How can sugar be bad? Is cholesterol really such a bad guy? What about all the fat in our diet? Is sugar actually addictive?
Let’s watch some video presentations from Dr. Neal Barnard, MD, President of President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and Dr. Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, to find out!
In these videos, these top nutrition-based doc’s talk about sugar, cholesterol and fats, as well as some other cool things.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- Why sugar in our food today is extremely bad for our health;
- Why babies become “attached” to mothers’ breast milk, and why breast feeding is important;
- The biochemical reasons for why sugar is a problem and causes plaques in our arteries;
- Why fibre is so important for our health from digestive tract to brain and heart;
- A brief mention of the nature (and corruption) of our food and health industries;
- And how we can address some of these issues we face
Please, take some time to listen to the following videos.
