Sugar is one of the main sources of fuel for bacteria and disease aside from the fact that it is the main contributor to obesity and all its side effects.

FACT: You cannot reduce fat/obesity by exercise alone, but you can by dietary intake – you have to watch what you eat to stay healthy.  Exercise keeps you fit and strong, nutrition keeps the balance of fuel right.

All of this information is out there to make us think – opinions are from the human mind, but so is research.

Data and facts are interesting – but take a look at who is researching and who sponsors it and what is in it for them?  Selling the product normally!

A story from an engineering friend – at University asked to prove a point with some data … great said the tutor – now with the same data prove the opposite. Data and facts – we have to make our own mind up.
