    Great post Laura!

    We're writing a small book on health, here's a quote:

    "From the point of man's evolution, an excessive amount of sugar has been in our diet for only a split second.
    Yes, we ate honey and we might have chewed on a sugar cane or eaten sugar beets and fruits, but only since the industrial revolution has the human race had an increasing amount of sugar in its diet.
    A big jump in sugar consumption from pre-industrial revolution to post industrial revolution.

    I believe it to be true that our bodies live in symbiosis with our bacteria - from a long-term perspective 'we and our bugs' have not been exposed to so much sugar.

    The mechanism of perceiving sweetness that helps horses to seek out the sweetest grasses and that has helped us to seek out the complex sugars and minerals that are in close proximity in natural foods, has been hijacked by the industrial revolution through its ability to produce sugar in large quantities.

    We have to reduce sugar and install the good bacteria in our guts, I don't think Mother Nature can adapt our bodies to the changed environment of the sugar onslaught in time for us to survive."
