“That Sugar Film” is the new “Super Size Me”

[excerpt] “I had no soft drink, chocolate, ice cream or confectionery,” Gameau told Yahoo. “All the sugars that I was eating were found in perceived healthy foods, so low-fat yogurts, and muesli bars, and cereals, and fruit juices, sports drinks … these kind of things that often parents would give their kids thinking they’re doing the right thing.”

After 60 days this man was beginning to develop fatty liver disease. Read the whole story here.

Healthy Summer Eating with Food Allergies

by Nancy Popkin

For the 15 million Americans who live with life threatening food allergies, there is no vacation—summer or otherwise—from the vigilance required to stay safe. Every season has its own challenges.

Our 90 publishers in communities around the country (plus Puerto Rico), thousands of advertisers and current monthly readership of nearly 4 million are celebrating the magazine’s 20 years in publication (more on page 16).
