Previous shows have outlined in detail our foundational macro-nutritional based FOOD IS FUEL recommendations for the epigenetic prevention of multiple chronic disease, and cancer. This template however, is just the beginning of the WELLNESS journey. In todays show we will be discussing the disruptive metabolic effects of added sugars, in particular High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), and introducing our listeners to the very metabolically DIRTY molecule FRUCTOSE, and where it can be found in your food.

A natural Segway into a didactic discussion of sugar substitutes follows, in which we will review the science behind the artificial sweeteners aspartame (NutraSweet) and sucralose (Splenda), and review FAR MORE NON-CANCER PRODUCING HEALTHIER sugar substitutes, with low glycemic indexes, such as STEVIA and the poly-alcohol ERYTHRITOL.

Today’s DocSpeak’s recommendations in concert with our FOOD IS FUEL formula will provide valuable insight and dietary guidance for not only Healthy listeners, but assist in the stabilization and even reversal of components of Metabolic Syndrome, and Type II Diabetic listeners .
