SUGAR IS THE GATEWAY DRUG by Cathy D. Slaght
We have a crisis (opportunity).
We’ve been overdosed with sugar.
80% of what we find at the supermarket is sugared up. (This isn’t made clear- even if you try to read the labels, there are 56 different names for sugar.)
School food programs are LOADED- 11 teaspoons in the breakfast alone.

Maybe it’s better to start by first ADDING some foods instead of trying to go cold turkey on sugar. Here are a few that are known to benefit the pancreas:
That train is going to run. You can step out of the way. Or not.
