I received a text from one of my friends on Saturday and she said "I saw that Dr. Lustig was going to be on 60-minutes". I had no idea what she was talking about & didn't answer her. I thought maybe she sent the text to the wrong person. When I saw her on Monday she mentioned it again, and I was embarrassed to say that I didn't know what she was talking about. She's like "You know, THE Dr. Lustig! Sugar-free?" And it hit me!
A month or so ago I came across the BEST YouTube clip! It was an hour & a half lecture given by Dr. Lustig, a UCSF (University of California San Francisco) pediatric endocrinologist, about how sugar is toxic. I told my friend about it, because she is a dietitian, and I wanted her thoughts on it.
I couldn't wait to see how the topic was presented on 60-minutes, so I looked it up online. It is somewhat short, at 14 minutes long, and it is very well done! Yea! The word is being spread. I know people don't want to hear it, but it's important & really needs to be addressed.
Watch "Is Sugar Toxic" on 60-minutes
I was excited to talk about it with my dietitian friend. She agrees with it all. I'm going to show it to my kids!
