Our sweet teeth say that if a little is good, more is better!

Continuing the theme from last week’s blog, this time I talk about two reasons that the more sweets we eat, the more we want to eat. I also cover the different name sugar goes by and sugar substitutes. 


  • Local elections are usually in early May. Too often these local elections have a very low voter turnout…but they are important! For example, we have recently seen the impact School Board members can have. Also, remember that candidates for national office almost always started out being elected to local positions. Maybe it would be more efficient if we improved the pipeline  earlier?

    How can we choose which candidates to vote for? Well, there are a hug number of silly reasons like picking the candidate who has the most street signs, one that looks like your uncle Fred, one with great hair or who says what you want to hear about one particular issue (you may later learn he or she is on the opposite side of most other issues that you care about). It really doesn’t take a lot of research to make a better pick. Newspapers all have a bias. If you tend to agree with yours, see who they recommend. (Online if you don’t subscribe.)  The League of Women Voters organization performs a valuable service on their websites. They ask candidates topical questions and post their answers online. Then you can see the persons’ qualifications, opinions, goals, and if they seem to have common sense. (One who fails to even answer the questions loses my vote.)

  • Anxiety about the potential for a nuclear event seems to be increasing as weapons proliferate and more radical crackpots come into power. I don’t want to spread alarm or certainly not give the impression that I am in any way okay with the use of nuclear weapons. We must elect leaders smart enough to shut down the saber rattling. (A post-nuclear world may not be livable…especially if too few people know what to do.)  I want to maybe reduce stress a bit by providing the right information so that we don’t feel like such sitting ducks. Jane Orient, MD discussed the issue during our March 15, 2023 program. Her organization has added resources for preparedness and response:
