How Sugar affects your Immune System

Lisa Says: Kudos to Amy Frostick for a fabulous time at the first annual Blue Moon Wicked 10K. Then on to more fun as we all ventured to Halloween/Fall Festival Parties ! It struck me however as I sat in my dirndl passing out glowstick bracelets (QUITE the hit actually) as an alternative to refined sugar (even the Obamas passed out healthy alternatives yesterday), that I needed to remind everyone of the clinical data surrounding how refined sugar suppresses the immune system. I googled that and got over 1.6 MILLION hits. Right when we are going into ‘cold and flu season’ and need to boost our natural defenses. http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4568832_does-sugar-affect-immune-system.html

but NO WORRIES ! consider rationing the sweets (tell the kids it makes it LAST longer) and focus on nurturing the immune system
