I am, but I'm fairly certain they'll be useless by the time I'm done with them. Donating my body to science would probably make more sense.

That's because they don't consume more calories than they need.

But you still haven't answered why fructose and glucose is worse than fructose and glucose.

So what? Death cap mushrooms are natural, does that make them healthier than a bag of crisps?

You just changed the argument. I already agreed that fruit is a healthier choice than pop and chocolate. But why is the sugar in one, in and of itself, worse than the other?

I'm saying sugar is sugar. But as a piece of fruit is lower in calories, and contains fiber and vitamins, then it is definitely better for you than fizzy drinks and chocolate.

It's still sugar. Trying to pass off one form of sugar as being inherently worse than another is absurd, which is the whole rational behind the 'real sugar' label.

Why is it vile?

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol and sugar alcohols are the substitutes that produce the laxative effect. And they still raise blood sugar, unlike aspartame.

Going by threads on here over the years, celebrating halloween and 'guising' seems to vary a lot by region, but I'm pretty sure its origins are Celtic pagan. The tradition was taken to the U.S. and...

Happy Birthday to your Mum!

My grandpa would have been 90 today, but he died almost three years ago on Halloween, of all days.
