What the hell! Sugar really is poison!

02 March 2012, 12:10
How in the name of walking poo is it still ok for refined sugar to be in circulation?

It's like flippin alcohol, cigarettes, MSG and all the other super healthy things on our shelves that are stylishly packaged and sold to all of us hapless idiots who happily drink, suck and shove it into our mouths.
Freedom of choice and all that I guess.

Anyhoo.
I was getting strange head rushes, felt tired all the time and just generally felt swak with a capital 'K'.

So I went to le doctor.
After a batch of expensive blood tests I ventured into his office with fear and trepidation at the impending piles of pills I might have to buy at le kickback chemist.

To my surprise, he told me that this was 'fairly common' these days because of refined sugar.
I was then instructed to cease all sugar (including fructose) and replace it with something called Xilitol.

Xilitol sounded like something out of a Battlestar Galactica episode but I went with it anyway.


"FAIRLY COMMON?"
People walking around feeling half dead is "fairly common"?

Um. Why is this crap still on our shelves if it is making people sick?


Long story short:

After 3 months I had dropped 10kg's, felt much better and had much more energy. Xilitol still makes me feel like a hipster guru but it is actually sweeter than sugar so I haven't missed a beat.  

Doc even told me not to take those weird sweeteners you see everywhere because evidently they are unhealthy too. 

Surely there must be some kind of health authority that knows about this stuff? 
I think that the same warnings we see on ciggy boxes need to appear on sugar products.

Big business and their ability to sweep inconvenient info under the carpet.
It is madness!
