Is Sugar Toxic - Part 2.

 

If you read the New York Times this month, a controversial article entitled “Is Sugar Toxic?” by Gary Taubes may have caught your eye. Whether it delighted or enraged you, perhaps you can agree that at the very least it has ignited a thought-provoking dialogue in our society about the consumption of sugar. So, I present to you some food for thought. No really, here’s a recipe.
