Holistically inaccurate given that if you actually dried the solution far less syrup is in the bottom, than the hanging baggy of white table sugar attached to these products. Never mind very few products are manufactured with table sugar. Author should hang a baggy from standard 2qt container of Orange Juice, as good as it is for you, the amount of natural sugar in Orange Juice makes Mountain dew look like cool aid in comparison! Try Apple juice if you like seeing a jaws drop to the floor!
That being said, when are people going to get it into their heads its not the sugar itself that is the enemy, it is their own personal bad habits and metabolism. You're body breaks everything down into sugars, proteins and minerals. So if so much of what you eat becomes sugar, and you remove everything from your diet that contains sugar, breaks down into sugar, then, you are Starving yourself. Get the picture?
Idiot... "Is sugar toxic?" If sugar is toxic than he should be dead. You cannot live without sugar. Sugar is what every cell in your body consumes to produce energy. Without it, you cannot live. What that idiot should have been saying is that chemicaly altered sugars, for example corn syrup, may be toxic. They really should stick to the truth rather than propaganda. Im all for seeing our fat country shape up, but unless they are trying to sell some new synthetic food supplement... This is not the way to help the country... Eat sugar, get cancer, get diabetes, get heart disease... False.
It is very much idiotic to declare all sugar toxic.There are several types of sugar. If some one wants to start a war, they had better be sure to be specific. Glucose, Fructose, Galactose, Sucrose, Maltose, and Lactose. How they differ is in the arrangement of the alcohol on the ring. Different sugars have slightly different construction but all are based on the carbon chain linked with an Oxygen. Theory sugests that chemicaly processed sugars are contributing factors to disease and indeed this may well hold truth. But no, not all sugar is Toxic. What absolutely uneducated statement.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar#Health_effects
