Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, You Know It Will Kill You

America spends two and a half times more on healthcare per capita than any other developed nation, quickly approaching $3 trillion EVERY year. With this kind of expenditure, you would expect our citizens to be the healthiest in the world, but this is not the case.

In fact, the US ranks dead last in quality of care—Americans are sicker and live shorter lives than people in most other industrialized nations. So where’s the money going?

The Credit Suisse Research Institute’s 2013 study1 “Sugar: Consumption at a Crossroads” found that 30 to 40 percent of US healthcare expenditures are for diseases directly related to the overconsumption of sugar!

We spend more than a trillion dollars each year fighting the damaging health effects of sugar. This, combined with the massive waste, fraud, and inefficiency of our healthcare system, make it completely unsustainable over time.

  1. Never mind that we all have to relocate at one time or another due to our bodies deteriorating; meet you on the other side kind of thing, I’m sure too much sugar is not good for you. But what happened to the idea of everything in moderation? This demonization of sugar seems to coincide with the negative affects of aspartame coming to the limelight more and more. Does Mr. Rumsfeld really have to protect his business interests that badly?

    Remember, when butter was bad and margarine was good? Puleeeze! Oh, coffee is a no-no, tea too – except for the green tea laced with radio nuclides from Japan. GMO papayas given out for free on Hawaii to promote business.

    I just don’t buy into this ‘sugar is bad’ business too much. Besides, one size fits all doesn’t work, as much as the PTB wants us to conform to their ideas and be treated all as one, I ain’t eat’n no friggin leftovers of aluminum smelting.

    • Yes, aspartame has been renamed and now is “natural”. I see your point.

      But the gist of the video (to me) IS moderation. Frankly, there is too much sugar in products, especially this shit food they mass produce. It is an easy way to gain “taste”.

      But why? Why put sugar in tomato paste, when my homemade is excellent without a grain? Or hotdogs? Or virtually everything else.

      The video highlights all the diseases that can occur with TOO much sugar over a span of years. But the video is also just as importantly calling out the shitty food mass produced.

      Sugar, in and of itself, isn’t bad, but would you defend High Fructose Corn syrup (which is a sugar)? Would you argue with the stats given about the obesity rise i the population correlating with all the added sugars over the past 30-40 years? To me, that is evident.

      I still use sugar, at times. Maybe in a glass of sweet tea or the occasional cup of ice cream.

      • I’m sorry, BMan , for being so sarcastic. But no, I would never defend HFCS. It’s just that as kids we got a sugar cube for a treat and some energy. Oranges only in the fall just before Christmas. Fresh vegetables in the winter? Dream on, except for root veggies like carrots, potatoes and beets etc. By the time they were eaten they were not really fresh anymore but still had their nutritional value because they were grown individually. No mass production.

        What I mean to say is, people are responsible for their own well being. Dr. Mercola does a good job for a fucked up society that has forgotten its roots. How many people are trying to grow their own gardens today and are stopped in their tracks by the ‘authorities’?

        Oh, by the way, the Sylvester fish ended up in the bath tub alive because we had no refrigeration or ice boxes. Cheers!🙂

        • No problems. My mother has told me similar stories about her youth in post WWII Germany. They lived in the countryside and their treats were honey from a local farmer. Her mother (and herself) would do chores around the small farms for food they grew, so I can understand your point.

          And I don’t want people to think I am berating sugar in and of itself. It just seems that the correlation with the vast amounts of sugar now used parallels the obesity and sickness onslaught. But there are obviously other factors that my mother (and even myself) didn’t have to deal with until the past 30-40 years (vaccines, as one example). Fluoride wasn’t added to the water I drank as a child, neither.

          Most of the food that I ate when very young was homegrown (we were very poor and my Grandmother and Aunt would furnish many vegetables and meat they raised.

          But today it is very different (I haven’t even touched on the lack of exercise I got as compared to most of today’s youth. If I wasn’t outside running around like a wild boy, there was something very wrong. Today, it is commonplace.

          And speaking of mass produced foods and Dr Mercola. he published a WHOPPER this morning (probably deserves a post of its own here).

          United States to Ban Raw Meat Sales, Following Joint Agency Decision

          Based on past conditioning, the latest developments in the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) fight to provide Americans with the safest foods possible may not come as such a great surprise.

          What started as a ban on raw milk to protect consumer health quickly escalated when the federal health authorities realized just how deadly and polluted American meats are. After all, raw meat, whether beef, pork, or poultry, is actually responsible for a vast majority of food-borne illnesses.

          For example, virtually every E. coli infection can be traced back to the unsanitary conditions in which food-producing animals are being raised, processed, transported, stored, and ultimately sold for human consumption.

          As a result, the FDA and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be joining forces to assure “undisputable safety” of all meats sold to Americans. And the only feasible way to assure pathogen-free meats, the agencies claim, is to ban raw meat sales. The joint agency agenda is reportedly slated to take effect as early as next year, at which point all meats sold within the US will be pre-cooked.

            There may be an ulterior goal, which will be to charge even more for fresh meat due to all the safety practices they will be “forced” to implement.

            • You know, I suspect the pre-processing of raw meats will remove any nutrition that was left even after hormones and antibiotics. All our food will be dead making us the perfect fodder for Big Pharma. They might as well start up the ‘Soylent Green’ factories.

              And now, Happy belated AFD!
