    Chocolate over dose. And you wonder why some doctors re wanting to regulate sugar as a controlled substance.

    re: night-gaunt

    I doubt you will find too many docs who want that. There is a group of activists out there that want to force people to be unhealthy by this or that one-size-fits-all fad diet. They grab one fact and run with it.
    .
    For example, how many assume saturated fat or transfats increase LDL? But unlike monounsaturates being shown to increase HDL and lowering LDL, no study exists as of yet that links saturated or trans fats to an increase in LDL. It’s just assumed, like salt is just assumed to cause problems, despite the lack of any study that proves it and multiple studies that indicate the reverse.
    .
    There is no moderation in what they do or advocate. They tend to be the OCD/drug-using types that see no difference between a nanogram of naturally occurring lead in groundwater and a wheelweight on the counter. In researching it last year, no statistics now exist on lead poisoning in the U.S., suggesting strongly that it’s incredibly rare. Despite that, what do we see on TV? Ignored are real problems like lead in central africa, where it routinely kills people.
    .
    There is no incidence of any disease as having occurred from amounts of 1 part per billion of anything, but the latest has been to try to blame naturally-occurring arsenic, copper, lead, etc., on mining, when it’s extremely rare to find water anywhere on the planet (even ice has dust in it) that doesn’t have several parts per billion of metals naturally occurring in it.
    .
    Arsenic is a fun one. It naturally occurs in tiny amounts. It’s required by some of your enzymes. For years the standard for water was 50 parts par billion because that level was a fraction of the level where any illness had been seen at. So, what happens? In order to make trouble, Clinton signs an order at the end of his presidency reducing the amounts to 10ppb. It made absolutely no changes to personal health (except maybe not enough for those aforementioned enzymes, which needs to be researched further), but cost an immense amount of money to utilities.

    Think you might be taking Night’s comment a bit too seriously?

    Yeah, be careful around Knight. He took off my head yesterday like it was a chocolate bunny. Too bad he was so quick to start a fight he didn’t even notice that my comment, which was intended to be humorous was addressed to another person whose screen name also starts with Knight.

    There are a few doctors who want to regulate sugar. The average person in the USA eats over 70 lbs of sugar a year now. Up from 42 lbs just 20 years ago.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    70 pounds of sugar in a year?
    Hmmm…….
    70 lbs. divided by 365 days equals 0.19178082 – oh, heck with it. Let’s say 0.19 lb. per day average. That’s about 3 ounces per day. So how bad is that? Just how much damage does that do? How does it compare to other things we eat; how much Vitamin C do we consume over a year? How much thiamine, niacine, riboflavin, et cetera et cetera et cetera do we take in? How much is good or bad, and why?

    That may explain why the diabetes rate is as high as it is.

    It seems Heart’s tutu skirt is back for a short time. I think.

    Not at all. Nothing I say will stop you are me from consuming sugar. So much of it is in all kinds of foods it doesn’t need to be.
