Sugar is definitely an issue. It isn’t the sweetness as such, but the processed form that we add that gives the sugar rush, then crash. More natural and complex sweeteners like maple syrup or honey hit the system slower and don’t cause the same rush.
As for controlling it. I can see suggestions about controlling the amount of sugar in processed foods like cereals and other foods that are supposed to be nutritious rather than junk snacks.
On the other side, the last thing we need is more regulation that won’t be enforced.
I never liked sugar much. I drink coffee without sugar and I don’t like sweet drinks. Sometimes I eat chocolate and cakes if they are on the table, but I don’t miss them if they aren’t. I think I can live without sugar.
But I pledge to start eating tons of sugar, and to encourage others to do the same, if the authorities start controlling sugar. Big Brother must learn to stay the fuck out of our lives, and I prefer dying of diabetes and liver damage than dying of boredom and frustration under a nanny-state.
