Even Morgan Stanley, the well-known investment bank, cannot be quite any longer – people’s “sweet tooth” will impact global growth. Sugar – the economic killer (and people are dying).

The Morgan Stanley report said that sugar consumption was a major culprit in both diabetes and obesity — and the worldwide taste for a sugar rush could cut productivity by more than 18 per cent over the next 20 years.

Trends for 2015

I heard about the “trends” for 2015 and it made me happy. Finally I’m trendy! For many of you this is probably “2012.”

  • Sugar is “out,” including artificial sweeteners I hope.
  • Salt and sour, as in fermenting, vinegar etc. are in.
  • Fat like butter, coconut oil, etc. are back.
  • Protein from insects is in, like bars made of cricket flour (too much sugar). Thank you, but no thank you. Not for me.

Personally I think that going grain-free is also a trend, without eating gluten-free junk food of course. Read about what to avoid from the Authority Nutrition.

Next time I’m going to write about my wish; that it will be trendy for everyone.

The first “sugar free” school in Sweden

haninge

No more birthday celebrations or treats and no more “fika”* for the grown ups.

This is a picture from one of the first sugar free schools in Sweden. No sugar, more physical activity and more play are the new prescriptions for the children in the schools in this area, just outside Stockholm.

I think the Sugar Initiative would be pleased.

This is the article in Swedish.

* Fika is a very important Swedish word which means coffee break; gathering for e.g. coffee or tea and something to it like cinnamon buns, cookies, or cakes. But, you can “fika” healthy too or just be social.

Sugar Science Initiative

The research shows strong evidence of links between the over consumption of added sugar and chronic diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and liver disease. It also reveals evidence linking sugar to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, although the team assessed that more research is needed before those links can be considered conclusive.

The average American consumes nearly three times the recommended amount of added sugar every day, which is taking a tremendous toll on our nation’s health.

SugarScience.org cites research showing that drinking just one can of soda per day can increase a person’s risk of dying from heart disease by nearly one-third, and can raise the risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by one-quarter.

More than 27 million Americans have been diagnosed with heart disease, which is the nation’s leading cause of death. Another 25.8 million Americans have Type 2 diabetes, caused by the body’s resistance to the hormone insulin coupled with the inability to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels.

Twenty years ago, type 2 diabetes was unheard of among children, but now, more than 13,000 children are diagnosed with it each year. Diabetes is a devastating disease and we know that it is directly related to the added sugar we consume in food and beverages.

Another rising concern is the impact of added sugar on Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), which affects 31 percent of adults and 13 percent of children, and can lead to cirrhosis and liver failure.
