Sweetener Education –
Sugar-The Bitter Truth
Every month I treat myself to “O” Magazine and read it from cover to cover. I find the articles informative, the art beautiful, and the magazine entertaining. This subject for this month’s “O” Magazine is Living Longer, Getting Stronger. I was totally jazzed to find an article that we could read together to begin our discussion on sweeteners, The Sweet Lowdown, by Stephanie Schomer. In this piece, Ms. Schomer interviews Dr. Robert Lustig, on of the world’s leading experts on the relationship among sugar, processed food, and obesity. Ms. Schomer mentions Dr. Lustig’s YouTube video, “Sugar-The Bitter Truth.” I spent an hour watching this video, and I highly recommend you watching as well. Dr. Lustig gives us a great education, and I certainly will consider his information when I choose sweeteners, especially in beverages, in the future.
I’ve included the YouTube for your convenience:
