    Complications Caused by Heart Disease

    If you have heart disease, your heart will be less efficient at pumping blood. The blood vessels throughout your body, which facilitate blood flow to various organs, may become damaged as well.

    What Healthy Eating Means to You

    One of the biggest challenges when it comes to healthy eating really isn’t developing new habits. Before you work on changing habits, it’s important to define what healthy eating means to you. The truth is it’s going to be different for everyone, so before you begin adding new healthy eating habits, it’s a good idea to understand what healthy eating means to you. What Are Your Current Eating Habits? To figure out what you want your healthy eating to look like, begin with where you are now. How and what do you eat on a daily basis?

    Sugar Blues

    You Probably Have Sugar Blues I’ve been re-reading the classic book, “Sugar Blues” by William Dufty.  This book, written in 1975, remains the definitive crushing indictment of sugar every one of us should read and read again. We should read it to save ourselves and our families, to help solve the challenges of weight gain, cancer, depression, other mental diseases, diabetes and so on. Last night I was reading in the book about Dr. John Tintera who, in the 1940s, rediscovered the importance of the endocrine system, particularly the adrenal glands.  He found a direct correlation between patients with endocrine challenges and patients whose systems could not handle sugar; patients…

    Does Sugar Make You Old?

    Does Sugar Make You Old? Does sugar make you old? When sugar reacts with amino acids, AGEs (advanced glycation end products) are formed.  It occurs in the foods we eat and also in our bodies. It’s easy to remember as it contributes in a major way, along with oxidation, to disease and aging. Reducing AGEs is critical if you want to slow the development and/or progression of disease and aging in general. If you eat a typical American diet, did you know you will most likely consume 2 ½ pounds of sugar in a week?  Reducing dietary intake of AGEs reduces oxidative stress and inflammatory markers in your body.  Remembering…

    Sugar and Inflammation

    Sugar and Inflammation It was an interesting weekend. We had our eleven year old nephew stay with us for three days, and we were out doing things we don’t usually do. At a popular amusement center, we were waiting to go on one of the rides, and I was surprised by a sign that was posted at the entrance. It read, “CAUTION – For your safety, the ride attendant will ask you to lift your belly, so the safety belt can secure your waist.” I had never seen a sign like that anywhere, and I was struck by the tsunami of obesity that we are enduring. It made me think…

    Sugar Addiction, and who in the world is Roger Mason?

    Sugar Addiction, and who in the world is Roger Mason? I don’t always agree with everything Roger Mason writes. But…I do think he has some valid points, and I do take some of his vitamins and his mineral products.  They are affordable and well done! Today I want to share with you his latest article which is spot on about sugar addiction and sugar substitutes.  My favorite part is when he writes: “We have no need at all for sugar in our diets. The real answer is to just stop this sugar addiction. Fifty years ago we didn’t do this. No culture has ever done this. 1 in 3 American children…

    Sugar and Health Problems Those of us who love the taste of sugar and who try to stay away from it to stay healthy will be thrilled with the results of a new study released that states there’s no clear link between sugar and health problems!  Thrilled that is, right up until I tell you that this new study was funded by the world’s leading soda and snack companies!!
