Guest: Dr. Trygve Tollefsbol As I’ve been saying all along… Sugar is the devil! Eat more and live less. Listen and enjoy….
We’ve been talking about it for a while, but Bailey Jay and I finally launched Sugar and Spice, a trans news and advice show! By very happy coincidence, Namoli
This week, Alec talks with Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist at UC San Francisco, about our country’s addiction to sugar. Children today are the first American generation to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, in large part due to obesity. According to Lustig, this obesity often comes from eating too much sugar.
Sugar is hard to avoid. A recent study reveals that 80 percent of the 600,000 food items in America are laced with added sugar. Lustig says, “There is not one biochemical reaction in your body, not one, that requires dietary fructose, not one that requires sugar. Dietary sugar is completely irrelevant to life. People say oh, you need sugar to live. Garbage.” Dr. Robert Lustig has made it his business to get the rest of the world to pay attention.
Happy first anniversary to “the three godlessteers,” Lamar, Eli, and Joe. Thanks guys for giving us a great year of podcasting. May you all be in Heaven ten minutes before the Devil knows your dead.
If you don’t yet listen to the Chariots of Iron podcast, you are missing out. Below is the info for episode that kicks off their second season. Their guest is PZ Myers, and if that is not reason enough to listen, you get to hear Joe say, “If the toupee had been invented like 3000 years ago, how many people wouldn’t have been killed by bears.”
