An episode of Dr. Oz
Pointed to a cause…
Why “sugar free” brains
Saw largely weight gains,
Information that should give us pause.

I couldn’t stay for the whole show
For to work I had to go…
Artificial sweeteners
Like sugar with spurs,
Hypercharged sugar hunger so!

The signals sent to the brain
Of super sweetness the soda contained…
Blasts out insulin
And desire taking in,
Lots of sugar for all that insulin gain.

That signal with dire prediction
Is sent to the center for addiction…
Like drugs or alcohol
It can take over all
Intent to lose weight by conviction!

Resolution—-according to Oz,
Was to use less artificials for cause….
Substitute natural media
Like guava and stevia,
In home-made brews with less flaws!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
