RESEARCH NEWS: SUGAR INTAKE AND FDA GUIDELINES

Leave a comment

The FDA just announced that Americans should eat and drink no more than 50 grams of sugar — the same as in a single can of Coke — each day. FDA also wants to change nutrition labels to differentiate between two kinds of sugar in food and drinks:

· That which is naturally occurring (like the kind in a super-sweet peach or honey crisp apple)

· That which is added in the production process (like the corn syrup added to soda, sports drinks, and many cereals)

For your reference, a can of soda, has 160 calories, 50 grams of sugar, no protein and no fiber.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
