      Interesting example. Sugar is powerful, I’m certainly addicted. I attempt to use natural sugars such as maple syrup, but refined sugar is everywhere.

      In the context of the current diabetes epidemic, education about this topic is essential. Avoidance is nearly impossible for those with smaller food budgets, this is certainly impacting those below the poverty line very significantly.

      Great article, but also a good example of the importance of taking things with a grain of salt (cum grano salis).

      What one monkey can do, another can. We want people to think, “If this person learned something that made them happier, healthier or wealthier, then I can do it too.” That’s what we focus on: a practical philosophy of health, wealth and happiness.

      I disagree with this assertion, even though I appreciate most of this commentary. Just because another monkey can copy the first doesn’t mean that it is the correct method to pursue happiness for the second.

      Like his dad and David Duke, Derek saw in Trump’s rise a validation of their efforts to popularize white nationalism, though unlike them he was aghast. “Maybe Trump wasn’t in fact a white nationalist,” Don cheers, “but he sure was good at sounding like one.”

      Great article. For more on the development of the current racist buzzwords, explore Derek Black.
