Be careful with SICKNESS EXPERTS!
Today on the radio a “health expert”, a medical doctor, said it is perfectly fine for all kids to have 2 sodas per day.
I think most of you reading this blog know this is terrible advice!
There is nothing beneficial about soda. Do any of us need more sugar? At best, they are empty calories. If it is regular soda, it contains high fructose corn syrup and there are dozens of studies condemning this ingredient. It is one of the contributors to Type II Diabetes among other concerns. What about diet soda? Yikes we have already discussed the dangers of this.
So my concern is not just this incredibly ignorant statement, but rather that the media would choose someone who, most likely, has had no courses in nutrition and who is certainly not keeping up with current research. How is this person a “health expert”? Usually they are really a “sickness expert”. When I read or listen to “health experts” often I want to scream. The statements they issue are most often pointing us toward illness rather than wellness.
So before following this type of advice either do your own homework or check in with us. All our doctors have had many courses in nutrition and wellness and love keeping up with the current research. Remember we don’t benefit in any way by making you or keeping you sick but the “sickness experts” might.
