Chrysanthemum tea is good... but not the canned or packet versions because they contain excessive sugar.



Even this small 250 ml packet has too much sugar -- 20.3 g to be exact, which is nearly 5 teaspoons of sugar. If you made your own drink (say, coffee), you would never add 5 teaspoons of sugar to just 250 ml of liquid.

Excessive sugar intake leads directly to obesity/overweight, and puts you on track to diabetes. Singapore is already seeing a sharp rise in diabetes incidence.

Peter Tan When one is young one tend to be stupid but as one grows older one should become wiser. I loved soft drinks when I was young during Lunar new year and in those old days most of these soft drinks came in breakable glass bottles before plastic bottles overtook them later.My favourite is cherry,orange,sarsi and soda.It takes real shiok without knowing it is poison.I love dipping rolls of love letters and kueh balu into a cup of soft drink every Chinese new year.

But that soon came to an end when I grow older and wiser knowing all such soft drinks commercially sold whether in bottles,cans or tetra packs are the same they contain many spoonful of sugar in all of them and that is the cause of diabetes type 2 if drank regularly and I never buy a single bottle every new year for the past decade.When I go visiting I will ask for plain water never mind if they think I am weird to drink plain water on new year I do what I think is right for me not to please others or bother what they have to say.All soft drinks contain high spoonfuls of sugar in them whether it is diet coke,Yeo packet drinks, F &N soft drinks, root beer all will land one in the hospital if not careful

I know of a neighbor in the eighties who was barely 30 years and he already suffered from diabetes yet the shop uncle below my block told me he will buy a can every day after work and one day the poor guy had to come up to my block when the customer kicked the bucket due to diabetes complication and he need to give a white gold for his funeral.Some people are very stubborn or ignorant.

Sharing a real-life snippet from a post on Facebook on dementia, which is a sad affliction.



Did you know that excessive sugar consumption is a risk factor for dementia?

There are many articles on this. Just Google. One of them is from Harvard: Above-normal blood sugar linked to dementia

Excessive sugar consumption contributes greatly to obesity, which is a risk factor not just for Type 2 diabetes but also dementia, even cancer, etc.

The World Obesity Federation has named and shamed the worlds’ largest countries – and Burma has made a surprise appearance on the list.

The first in a list of the top five countries experiencing a rapid rise in obesity, Burma has the unenviable accolade of a 29.3 percent increase in adult obesity between 2010–14, beating out Uganda (26.7 percent), Cambodia (26.1 percent), Lao (26 percent) and Burundi (24.1).

Dr Tim Lobstein told The Guardian that the dramatic increase in developing countries that experience a high degree of malnourishment can be caused by the sugary substitutes used to top up calories in children.
