PLEASE read this article from The New York Times about how sugar is just as addictive as cocaine and nicotine, and how the food industry is happy to have us addicted to sugar so it can continually sell us their junk.

The solution? As the article states:

“A better approach to sugar rehab is to promote the consumption of whole, natural foods. Substituting whole foods for sweet industrial concoctions may be a hard sell, but in the face of an industry that is exploiting our biological nature to keep us addicted, it may be the best solution for those who need that sugar fix.”
