Life is sweet, even without sugar, according to Texas City health coach Oralia Acosta. Her May 14 presentation at Rosenberg Library, “Sugar: Pain or Pleasure?” delves into the science and sensation of sweetness.
“Sugar definitely brings us pleasure. We’re born in a state of absolute bliss, and tasting sugar takes us back to that state, just for a fleeting moment,” Acosta explains. “but, it can also be the source of inflammation, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and foggy brain. My talk is designed to give people information so they can choose.”
