5 Bad Tips About Sugar

5 bad tips about sugar (header)

Look like sugar has become public enemy #1.

Some of the newfound concerns are completely justified, but some are not. Actually, it’s become one of these black-or-white craze, where one website tells you to cut all sugar from your diet, whereas another one claims it’s harmless.

And to tell the truth, I’m kind of pissed off about everything we’ve learned regarding the industry in the last few years, so I agree that something has to change.

(And as it happens, I’m especially irritated by the whole juicing fad, which is totally related to this, although most people don’t realize it.)

Obviously, a single comic strip can’t cover the whole subject, but I’ve selected 5 common beliefs that, I think, come from a poor understanding of the core issues we’re facing here.

Nope, you won’t have to go sugar-free.

But yep, you may have to rethink how you eat quite a bit.

Many thanks to Catherine Lefebvre, dietitian, for inspiring and reviewing this comic!

Influenza is coming

flu-vaccine-header-600

In early 2015, medias reported that the flu vaccine had had an efficacy of 0%. Scary stuff.

And it was true : the flu vaccine, for that particular year, was ineffective.

Because of news like that, people wonder every year if it’s worth getting a flu shot. It’s a fair question.

But if you’re like me, to really understand what’s going on, you need explanations that involve swordfights, weird monsters and people getting thrown off castle walls.

So, there you go.
