There still exists something inside the human mind from way back when we were apes....: if it feels wrong, tastes wrong or smells wrong... it probably
While sugar does taste nice, the refined kind is no less a substance of abuse than say alcohol, tobacco or similar refined stuff. The refined versions
are made for one purpose only... addiction. The manufacturers know we get hooked. They didn't start out because they want to improve public health,
please don''t be gullible.
Like many have said; use with careful moderation, avoid use at all if possible (and it is).
You don't need the sweet taste, your tongue just still like it, because the body recognizes it as free "here and now" energy. It was useful back
when us surviving a drought, flood, cold spell, hot spell, whatever made it difficult for the human or ancestor to survive.
At this point in time, food is still for most of us abundant and therefore as such we don't need the fast carbohydrates.
Having said all this, I have my doubts that sweeteners are actually as deadly as pointed out several times in this thread and articles. There's
simply not enough proof or cross examination.
But my own approach to it is that if it is manufactured, it probably isn't that good for us.
The cavemen didn't die early because of their diet, they died because they didn't know medicine.
Choose with your heart and intuition... not based on what the establishment wants you to or what the adverts tell you is healthy and not.
Being a commercial photographer, I've had my share of involvement in making bad things look good and I know how easy it is to trick the human mind.
