Having been 'exposed' to "Sweet Poison" by David Gillespie,I am a little scathing of Fructose. Your Fruits in natural juice now have a quite, quite different dimension for me.
It would appear that the "natural Juice" might not be the friend it appears to be and more a 5th columnist.

The mention of Milo and large picture of the tin makes your newsletter lose credibility for me. It leaves a sour, not sweet, taste in my mouth. In my opinion you can't be objective when you're financially beholden to these guys.

Hi Louella,
The Milo pic is rather on the large side isn't it. As editor, I should have reduced it before posting this issue. However, in the context of a situation like the Queensland floods, a can of Milo might be handy to have in the cupboard. Here's what we said about emergency snacks:
'When faced with an emergency that isolates us, we need nutrient-dense snacks to keep us going and also to provide us with the sustained energy we need for the extra physical activity these situations often require – you may have to clamber onto the roof to be winched to safety by helicopter. Snacks can be just as important as meals in situations like this. You need foods that will keep safely at room temperature for prolonged periods (so you can store them away) and you can eat with minimum preparation (clean, safe water may be scarce, and you may have no gas or electricity).'
We hope you stay with us -- we have some great stories coming up in March. Rest assured, we aren't sponsored by or beholden to ANY company.
