How I saved my kids from sugar

Some researchers suggest that sugar is in and of itself uniquely and dramatically toxic—that independent of its effect on weight, sugar increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, fatty liver disease, and other illnesses. Others see sugar as a driver of illness only in terms of its contribution to weight gain. I’m not wholly convinced that added and free sugars—those incorporated into foods during processing or preparation and those found in honeys, syrups, and fruit juices—are markedly worse than highly refined carbohydrates, but I also don’t think we need to wait for a medical consensus on sugar’s inherent toxicity in light of the sheer quantities of it this generation of children is consuming.
