Here’s the not-so-sweet truth. We are killings ourselves by consuming truckloads of hidden sugar.

Sugar is the New Fat Despite 40 years of Americans being brainwashed into thinking that fat is bad, it turns out it’s sugar, not fat, that makes you sick and overweight.

The facts are in, the science is beyond question. Sugar in all its forms is the root cause of our obesity epidemic and most of the chronic disease sucking the life out of our citizens and our economy – and, increasingly, the rest of the world. You name it, it’s caused by sugar: heart disease, cancer, dementia, type 2 diabetes, depression, and even acne, infertility and impotence.

The average American consumes about 152 pounds of sugar a year. That’s roughly 22 teaspoons every day for every person in America. And our kids consume about 34 teaspoons every day – that’s more than two 20-ounce sodas – making nearly one in four teenagers pre-diabetic or diabetic.

Flour is even worse than sugarWe consume about 146 pounds of flour a year. Think about it. That’s about one pound of sugar and flour combined every day for every man, woman and child in America. And flour raises blood sugar even more than table sugar. Even whole-wheat flour.

Trouble with Topical Progesterone & Testing

On March 12, 2014, in Uncategorized, by Helene Leonetti MD

By Dr. David Zava for the Townsend Letter
Historically, topical progesterone delivery has been much maligned because, regardless of dose, it fails to raise serum progesterone to the levels known to counter estrogen-activated cell proliferation. Oddly, the results of serum progesterone testing, suggesting poor progesterone absorption, have trumped multiple studies showing the clinical benefits of topical progesterone used at physiological doses. Nearly 10 years ago, I wrote an article in the Townsend Letter explaining why topical progesterone is more beneficial than the serum levels might suggest.1 I based this on saliva progesterone testing and published clinical studies, which showed that progesterone applied to the skin results in a dramatic increase in salivary progesterone, as well as tissues, without showing much increase in serum. Since that time, studies have continued to show that topical progesterone does absorb through the skin extremely efficiently, contrary to low venipuncture serum levels, and distributes systemically to other tissues, where it has biological effects. With the advent of capillary blood spot testing for steroid hormones in 2007, we also discovered, serendipitously, that topically delivered progesterone can be found in much higher amounts in capillary blood than in venipuncture serum, adding further support to the concept that topically delivered progesterone enters tissues other than the salivary gland and increases in capillary blood to a level high enough to affect estrogen-activated cell proliferation. In this report I briefly review studies relevant to topical progesterone delivery and include a recent publication inMenopause reporting on the distribution of progesterone in different body fluids following topical progesterone treatment.
