Worker Bees’ Daily Bites
Mark’s Daily Apple is 100% sugar-free. Are you?
Beats biopsies !
You may recall last week’s little exploration  of refreshing beverages overflowing with so many calories, even Bactrian camels would be concerned. Hey, a small, fiber-rich protein shake is one thing. But these sherbet-and-sugar-water pajama parties masquerading as “healthy” fruit smoothies are just the latest health scam .
The fact that smoothie slurping has doubled is a good indicator that people want to be healthy. We dig that. Unfortunately, the typical smoothie is really just a glorified milkshake. Know the difference. And for the love of tempeh, remember to keep an eye on the seedlings! They love those sports drinks and smoothies, but no child needs that much sugar.
Big Pharma likes to see only the most favorable results  published? And this is news? All right, that’s it – we feel an award coming on…
Similar exposes have recently targeted the dairy industry (ooh, milk  made me lose two whole pounds!), soft drink giants (soda  is a good way to get type 2 diabetes, actually) and weight loss scams (hoodia , anyone?).
It’s kind of like the news out today that black soybeans  are the new miracle food. Sure, beans can be healthy, but let’s not jump all over black soybean tortillas just yet. Focus on fresh, whole, and unprocessed foods, and you’ll be doing great – really!
Bottom line: always look for information on who funded the study before you buy into the product.
Flu Cliches Bug Us
Feel guilty because you didn’t get a flu shot this year? A super-vaccine is in the works . (This is one of those things that sounds great initially. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt…)
We tend to support abstemious flu shottage unless you’ve got a weakened, tired or toddler immune system on your hands. If you can avoid yet another drug, you’re probably better off. You’re still stuck with words like abstemious, though.
