The Sugar Solution by JJ Virgin

JJVirginIn this video, JJ Virgin introduces a new way to rate sugar based on its impact on the body, expanding on her concept that the body isn’t a bank account, it’s a chemistry lab, and food sends powerful chemical messages.

Sugar is finally getting the attention it deserves. Following in the footsteps of the American Heart Association, the World Health Organization (WHO) recently released new guidelines about sugar.

This video is an excellent staff and patient education tool to answer their sugar EKG copyquestions about sugar. For instance, recent studies have not been kind to sugar or artificial sweeteners. One found both sugar-sweetened beverages and artificially sweetened beverages increased risk of type-2 diabetes. Several New York Times bestsellers, including Fat Chance by Dr. Robert Lustig and Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss, also tackle the sugar issue.  Unfortunately, this attention creates massive confusion among your patients, such as, “Isn’t honey healthy, since it’s natural?”, “What about sucralose? After all, it is calorie free.”, and “Juice is good for me, isn’t it?” Virgin answers these and many other questions in the video.
