Mark Hyman’s “Ten Rules To Eat Safely For Life And What To Remove From Your Kitchen”1 has been an absolute gold mine of debunking material. Never have I found so much hypocrisy in one article. Nearly every paragraph Hyman writes demonizes an ingredient that he then pushes in his online store.
We’ve already looked at Hyman simultaneously vilifying and selling xylitol and miracle-cure foods in his “ten rules” article. But he’s not done yet. Not by a long shot. Tell us how you feel about sugar derived from cane, Dr. Hyman:
“If sugar (by any name, including organic cane juice, honey, agave, maple syrup, cane syrup, or molasses) is on the label, throw it out.” 1 (emphasis mine)
(Sigh). Off we go to Mark Hyman’s online store. How about a tasty nutritional shake?2
Organic. Cane. Sugar.
But… but… Hyman wrote:
“If sugar (by any name, including organic cane juice, honey, agave, maple syrup, cane syrup, or molasses) is on the label, throw it out.” 1
