Sugars R Not Us

October 2, 2013

41c+G4xASTL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_As a nutritionist, this didn’t surprise me, but I still loved hearing a Harvard scientist expound on it: Human bodies were not designed for the amount of sugar and processed foods we dump into them. Hence, many illnesses – from the big diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease to lesser ailments like acid reflux – have become epidemic in our society.

Dr. Daniel Lieberman is an evolutionary biologist whose new book, The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health and Disease, was featured on NPR’s “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross the other day. Give the show a listen or a read; it’s well worth your time!

    If you avoid sugar you won’t crave it … try it for 2 weeks …. it’s amazing.
