Would the health care system ever advise an alcoholic to drink alcohol at least six times a day and take pills to suppress the cravings?
No, hardly. But when it comes to eating disorders the standard of care often seems to be just that sick.
I got an email from Carolina Falini, who tells her story of how she became free from her sugar addiction and eating disorder when she did the opposite of what the health care system advised her to do: Continue Reading →

Could unruly kids with ADHD-like problems be hypersensitive to sugar and wheat? Here’s yet another story about what can happen when parents try to exclude such foods:
OK, let’s try this. We’ll skip wheat and sugar. We started at the beginning of the school year. No wheat flour and no sugar (either at school or at home). Three days later we already noticed a significant difference and now, 4 weeks later, we’re not the only ones cheering…
The original story here: ADHD or Too Much Sugar? (Google translated from Swedish)
Many experts have previously dismissed the association between sugar and ADHD. Studies designed to give children small amounts of sugar (up to a pint – half a liter – of soda) have not shown any significant short-term effect. But the effect of long-term use of large amounts of bad carbohydrates is unknown. And there’s a high-quality study that demonstrated a significant improvement from avoiding, among other things, sugar and wheat flour.
There are scientists who believe that ADHD symptoms are similar to withdrawal symptoms from drugs and thus may present because the child is addicted to junk food/sugar. If you remove this food, the problem would soon diminish, which seems to be a common experience among parents and teachers.

Are you looking to quit smoking now that the new year is here? Then the statistics below – from a new article in The Lancet - may make you go for it.
The graphs below illustrate how big the chance is for a 30-year-old to survive until a certain age, depending on wether they smoke or not:
What do the graphs show us? That non-smokers live on average a decade longer than smokers. The chance of reaching your 80th birthday is now good in the western world… unless you’re a smoker. Then you’ll probably die earlier.
Previous smokers who quit, according to the same article, dramatically improve their odds. They will live almost as long as people who never smoked.
Do you want to see your grandchildren grow up? Then dump the cigarettes.
The Taxation Route
The article also includes intriguing figures on what happens in countries applying a hefty penalty tax on cigarettes. Presumably, a similar tax on sugar would yield similar results: Continue Reading →
