We all know that sugar is not good for us but we probably don’t know the details of why it is so bad so we just continue to eat it. Even if we know it is bad.. well.. just a bit of a teaspoon here and one there.
Of course it is not just the sugar we eat but also the things we eat that we do not know are sugar that matter as well. For example, there is rarely a child in the US whose parents don’t think that fruit juice is bad for their child if they took the fresh fruit and squeezed it themselves fresh off the tree. The fact is that the moment we separate the fruit from the fiber, the juice becomes only sugar. The same with the new fad “juicing,” the fad “shake” and “smoothies” are all sugar water or sugar milk.
Another sad truth is that healthy foods have a lot of sugars in them and we trust that because the label says it is good for us, it really is. Well here is a film that is playing called That Sugar Film played by Gameau, the same guy who went on McDonald’s diet for some time. This time he went on healthy food diet: low fat, ate no sugar, no soft drinks, no ice cream, no chocolate, no cakes. Within 3 weeks he was told he had fatty liver disease. This is serious folks!
That Sugar Film
The movie is out now so go watch it! Here is the write-up of what it is all about. Sugar also dehydrates and causes migraines plus makes you swell. So next time you are trying to remove your ring from your finger and you need soap and water to do that, remember what you ate. Chances are whatever you ate had sugar in it!
Please watch what you eat! Your life depends on it!
Comments are welcome!
About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.
Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population.
Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease.
As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017.
Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.

1. How come sugar is not on the FDA list of adverse reactions?
2. How come people craving sugar are not incorporated in the DSM disorder list?
3. Comes close to a modern version of the Pied Piper of Hamelin story.

Because then the sugar lobby paying government officials off would doom the officials… I think our government would collapse. Also our pharmaceutical industry would collapse. Not eating sugar of any kind would prevent probably 90% of our modern diseases (including cancer).. so what would they do? Can you imagine the mass unemployment? Can you imagine hospitals closing their doors and doctors standing in line for food stamps? Nah……………… nothing that good will ever happen
Hmmmm, so diagnosing the human condition as a severe case of CID* is an accurate view of the situation and not sugarcoating the state of affairs?
* Compulsive Insanity Disorder.
Btw, Joslin Diabetes Center claims that, and I quote: “What is known is that eating too many sweets doesn’t cause diabetes!”
