Can Maple Syrup Kill Cancer?
Gosh, I sure hope so, as I use it to sweeten my daily latte.
And I don’t use much–maybe a tablespoon. Just enough to take the edge off the espresso’s bitterness.
Basically, I use local, unheated honey and maple syrup to sweeten anything, and I’ve found as my diet has included more healthy, unsaturated fats, I am not drawn to sweets or baked goods. It’s an interesting switchover…
Probably the only sugar that comes into the house is the sugar I use to make syrup for the hummingbirds. I recently bought a new 5-lb. bag, only to find half of one buried among the glass jars in the pantry. It was hard as a rock from sitting unused.
Here’s a blurb from this article:
New research suggests that maple syrup, despite being a concentrated source of “sugar,” possesses significant anti-cancer properties…
Note the term “suggests.” But one can hope…
Maple syrup does have an interesting mineral load, but like any sweetner, should not be overused.
