The reason Halloween frightens me is because it's a sanctioned and heavily promoted National Sugar Overload Day. (That's what I call it.)
Tonight, during and after trick-or-treating throughout their neighborhoods, millions of kids -- and their parents -- will be stuffing their faces with candies galore.
But candies don't just grab our attention on this one night alone.
Tomorrow and in the coming days, both youngsters and kids will be gorging on candies.
Worse still, Halloween kicks off an entire two-month Season of Mindless Sugar Gorging.
This is utterly frightening, because when you overdose on candies and other sweets, you’re speeding towards obesity, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes—and an early death.
Today, I'd planned to present an exciting special Gab with the Gurus Halloween show. My guests were High Voltage (Kathie Dolgin), author of The Sugar Savvy Solution, and Barry Friedman, founder of 30 Days Sugarfree.
Alas, I had to cancel the Gab with the Gurus Show since I'm sick with a nasty cold/flu and need my rest. Instead, I invite you to watch this video with me, thanks to Chris Morrow for iCNN.
