Les Rocailles de Jouvaud

Tasted coffee and vanilla flavored today.  So delicious and so bad for you... all that sugar.  A former student of mine posted this on Facebook today:

I have just finished reading a book called "Fat Chance: The Bitter Truth About Sugar" by Robert Lustig. Very interesting book going into great biochemical detail about the importance of keeping sugar consumption at a minimum and how bad it is for our health, even linked with diseases of various kinds. As it's added to practically every processed food out there it's impossible to avoid. And of course we're all addicted to it and love it, making it all the harder to reduce.

Anyone else conflicted about this?

Sugar is poison. Whenever I overindulge, I get zits on my chin, my muffin top expands and I am quite irritable. However, sugar is love, my brain craves it when it works overtime and my heart skips a beat when my taste buds get to enjoy some sweetness. That being said, sugar is poison and oh so difficult to resist.
