Sugarproof: The Hidden Dangers of Sugar that are Putting Your Child’s Health at Risk and What You Can Do
“For the past several decades, the public has been given the distinct impression that the biggest enemy of a healthy diet is fat. But more and more research is showing that while excess fat, and especially the “wrong” kind of fat, is bad for us, perhaps the biggest dietary problem most people face nowadays is actually an excess of sugar.
In Sugarproof: The Hidden Dangers of Sugar that are Putting Your Child’s Health at Risk and What You Can Do, Michael Goran and Emily Ventura take the science we currently know about excess sugar consumption, especially during childhood, and break it down so anybody can understand it.
Sugar can cause weight gain in kids, definitely, but even kids who are active and appear to be healthy can be suffering from sugar-related health problems, such as fatty liver disease and prediabetes, and more and more studies are starting to indicate that sugar may be a major contributing factor to attention and activity problems.
Goran and Ventura offer plenty of practical advice, including several detox programs to help families reduce the amount of sugar in their diets as well as plenty of recipes that kids will love.”
