The Case Against Sugar – Why Americans Need to Reduce Their Intake

Gary Faubes has a concept that is not necessarily new, but has been unproven up until recently. Mr. Faubes wrote a book called, “The Case Against Sugar” in the 70s, but it was downplayed in the public’s eye with the information about the dangers of saturated fat and the soaring rates of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.


Today, saturated fat has been found not to contribute as severely to these diseases and others as they originally thought. This decision in the medical community is causing Gary Faubes’s book and hypothesis to resurface, but you are not going to be too happy about it.


This development of theories has allowed the forces behind avoiding sugar to multiply and bring about the hypothesis that everyone knows deep down inside has to be true – that sugar is not valuable or even tolerable for any living creature.


Since the overrating of dietary fat in the 70s, there have been skyrocketing rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, gout, cancer, stroke, hypertension, and dementia. Mr. Faubes attributes all of these to the massive consumption of sugar that Americans consume on a daily basis, and he gives details in his book.


There is No Definitive Answer Now


In the early 1900s, the experts identified sugar as fattening with empty calories, and for decades, the modern Western diet and lifestyle, which is high in fat and sugar, were known as leaders in obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Cancer and hypertension also support the negative results of high sugar; obesity is a common denominator.


There is no definitive answer to the issue of sugar in the American diet only because it can’t be proven. Humans and scientists are notoriously inefficient and ineffective in time-lapse studies, so the results aren’t proven yet.


The best tip to offer to the American public is, don’t eat sugar! Or at least reduce the amount of white sugar in your diet. Scientific research has not yet proven it specifically, but all the evidence points to sugar as being the major culprit in all the major diseases. Sugar is a subtle foe, but one that requires direct attention.


Bringing Hope to Imprisoned Offenders Can Transform Society

It’s a major source of despair in our society – more than 2.2 million people are in federal prison or locked up in county jails. While some may feel it’s a good thing that “bad people” are off our streets, there is a long-term downside.

The prison environment tends of be brutal and dangerous. Worse, it can be a place where people who have made mistakes learn to be even more antisocial. A stint in prison can be a training ground that creates hardened criminals – who tend to offend again after release.

The Kabbalah Centre recognizes this problem, and is actively seeking a solution. The idea is to not only stop “ordinary” offenders from becoming more dangerous criminals, but to bring a source of hope and light to troubled lives.

To this end, the Kabbalah Centre established the Correctional Outreach Initiative (COI), a program determined to go inside prisons and bring powerful, positive life-skills to inmates.

If there is one thing an incarcerated individual needs, it’s transformative experiences. They need to know someone cares. They are hungry for help, encouragement and solid, practical resources they can grab onto to make better lives – they need direction to turn their lives around, no matter how far down they have fallen.

Kabbalah Centre volunteers are currently working inside prisons in the U.S. and other countries, such as Mexico and Panama, to teach life skills, methods of overcoming psychological and spiritual anguish, including the practical skills of moving forward.

The Kabbalah Centre also provides printed resources – more than 600 books have been shipped to 200 inmates in the past six month alone.

Helping people offenders break the cycle of violence and despair benefits all society, and makes our world a happier and safer place. That’s what Kabbalah is all about.

The History Of Doritos

Doritos are one of America’s most beloved crunch snacks. The crispy tortilla chips coated in a tasty variety of powdered flavors are the perfect side for a burger, delightful for dipping, great for nachos, and they even make the perfect taco shell. They come in a variety of colors, and sometimes are even used to make a “bouquet”! Their popularity and variety makes it hard to believe where they started back in the mid 1960’s.

Doritos, a Spanish word meaning little golden things, were not the inventors of tortilla chips, they were simply the first company to sell them in mass to the entire US. Their exact origin isn’t exactly certain. One rumor says that a restaurant at Disneyland, Casa de Fritos, which was owned by Frito-Lay at the time, fried up their left over tortillas instead of discarding them and guests loved them. No one is really certain if this is true or not, not even Frito-Lay. There is nothing in their archives to back up the tale, so it is hard to say where the idea really came from.

Frito-Lay, the manufacturer of Doritos, began commercially selling these chips in 1964, where they were only available as plain tortilla chips were described as crispy thin wedges of toasted tortillas with a nice buttery and salty flavor. Basically, they were your average tortilla chip.

The chips gained a big following in Southern California and by 1966 they were sold across the nation. It wasn’t until 1967 that the executives at Frito-Lay decided to change things up a bit and add a new flavor, taco. They simply sprinkled taco seasoning on the chips and sent them to the market. The most popular flavor, Nacho Cheese, wasn’t available until 1972. In 1994 Cooler Ranch Doritos were introduced, now known only as Cool Ranch. In 1999 the company launched Smokey Red BBQ in via a Super Bowl commercial starring Ali Landry. In 2001 Zesty Sour Cream & Cheddar hit store shelve. White Nacho Cheese was introduced in 2004. All Nighter Cheeseburger Doritos made their official debut in 2010, and Rainbow Doritos were sold only for a limited period of time in 2015. A very thorough history of this popular snack can be found here.

The True History Of The Croissant

Most of us have pictured ourselves traveling the world, stopping in France where we take in the Eiffel Tower and sip lattes while nibbling on a fresh baked croissant. Hold that thought for a moment because it turns out that this flakey and buttery bread treat is not actually French.

