Sugar Without the Icing – Carolyn Dean MD ND

In this fascinating and compelling book, Carolyn Dean MD ND creates a salient solution for the problems facing our nation as a result of the excessive consumption of processed sugars and slurpy carbohydrate treats and makes a compelling call to action for the medical community to “first do no harm” by adjusting dietary requirements that will benefit their patients including:

  1. Educating the public about the dangers of consuming too much sugar would result in far less obesity; less ineffective gastric bypass surgery; and less weight loss drugs with their fatal heart attack side effects (Fen-Phen).
  2. An improvement in the obesity rates resulting in reduced percentage of metabolic syndrome, less lipid imbalance, and therefore less heart disease.
  3. Absolve dietary fat of its alleged role as a culprit in heart disease.
  4. Avoid the epidemic of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and obesity by offering a nutritional speciality in medicine. There is a Bariatrics subspecialty that deals with obesity. Instead of preventing the problem, they allow it to manifest and then use drugs and surgery to treat it.
  5. Alleviate the burden of supplementation by using proper nutrition. Sugar creates a magnesium deficit because the liver needs twenty-eight atoms of magnesium to process one molecule of glucose. Fructose requires fifty-six atoms of magnesium.
  6. Limit our intake of sugar to the WHO recommendation of 5% of our daily calories, we would not suffer the autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s or dozens of other inflammatory conditions that plague the Western world.

  1. Ann Bernecker. I tried to order at your discounted pricing after the webinar but was not able to do that as instructed. Did other people have that issue or was it just my lack of knowledge
