And also... I hear a lot of this garbage about how "sugar is poison." Well y'know, so is alcohol... how many of y'all are prepared to do completely without that? I know some of you don't drink, or drink very little, so I'm really not talking to y'all... but to all those who spout this "sugar is poison" crap and then guzzle beer, wine, and/or hard liquor like it's goddamn manna from heaven. It's a solvent. It's toxic. That's why you "feel funny" when you drink it... just like most of the "buzz" from smoking isn't nicotine, but carbon monoxide.
That is a good point, but many who have quit sugar have also quit alcohol
Moderate amounts of red wine have actual health benefits, sugar does not
Sugar also interferes with beneficial gut bacteria in a very big way, much the same as many artificial sweeteners which I disdain as much as processed sugar and corn syrups
And so-called "raw" sugar is not harm reduction, its just less processed - it does have extremely minute amounts of trace elements, but the amount is negligible
