Sweet Deception

Sweet Deception is actually the name of a book exposing part of our Big Food industry.  It’s not our fault that we have been fooled by food corporations.

David and I have listened to Dr Tom Giammatteo (co-founder of Integrative Manual Therapy program) educate about sugar and sugar substitutes.  He had a book with him that was  8 1/2 by 11 and over an inch thick! with research against artificial sugar substitutes.  Our Food and Drug administration is clearly not overseeing this lucrative industry to safeguard our health.  So here it is again – a reason the U S functioning health is ranked #35 or #37 by the World Health Organization (WHO).

One of the folks who attended the Weston A Price (see previous “WAPF” entries) potluck in February 2020 said her Pastor at church actually preached against HFCS (high fructose corn syrup).  He said it was evil.  Afterwards she took a stroll down a long aisle at her local supermarket filled with cereals.  What did she discover?  There was almost nothing for her to choose without it.

High fructose corn syrup came into the food supply in 1968.  It was formulated to increase profits.   It’s now pervasive in the food supply that is supposed to be nourishing our children.

Eating through the COVID-19 virus time we’ll all be better off steering clear of high sugar/sugar substitutes to get through this time.
