Woho!!! New heroe discovered! - this time Down Under.

Go David Gillespie!

Australia on board as well! Congrats!

Excellent note on how we should not be feeding (hidden) sugars to our kids.

And these are his books:

And here some of his (unsurprising) observations:

Sugar was once such a rare resource that nature decided we didn’t need an off-switch – in other words, we can keep eating sugar without feeling full.
  • In the space of 150 years, we have gone from eating no added sugar to more than a kilogram a week.
  • You would need to run 7km every day of your life just to not put on weight as a result of eating thatmuch sugar.
  • Two decades ago 1 in 14 adult Australians were obese; that figure is now 1 in 5.
  • The ‘natural’ sugar in one glass of unsweetened fruit juice per day for a year is enough to add just over 2.5kg your waistline.
  • The more sugar we eat, the more we want. Food manufacturers exploit our sugar addiction by lacing it through ‘non-sweet’ products, such as bread, sauces, soups and cereals.
