They want to know: "are they telling me I can't have a teaspoon of sugar m my mom- ing coffee or tea?" Well, no. that is not what we are trying to make people pay attention to. It is the sodas and commercially prepared sweetened drinks that need to be cut back on by all Americans; if they wish to be healthy and to help figtit childhood obesity. Since 1977 soda has become the most popular beverage in America, surpassing water, milk and even beer! Other sweetened beverages have joined the list, like Gatorade, Snapple Teas, Ari- zona Teas, Minute Maid Lemon- ade and many more. It is not just sugar, as in cane sugar, which has increased in the American diet over the past 30 years but SUGAR(S) of all kinds. Sugar(s) include: high fructose corn syrup (now called corn sugar); honey; molasses: and new ones are be- If you were making a beverage at home, would you add this many teaspoons of sugar?

We now consume 20% more sugar(s) per person per year than we did 30 years ago, and this adds up to 200- 300 calories each day. While these sugar(s) have been added to many foods, "Soft drinks are the number-one source of added 'sugars in Americans' diet," ac- cording to Rachel Johnson, Pro- fessor of Nutrition at the Univer- sity of Vermont who chaired the American Heart A'ssociation panel on sugar. These extra calories do noth- ing for our health or our food needs. A study done at Purdue University showed that people given 450 calories extra per day from a solid food, like jelly beans, cut back on other solid food con- sumption: but those given 450 calories from liquids did not cut back on solid-food consumption. The conclu- sion here is that the calo- ries we get from drinking liquids just adds calories to our daily intake; and added calories usually means added weight. That's why many people who can't fig- ure out why they are gain- ing weight, stating they don't "eat" that much. or don't "'eat sweets" need to look to their liquid intake for the extra calories..And this goes for our children too, when it comes to large glasses of juice, as well as sodas Comparing fruit juice to a real piece of fruit, we can see that a medium sized apple might contain 60 calories, in-' cludes 3 grams of fiber and helps you to feel full; while 1 cup (8 oz.) of apple juice would contain 110 calories, no fiber, and does not fill you (or your child) up. These extra calories can mean more than just increased weight We know that increased weight can lead to: obesity, dia- betes and heart disease (eyen in the young.) Further, some studies have shown a connection be- tween beverages sweetened with fructose and increased triglycer- ides (a part of cholesterol linked to heart disease); increased belly fat (linked to heart disease); and the tendency to overeat. Ways not to drink yourself fat. * Drink plenty of water * Choose fat-free or 1% milk * Switch from juice to whole fruit * Skip sports drinks and "energy" drinks * Know thb calories in coffee and tea drinks and shakes LHS students share their bullying experiences. LHS students I00Jay vital role against bullying Courtesy submission Last week, Lordsburg High School seniors spoke to Central Elementary students about bul- lying. They did not need to be told that bullying is an issue when it has been experienced firsthand. According to Mr. Ramirez, Elementary School Guidance Counselor, "Our goal is preven- tion and intervention. ]t is im- portant for our high school stu- dents to be positive role models. Who better to share their own bullying experiences with our youth?" Discussions covered toler- ance, anger, and self-esteem is- sues.
