Pure White & Deadly: Does Sugar Kill and Cause Disease?

I stole the title “Pure White and Deadly” from a book by John Yudkin that was written in its first edition in 1972. The subtitle is “The new facts about the sugar you eat as a cause of heart disease, diabetes and other killers”.

Understand that this man wrote this book in 1972 and updated it in 1986. He did not know about high fructose corn syrup so all of his work was based on sugar. This man predicted all the increase of disease thirty-nine years ago. I think this is astounding.

This seems overly simple, but the solution to curing disease is to stay out of your doctors’ offices and stop eating sugar. Obviously, stopping high fructose corn syrup is first, because HFCS has made the diseases worse since John wrote this book. In addition to eliminating HFCS, we must also limit fructose from fruits, because they are just as deadly as HFCS if eaten to excess – fructose is fructose.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is also worse because it is made from Genetically Engineered corn and one of the manufacturers of HFCS uses a caustic soda containing mercury. This is in 25 % of all the HFCS.

I know that a bunch of mamby pamby people and others who are the dominions of big business are going to say, “We have got to let the people enjoy themselves and we can’t take sugar off the market because it would not be fair.”

Folks, what is fair?

I don’t think 6 month old babies who are obese is fair.

I don’t think 6 year old obese children who become type II diabetics before they are teenagers is fair.

I don’t think a 48 year old male or female diabetic on dialysis is fair. He or she may be stupid, but it is not all his or her fault, because of the industrial food manufacturers that want him or her addicted to their products just so he or she will spend money on their products to satisfy the stock holders income potential; and if it kills them, they could care less.

It is also not fair that a diabetic consumes about $57,000.00 per month on dialysis from the taxpayers along with other expenses from drugs, doctors’ visits and hospital fees for the heart disease and other conditions that go along with kidney failure.

I don’t think coronary heart disease is fair due to diabetes.

It is not fair that Peptic ulcer, Hiatal hernias, Gallstones and Crohn’s disease are mostly caused by sugar.

There is evidence that myopia/nearsightedness is caused by sugar, HFCS and poor nutrition in the food. Dental decay is caused by sugar. Seborrhea dermatitis diminishes if you lower sugar. There is some evidence that acne improves sometimes with less sugar. Gout is caused by sugar. Liver disease is, in part, caused by sugar and is definitely caused by HFCS. HFCS will cause obesity and cause swelling in the livers of normal people. There is a link to cancer from sugar. Even if sugar doesn’t cause cancer, there is evidence that sugar causes cancer cells to multiply and spread more quickly.

Sugar also has an effect on maturity and longevity and it messes up the normal bacteria in the gut that decreases our immune system causing more colds and flu.

I guess the question is “should we ban sugar and HFCS – or as the industry now calls it “Corn Sugar”.

We can’t ban sugar because people have the right to screw up their lives, but there has to be something that we can do. It is not right for healthy people who try to eat healthy, that they should pay the medical bills of people who don’t care if they live or die and eat crap daily or feed crap to their children.

The first question I think of is, “Can we make corporations responsible for the disease they create”? Our government is so corrupt that they are not going to make corporations do anything that might lower their bottom line in business. The FDA allows drug corporations to kill and disable people just for profits. Also, is there a way to make corporation develop integrity? The only way that comes to mind is to stop buying their unhealthy, sugar-laden products.

Another way to solve the sugar dilemma is taxing all sugar, high fructose corn syrup and all artificial sweeteners. If we tax consumption before and during the disease process, the only people paying the health care bills are the ones who become sick. If we could trust the government to not spend the money on our military industrial complex (They did spend social security monies on the cold war ICBM boondoggle and never replaced the money), then the people would be paying for their disease before they got sick.

The corporations that use and make sugar, HFCS and artificial sweeteners will have conniption fits because they will say that just a little bit, or used in moderation, will not hurt anyone. The problem is like the old Frito Lay commercial for potato chips – “bet you just can’t eat one”. There is no such thing as a little bit or moderation. Sugar, HFCS and artificial sweeteners are used in everything. If you buy corporate industrial food, almost all the products are contaminated. There are only two solutions for unhealthy, processed food. Don’t eat it in the first place or tax the crap out of it to pay the health care bills. The people not eating this stuff should not be taxed in any way.

Remember, this one word that has to become the watch word for human beings and the world – BIOACUMMULATION. It is not that a little bit hurts. It is that a little bit here and a little bit there keeps building up to a whole lot. A whole lot kills and disables.

Remember to read labels, don’t eat sugar and HFCS and buy local, healthy food. The closer your food is grown to your home, the better your health will be.

Check out Dr Hustig, MD on his take of sugar and HFCS. It is because of him that I discovered John Yudkin and the book “Pure White and Deadly”.

