Sugar

Well I used a tablespoon and a half of it today in my (very successful) first attempt at breadmaking, but I need to ensure that I don’t let sugar exceed 10% of my diet according to a new report published jointly by the WHO and the FAO.
This report has incensed the US sugar industry and a report earlier this week in The Guardian suggested that “Big Sugar” (the world’s new badboys it seems) were threatening to scupper the WHO by persuading America (lots of electoral money in sugar – particularly in places like Florida) to withdraw its annual $406m funding.
Of course this comes at precisely the time when the WHO is working hard to minimise the effects of SARS which is currently causing the world (and the mayor of Toronto) extreme consternation.