It’s true, you’ve been living a lie your whole life. Of course, it’s one that isn’t your fault, it’s a misconception that has been pushed on television, in travel articles, in food blogs, the list goes on. It turns out this delightful treat actually hails from Austria. It was born in the 17th century of Austria and was introduced to France sometime in the 18th century. In France, the croissant and other morning pastries are called viennoisere which is actually French meaning “things from Vienna”. Yep, the French knew the whole time and just let us go on believing a lie. Check out a brief history done by the Smithsonian Magazine here.

While the true history of the croissant surprises some, it is far from the only food that has a mistaken origin. French fries are also often believed to hail from France, but again, this simply isn’t the case. These delightful fried potato sticks actual come from the smaller country of Belgium, and this explains why Belgian fries are always delectable, because they started the trend and know how to do it best.

Ketchup is often thought to be as American as apple pie, but again, this is simply incorrect. Ketchup actually comes from China. It is derived from a sauce that was made from fermented fish but as it traveled the globe it was altered until it became a tomato based product loaded with vinegar.

Finally, a crowd favorite, nachos. While they were actually invented in Mexico, they are not a Mexican treat. The dish was created when Mexicans were trying to find a dish that pleased the American palate, thus making them a bit more appropriate on a Tex-Mex menu instead of listed as a true Mexican treat.

Weather you believe it or not, we live in a global food world that shares and reshapes recipes as each country sees fit. Some things stick in countries better than other creating a special place in the hearts of its people, but they still hold their origins from other locales.


America Braces For Whipped Cream Shortage

America, buckle up and get your whisk because it’s looking like the holidays are heading for a whipped cream disaster. The country is currently in what can only be deemed a whipped cream shortage, and at one of the products peak times of year. Pies, eggnog, and hot cocoa are abounding as Christmas draws near and customers are finding the grocery store shelves empty as they prepare for their holiday meals and treats. The shortage is poorly timed and due to a widespread shortage of nitrous oxide.

Companies that make canned whip cream like Reddi-Wip depend on nitrous oxide to make their spray cans of whipped cream work. Due to a plant explosion in Florida earlier in the year, companies are forced to slow their production. Details on the explosion can be found here. ConAgra, parent company of Reddi-Wip products has reportedly halted making their real cream and non-dairy products. The company is working with suppliers in hopes to find a quick solution.

Producers are currently looking to gain nitrous oxide from Europe, but it is still in the works. Meanwhile, consumers are feeling the effect and taking to the internet to vent. Many are lamenting about the loss of the fluffy whipped delight for pies and lattes.

Currently, remaining supplies of nitrous oxide are being reserved for the medical field only. It is more commonly known as laughing gas and is used mostly as a sedative for dental procedures.

For those who are looking to still salvage their holidays, have no fear. Whipped cream can be made and enjoyed without the use of aerosol cans. Break out the whisk, combine a little sugar and some heavy whipping cream and with a little elbow grease, you’ll have some of the best whipped cream you’ve ever tasted. Stir in vanilla or any other extract for added flavor. Peppermint whipped cream is ideal this time of year for both hot cocoa as well as lattes! If you are feeling really festive, throw in a few drops of food coloring for bright red or green whipped cream to garnish your sweet treats!

Alternative Dairy Drinks: How Healthy Are They Really

In an effort to avoid such dairy-related phenomena such as “mad-cow” disease, lactose intolerance and a host of other dairy-related health issues as promulgated by the food industry, health-food industry or even the FDA, Americans have turned to alternative modes of beverage nourishment.


Apart from questionable so-called “energy drinks” that are laden with sugar and caffeine, consumers can now select from an array of almond milk, almond drinks, coconut milk, coconut beverages, soy-based drinks and a host of combo drinks such as almond-coconut or even cashew-coconut drinks. However, the question still remains, and it still needs to be answered: Which is better nutrition wise?


Some Expert Opinions


While some nutritionists insist that only by reading the label of the product can one determine which best, others argue equally convincingly that plant-based drinks are best. However, another group of nutrition experts presents a solid case in favor of continuing the time-honored approach of drinking cow’s milk. Let’s examine the argument in favor of cow’s milk.


Recent studies appearing in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition confirm that there’s a wide variance in plant-based beverages as to their nutritional benefits. Hence, it is recommended that young children continue on the traditional approach of drinking cow’s milk.


The research paper went on to further state that also found in cow’s milk are about eight grams of protein and adequate amounts of calcium. Also contained in cow’s milk are nutrients such as potassium, vitamins B12, A and D.


So, Which Is Better?


When we examine the nutritional value of soy milk, for instance, the equation shifts somewhat. We find that almond, coconut and cashews pale in comparison to soy. Amazingly, soy beverages equal almost as much protein nutrients as does cow’s milk; however, it does lack in calcium.


So, what happened to these nutritious plant-based beverages? They are all known for their healthy benefits, and yet they fall short when analyzed in comparison to cow’s milk? Quite simply, it was the processing of the products with comparatively large amounts of water that killed off most of their benefits to our health. Dilution was the culprit.


In fact, based on another 2014 study, 2,831 children were tested found to have lower blood levels of vitamin D than those who had not swayed from their normal cow’s milk regimen.
