July 15 – Death By Sugar

tfh sunriseA recent article in MacLean’s magazine entitled “death by sugar” revealed some startling information about that sweetener. The average Canadian eats nearly 100 pounds of sugar each year. Of 600,000 food items sold in the U.S. grocery stores, 80% have added sugar. Eating sugar stimulates the same parts of the brain as drugs or alcohol. Sugar is not only linked to obesity, heart disease and diabetes, but possibly Alzheimer’s disease as well. So what do we do with this information? We keep on eating sugar! While ignoring proven facts about our physical health can lead to disease, ignoring proven truth about our spiritual health can lead to disaster. Isaiah urges us to “Seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near….He will have mercy and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” God’s Word has all the answers to our questions. Have you read it?
