    Illicit Sex – Many Faces Of “The Sugar Daddy”

    in Religion

    Shakespeare said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” and the same applies to the term Sugar Daddy.  No matter the term the meaning is still the same.  Traditionally this is a rich usually middle-aged or old man who bestows expensive gifts on a young woman in return for companionship and or sexual favors.  Today, this relationship can be found in other combinations.  Not just a rich old man and a young woman.  The Sugar relationship can be found as a rich older woman and a young man.  In fact, you name the gender combinations and you’ll be able to find a “Sugar Relationship” in the mix somewhere.


    These relationships appear to be mutually beneficial.  Money exchanged for romance and companionship on some level.  But does the benefit carry true substance or is it merely superficial?  Do these relationships cause harm that most people don’t perceive?  In other words what’s so bad about the Sugar Daddy?


    We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thu 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am.  All times are Eastern Standard Time.

    The Sugar Show: Sugar and Our Sprouts with Ben Briggs

    in Family

    Ben Briggs joins Shirley on the continuation of The Sugar Show  episodes to talk about sugar and its relationship and affect on children. The idea of sugar in children is particularly complex because sugar offeres some energy but not a lot else by way of nutrients and minerals essential for healthy growth and development for our little sprouts. If excessively consummed, the energy is not burned in the body and stored as fat. 


    Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. Understanding the habits we form early on and our relationship with food, can better frame our youth's caloric imbalances- taking in lots of calories and expending few calories- and genetic, behavioral and environmental factors affected.

    in Family

    Welcome to Cross Link Radio's The Sugar Show episodes. Last season we broke the week down into Business, Inflammation, Wellness, Biofilm, and Leisure. This season we only have one category, Sugar! Every Wednesday we’ll explore sugars from the plant to the toilet. Shirley has found experts in all kinds of sugars, some you’ve heard of and some you haven’t. Tune in Wednesdays as we explore if sugar is really all bad.


    I'll be talking to physicians, researchers, and industry people about specific sugars. Dr. John Peldyak will co-host on occasion with his vast knowledge of behind the sugar knowledge illuminating points that we'd never think about, sugar for erasing wrinkles? Sugar as insecticide? We're not kidding.


    We think you'll look forward to the insights uncovered and you'll find that life can still be oh so sweet.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why Sugar Is Making You Fat and Killing You

    in Fitness

    Sugar not only makes you fat, it may be killing you.


    Consuming too much added sugar — in regular soda, cakes, cookies and candy — increases your risk of death from heart disease, according to a new study, the largest of its type.


    "The risk of cardiovascular disease death increases exponentially as you increase your consumption of added sugar," says the study's lead author, Quanhe Yang, a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


    On average, adults in the USA in 2010 consumed about 15% of their daily calories — about 300 calories a day, based on a 2,000-calorie diet — from added sugars. That's far more than the American Heart Association's recommendation that women consume no more than 100 calories a day from added sugars, or about 6 teaspoons of sugar; and men consume no more than 150 calories a day, or about 9 teaspoons. The World Health Organization recommends consuming less than 10% of calories from added sugars.


    One can of regular soda contains about 140 calories of added sugar. That's about 7% of the daily calories of someone eating 2,000 calories a day, Yang says.