Why We should Treat Pain without Drugs

One of the things you cannot fully appreciate until you get older is pain. Before anyone attacks me and says that I don’t understand pain that is so unbearable that you have to take pain medication, you are right, but I am not talking debilitating pain from injuries and incurable diseases.

There are people with pain and there is nothing to do but take toxic medication and suffer the side effects.

I am talking about the pain of arthritis and the normal aches and pains of getting older or maybe from some old minor injuries, like my old hyper- extended knee, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other minor problems.

We live in a time when people still trust doctors and the medical system thinking that they have our best interests in their hearts when in fact their only interest is making people sicker so that they make more money.

The federal government embraces anything or everything drug corporations come up with to make money because it is good for the economy. If drugs happen to kill or disable people, it is just the cost of business and life goes on, that is for some people.  

One of the past pain drug mismanagements was Vioxx, Bextra and  Celebrex. Bextra was taken off the market, Vioxx killed 60,000 and disabled 100,000 people and taken off the market, while Celebrex is still available with commercials on TV telling how it is not that bad even though you might have severe complications and even death.

I said mismanagement because these drugs, particularly Vioxx, were known to kill and disable for 5 years and the manufacturer, Merck, and the FDA knew of the complications and they did nothing to help the people.

The FDA exists to protect drug corporations from lawsuits and financial losses and drug corporations, like Merck, access losses from lawsuits to profits. If the profits are greater than the losses, then they continue to sell their drugs. If the losses are greater than the profits, then they take the products off the market.

Why did people use most of these drugs? There were many people who took them for severe pain but most were taking them for minor aches and pains.

I can’t count the times that a joint in my hand hurt and sometimes it has been hard to lift a large glass of water, or a joint in a foot or knee hurt when walking. I have found that I just need to suck it up and the pain goes away in a day or two or I get into a FAR sauna or massage the area (myself or by a professional).

Unfortunately, when you go to doctors too frequently and they ask if you have any problems and you explain these aches and pains, they put labels on this, usually arthritis, and tell you that you need a pill like Vioxx or Tylenol or other over-the-counter pills. Unfortunately, the “treatment” is worse than the “disease”.

Doctors are not in the get-well business, as they are in the let’s get you hooked on drugs so they can make money off your business.

Most pain is from inflammation and doctors have lots of pills called anti-inflammatory drugs. The truth be known most inflammation can be helped by fish oils, salmon, cod liver oil, krill oil, etc (if they are processed correctly) or massage therapy.

An example of inflammation that can be cured is carpel tunnel syndrome. This real health problem is cause by repetitive motion on a daily basis like typing on a computer key board. The muscles go into spasms and pull on the tendons that attach to bones in the forearm and/or hands.

There are surgeons who buy sports cars and mansions with monies from carpel tunnel syndrome surgery that seldom works, when a good therapeutic massage therapist can “cure” carpel tunnel syndrome in three or four visits of one hour each with a follow up maybe every month or two.

The truth be known, most joint pain can be relieved with quality fish oils, massage and a little time. Needless to say, this treatment is cost -effective, simple to do on your own and no toxic side effects or death.

One of the classic reasons for pain medications is headaches. Again, I know that sometimes people have to use some drugs, but to rush for pills is not in your best interest as the side effects, both short-term and long- term, are far worse than the headache. If you take too much Tylenol, a drug people think is harmless, it can destroy your liver and kill you.

Headaches can be from stress and you need to fix the stress. That simply means doing exercise, changing jobs, changing friends or staying away from family members who might be causing your problems. Remember that it is your job to take care of you because drugs and doctors are not in your best interest.

Another cause of headaches can be from what you consume. MSG is in 95 percent of all processed foods including steak, chicken and pork that you purchase in a regular grocery store. When you purchase these foods in restaurants, the amount of MSG is even greater than from grocery stores. MSG can be a major cause of headaches.

With the advent of artificial foods and artificial sweeteners, headaches have gone up drastically. Equal/aspartame is the largest source of migraine headaches in the USA. Other symptoms caused by this chemical are blindness, brain tumors and an increase in diabetes because it makes you crave carbohydrates.

Another artificial sweetener that has serious side effects is Splenda/sucrolose. People experience headaches, skin eruptions, lethargy and a general feeling of malaise.

What is the solution to all these problems? Live a more natural life without chemicals (drugs or otherwise).

Buy locally grown food and prepare your food from scratch. Some are going to say they have no time to prepare food, but you are going to pay or invest in good health or you will pay with drugs and disease and a shortened life of misery. Chances are you will not get to the golden years with any money to have fun with the grandchildren, or worse yet, your kids will not make it to adulthood to live the USA dream of being better off than their parents.

Do as much for yourself as naturally as possible and avoid doctors for aches and pains.
