I’m slowly getting back into a normal routine, and therefore able to start posting again-yay! Thank you all for your patience with me while I got settled.
I’m going to post twice today, both under the new category of “Get your geek on”. This is a section where I will post interesting (what I think are interesting anyway!) news and research articles, giving us the opportunity to discuss our thoughts and how we think it will impact our ability to live wellthy. The first one I’m going to post was suggested by Sarah K., and addresses the suggestion by researchers is San Francisco that sugar should be regulated like alcohol and tobacco. They argue that sugar is not just a bad food choice, but that it is addicting and as detrimental to our health as those government regulated products like booze and cigarettes. Some of their suggestions are to tax foods and drinks that are high in sugar, regulate the advertising that tends to cater to children, and to limit the availability of sugary products. Before I post my thoughts on this, I want to hear some of yours. Good idea, or a bunch of crazies? Feel free to talk amongst yourselves 🙂
