Capping off a week of mind-bending health news, a “60 Minutes” report airing on April 1 sets its sights on the toxicity of sugar. On the heels of stories on how chocolate keeps us slim and mummy poop may solve the obesity damage done by chlorinated water and antibiotics, “60 Minutes” is reporting that sugar is no better than high-fructose corn syrup, contributing to heart disease, diabetes and even helping cancer tumors grow due to increased insulin production. Dr. Robert Lustig calls it a “public health crisis” and suggests that sugar should be regulated and include warning labels similar to those used for tobacco and alcohol. April fools? I don’t think so. This was just this past weekend on 60 Minutes. Is sugar toxic? 60 minutes 1 April 2012. Find a healthier choice by finding STEVIA.
