Sugar Bad
The Awl

As a former diabetic, and one of the less than 2% to get off of metformin after starting it, this article definitely resonates with me. I don’t know that I’m willing to call sugar poison. I totally agree with its addictive properties, especially when the sweet aspect is partnered with salty-fatty mixture most often found in processed foods.

The concern I have is the obvious solution seems to be simply to eliminate sugar. While true, for those of us who gravity especially favored, the problem isn’t really the sugar, its the craving and binging associated with it. Said another way, as someone happily addicted to chocolate, I say stop the craving, not the chocolate. The problem is mental more than external.
