Everything you always wanted to know about sugar . . . but were afraid to ask

Photo by Nick Depree 

This information is not new, it's not a secret. Why are we in denial? And why do we consume so much of this poison. Perhaps like oil we are addicted. Perhaps like drugs we should seek out the pushers and dealers who addicted us - the beverage companies, the cereal companies, candy manufacturers, fast food chains, grocery stores are all guilty.

Happy Birthday Thessa!

Facebook Party Out Of Control
A teenage girl in Germany who forgot to mark her birthday invitation as private on Facebook fled her own party when more than 1,500 guests showed up and around 100 police officers, some on horses, were needed to keep the crowd under control
Take heed auto, candy, alcohol, beverage, condom, fashion, greeting card, cosmetic and cell phone marketers . . .

There's finally something that gets consumers off their butts. Within the week branded parties will be popping up all over the world driven by Facebook and the need to achieve brand engagement.
