Don’t let the sprinkles fool you…sugar is evil.
Having been a sugar addict all my life – now ten years sugar-free – I’ve always known that sugar is addictive, mind-altering, and just plain bad for you.

- Impair your defenses against infectious disease
- Interfere with absorption of calcium and magnesium
