Nice repost, HOW. I must say, I agree with you Lili. The pop OD was more about the poisonous pop than the "sugar" per se. We really need to underline that. It seems it can never be repeated too often, the Sugar in anything processed and 'designed' the way soda pop is, to keep people coming back, is NOT the kind of Sugar a body can use. At the same time, real, natural, fully complexed sugars--with live enzymes and a good mineral profile -and all the wondrous synergy of that- are EXACTLY what a body needs.
