS! Meanwhile, lots of things are happening in the world of sugar…

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is trying to ban super sized sugary drinks in The Big Apple and people are freaking out. Folks claim Bloomberg is a giant Big Brother Nanny who has overstepped his bounds. Anti-sugar doctor Dr. Robert Lustig (lovingly) calls Bloomberg New York City’s Jewish mother.

Remember, sugar isn’t the enemy just like guns aren’t the enemy!

The FDA rejected the Corn Refiners’ attempt to rebrand High Fructose Corn Syrup as “Corn Sugar.” That was a win for us and a positive decision from the overloaded and underfunded FDA.

With all this action around sugar and soda, I can’t help but wonder if the plastic companies are smiling or scared. It’s just a matter of time before we notice the mounting evidence that Bisphenal A is sugar’s partner in making us fat and diabetic. The anti-nanny state people are correct, sugar is just part of the problem.
