Candy

Candy may taste good, but it is poison. The reason is because candy is sugar and sugar triggers an insulin spike, which packs fat into the body,—but more importantly, insulin drives fat into the interior of artery walls. This recent finding is the most frightening news about insulin and, by inference, about sugar. What it means is that insulin is the chief cause of heart attack and stroke. Insulin (and by extrapolation, sugar) is the number one cause of death in the world.
