As your friend, I wanted to let you know about the dangers of sugar.
I recently picked up this fantastic read by Dr John Yudkin “Pure, White and Deadly” which gives a fascinating insight to the dangers of sugar consumption and its increased use worldwide.
Did you know, there is no physiological requirement for humans to have sugar? This means we can get all of our nutritional needs without having a single spoon of white, brown or raw sugar. More worryingly, if only a small fraction of what is already known about the effects of sugar were to be revealed in relation to any other material used as a food additive, that material would be banned.
It certainly has made me rethink my outlook on sugar, and if you’re not one for reading, I’ll be sure to do a summary video soon on drnora.com.
So next time you reach out for that mid afternoon biscuit take a moment to think, ‘what benefit is this having on my body?’ Take care and stay healthy 😘
What a fantastic day! I had the honour of being invited to speak at the @terrywhitechemmartpacpines diabetes workshop.
Not only did the attendees have access to a very knowledgeable dietician, @be.wellfed, we also went through the different types of diabetes, symptoms, how best to manage it and they had the chance to speak to the brilliant pharmacy team.
Thank you for everyone who came and I look forward to the next one!
If you have any concerns or questions about diabetes, feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.
