ENCORE: The Pervasive Harmful Effects of Sugar, Part 1
August 30, 2022
Dr. Michael Goran, professor of pediatrics at the USC Keck School of Medicine, has devoted his academic career to the study of childhood obesity and diabetes. In “Sugarproof: The Hidden Dangers of Sugar that are Putting Your Child's Health at Risk and What You Can Do,” he and his co-author, nutritionist Dr. Emily Ventura, explore the pervasive harmful effects of sugar, and detail a practical program for effecting change. Excess dietary sugar contributes not just to obesity, but also increased risk for a lifetime of degenerative diseases, as well as behavioral problems. And now sugar is added to 70% of processed foods, often deceptively labeled as “natural”, or concealed under a variety of innocent-sounding rubrics. High fructose corn syrup has especially harmful properties. Non-caloric sugar substitutes also come into the cross-hairs as stoking the appetite and having indeterminate metabolic effects. Is regulation of the food industry the answer? Labeling laws? Restrictions on advertising to children? Sugar and soft drink taxes? Outright bans like now underway in Mexico? Tobacco-style litigation vs. the sugar industry? Dr. Goran argues for a more consumer-oriented approach, with self-regulation the goal for kids. Click HERE for part 2.

How to Maximize the Health Benefits of Chocolate, Part 1
June 9, 2022
The flavanols in chocolate have been shown to improve heart health, promote brain function and healthy blood sugar levels, and support full-body performance. But even popular dark chocolate brands may not deliver; it’s all about bean selection and proper processing. Alan Frost, Founder of Flava Naturals, details performance chocolate products that deliver 500-900mg of cocoa flavanols, with calorie counts as low as 35 per serving. That’s 5 to 9 times the cocoa flavanols of an average dark chocolate bar. The secret is starting with some of the highest flavanol cocoa beans globally and processing them naturally and at lower temperatures to preserve the flavanols. Click HERE for part 2.
