Watch Susan Spencer's "CBS News Sunday Morning" feature on sugar
Last week I told you about my friend and fellow blogger Connie Bennett's opportunity to be featured on national television talking about the dangers of consuming sugar. Well, the time has arrived for that segment to be aired THIS SUNDAY morning, June 17, 2007 on CBS-TV! WOO HOO!
CBS News Sunday Morning boasts a robust 5 MILLION viewers each week and their 8-minute piece about sugar is set to be the lead story for the show. Bennett, author of the fabulous book about the negative impact of sugar called SUGAR SHOCK, is one of the featured experts.
"This is heartening that a major national TV show such as CBS News Sunday Morning is delving into this extremely important subject and telling people the truth about sugar," Bennett said. "Americans need to learn that they're probably getting at least one-quarter to one-third of their calories from refined sugar and processed carbs."
She hopes her appearance on this program will bring awareness and education to a nation of people who probably have no idea how damaging sugar is to their bodies.
"And people should know that consuming so many nutrient-deprived foods and drinks could lead to a host of health-damaging problems, including depression, failing memory, fatigue, headaches, heart disease, cancer, hypoglycemia, type 2 diabetes and premature aging," Bennett added.
The CBS News Sunday Morning segment about sugar is reported on by the talented, Emmy Award-winning journalist Susan Spencer and produced by the thorough Jason Sacca.
There will be several other sugar experts appearing on the broadcast, including a representative from the Sugar Association. I guess this caused them to stop watching my blog so closely for a few minutes! Get ready for some spin from them!
