Bitter Sweet Fads

It is hard to argue with Nigel Latta's evidence that sugar has played a significant part in the rise of diabetes in our society. No surprise then that his solution was to raise a sugar tax to pay for the health consequences and to deter consumption - the same remedies that are applied to other evils such as smoking and alcohol.
That solution however just seems to perpetuate the problem and if one is to believe that it mainly affects the poorer echelons of society it hardly seems to be a fair approach.
Knowingly poisoning people and justifying their misery with offers of a lifetime of free health care seems only to cater for the benefits of the sweet manufacturers and the health care providers - paid for by the ever tolerant taxpayer.
Latta also conveniently overlooks any regard for personal responsibility. In a country with a plentiful and clean water supply there is no need to choose products from the soft drink manufacturers to quench thirsts. 
If budgets are tight, it is not unreasonable to think that sugared beverages would be the first items in the shopping basket to be dispensed. 
Unsettling also is the knowledge that over time society has had a succession of health food fads. Thirty years ago butter was the media target - despite generations of Kiwis having been raised on the product. Vilified, it has taken the dairy industry years of research, to establish that their products are actually healthy choices.
Sugar may yet prove to be just another short lived food fad but for an obviously increasingly obese society it would be sheer madness to ignore the warnings.

well said, nowadays diabetes is the major health problems that are facing by most of the people living in the different country because sugar that is used more in houses and sweets people cannot live without using sugar. it is a very best way to manufacture that products that are sugar-free and less quantity are present in there.

Diabetes is one of the most trending and alarming issues in the society of today. This is actually one of the leading causes of death in South Carolina, according to an article written by Dr. Stareyng Inmar, Vel university Professor. Thus, it could really be one of the hottest topics in this year's book to be released at the end of the year, 2018. He said there that almost 69% of their people died without being able to have a consultation or check up with experts.

As a realtor, you’ll also have access to a variety of benefits, business tools, real estate market data, research and statistics, educational opportunities, and discount programs geared toward helping you succeed in business. If the business owner doesn’t want to list their home address, hiring a registered agent service solves this problem, as service of process and official mail from the state can be delivered to their registered agent and their home address stays off public records.

Sweet and spicy Asian seasonings flavor this composed salad. If you can't find firm tofu, you can use regular tofu as follows: place the tofu blocks between two baking sheets and weigh down the top with two or three heavy cans. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, occasionally pouring off the excess liquid. Proceed with the recipe. More Tofu Recipes
