Crazy Sugar Highs

The really good news this week is that the Sugar Levy has begun! On Monday 5th December it was agreed that next April there will be a tax imposed on high sugar drinks. Advertising on kids unhealthy food was curbed too. For all the info have a look at this: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/12/07/kids-rotted-sugary-drinks-sugar-tax-logical-solution/ But as always the key is making sure you're on top of it, as the food industry is always trying to throw sugar at us. If you missed it on the news the other day, I thought it was my job to show you what Action On Sugar found out when they had a look at a load of high street cakes and muffins to see how high the levels of sugar were. And guess what?? The results were insane. At the top of the table, by a mile, was The Pret A Manger Lemon Drizzle Cake had a staggering 68g of sugar!! Or 18 teaspoons! Which to put it in perspective is more than 7 Kirspy Kreme Doughnuts have in them. And more than a child should have in 4 days. Quickly followed by a Starbucks carrot cake and a blueberry muffin - all those seemingly innocent numbers that have fruit in the title are just doing nobody any favours. So please beware, the food industry is out there to suck you in, not to make you healthy! Please read the labels. It's a minefield out there, and when you think you're having the healthy carrot cake or lemony option, you're often actually just being fed an even more humongous dose of the white stuff. Please have a read for all the details on the press release here: http://schoolfoodmatters.org/sites/default/files/Cakes%20-%20Press%20Release%20FINAL.pdf#overlay-context=

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
