So sugar is the ultimate health food? Ok, this is definitely a case where punctuation matters. It actually should say…
Nothing, is better for you than sugar!
Here’s a true story for you. A sugar-boat shipwrecked in 1793. 5 sailors survived and so did some of the sugar that they were carrying. They were marooned on an island. On the bright side it only took 9 days for them to be found!
Here’s the shocker! They looked like they had been marooned for weeks if not a whole month. Their bodies were wasted away and they were in real bad shape. They had been eating the sugar they were transporting (and drinking a little rum too). This event surprised Francois Magendie the French Physiologist. He decided to run an experiment where he fed animals sugar and only sugar but plenty of calories to live. They wasted away and died quite rapidly.
This lead to the realization that it would be better to eat nothing than to eat refined sugar. The empty calories of the processed sugar actually pulled stored nutrients from the body faster!
The sailors would have been better off just eating nothing.
It may not be happening in such a dramatic display but too much processed refined sugar in our diets is pulling nutrients and making us sicker.
I’ll let you think on that for a bit and I’ll be back in a couple days with some shocking stats on sugar in the American Diet.
P.S. Eat some broccoli!
