There has been a good public campaign to rid of of them, but these oils are in tons of baked goods. It's horrible because when you crave a cookie or something and the bakery case is calling, there is no labeling to tell you if the baked stuff has partially hydrogenated oils.

Here is something to think about. I was diagnosed with Pre-Type 2 Diabetes, three years ago. I have several genetic risk factors. Family history, Low Blood Sugar in my teens and twenties, mother and sibling with diabetes, then a pregnancy. Where as, I developed full blown Type 2.

Anyway, I noticed that when I drank or ate foods with no sugar added. It did not lower my blood sugar. So, instead I will eat a piece of regular candy and now, my blood sugar is the best it has been in three years. Real sugar, in moderation, is fine for me. Plus, of course, I eat healthy and walk on a daily basis.

You are right! I didn't even think of that. Thanks so much for the info!

Have you noticed whether cinnamon helps with your blood sugar level?

I'm not sure about cinnamon. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt. But, by eating a product made with real sugar. It satisfies my cravings and I eat much less of it. Than the synthetic stuff. I want to thank the poster from a few pages back. In regards to Kosher sodas. Jewish foods are healthier.

that was me, and no problem.

i'm honestly just curious though and do not mean any offense, but why do you type like this?

NYC King of the Food Police

NY seeks to ban sugary drinks from food stamp buys - Forbes.com


I'm a bit weary of the NYC's mayor's intrusion on personal choices and freedom.



Sugary drinks?
Why not a ban on high fructose corn syrup?

When it's the state's money you don't think they should have a say?

When the bank lends you money they often tell ask first what you're going to spend it on, should they not be allowed?













BTW, are you ever going come back to the GOP thread and post a link that shows where the Federal Government banned butter? Or are you just railing against a lie?

I'm excited to see that you support personal choices.

I'm all for personal choice but I guess I don't see the harm. I guess I don't really care.... There are already other programs like WIC where you can only get certain items.

I can't believe you can buy sugary stuff with food stamps in NY.
You should see the restrictions for food stamps here in Minnesota--pretty tight, and we produce a lot of sugar and HFCS for the processed food shit.

It seems to not matter though, standing behind people in the grocery store using their subsidy card, the cash always comes out for the soda, chips and cigarettes anyway.


Ban away NY.

Bloomie is one of these reformed smoker types, they often tend to become health fanatics.

Good guy otherwise.

I said that the federal regulations banned butter from being used in public school lunch programs. They can use magarine.

On our menus at school in small print at the bottom it states that federal
law prohibits carbonated drinks in the cafeteria.

No need to fear though, the kids are drinking milk and using salad dressings sweetened with HFTCS.


All of this is nonsense.

The major reason so many students are obese is lack of physical activity.
Recess has just about been eliminated in most schools and a lot of time in gym classes is spent just standing around.

Thirty years ago kids were a lot more active.
Drinking whole milk at school and sodas sweetened with cane sugar.
Very few were obese.

A lot of student's time is now spent in front of a TV or a computer screen.

Making the right choices in eating healthy is good, but I don't think the obesity problem can be solved by simply banning certain food items.


We all need to move more!




PepsiCo introduced Sierra Mist Natural a few weeks ago.
It's the first soda offered by a major soda company, since the early
1980s, that does not use HFTCS.

Can't disagree with the lack of activity. I think of the one "fat" kid in my elementary class growing up (1977-1986), and she wouldn't even register these days.

You can't count out some of the insulin studies about HFCS though. Is it the reason kids are fat? Kind of. Is it a bad idea to avoid it? Not at all.


We've had "Retro" Pepsi, Mt. Dew and Dr. Pepper around for about the last year. It's amazing how different and better it tastes. I don't really drink soda anymore, but it was nice to try the "old" stuff.
