Sugar…evil or not?


Sugar…evil or not?

Congratulations to our 4 new Alamo yellow belts, Mr. Maurer, Ms. Libera, Ms. Kiraly and Ms. Kiraly!

There has been an interesting debate going on in the papers recently about sugar. This first article written last week in the New York Times is titled “Is Sugar Toxic?”. Another article with similar thoughts from the Atlantic Wire titled “The Case Against Sugar (and its Lobbyists)”. However, not everyone seems to think sugar is bad for you. The Huffinton Post ran an article today called “Sugar Isn’t Evil: A Rebuttal”. I personally have some strong feelings about an excess of sugar, but I think it’s important to see all sides of the coin and make educated decisions. Enjoy the reads!

    I have to be honest, I know sugar is hard on my liver but it sure tastes good. What a bummer:(
