Sugar as a toxin

Between watching Forks Over Knives a few days ago, which showed how eating a whole-food, plant based (read: vegan) diet can not only help reduce the risk of many chronic illnesses but reverse them as well, and this bit from 60 Minutes last night, I’m more determined than ever to really change my diet and do it up right.  It helps that Heidi’s already taken refined sugar out of her diet as much as possible and we’re keeping our processed foods to a minimum these days.

Still, I have to find a way to avoid all that damn Easter candy.

I wonder how the sugar beet people feel about all this.  Oh yeah, it’s all high-fructose corn syrup now anyway.
