Sugar Will Kill You.

Do you want Type II diabetes?  Eat a Snickers.  How about heart disease?  Grab a Twix.  What about cancer?  Then munch on a Reese’s.

Today is Halloween.  And, across America individuals will be starving their brain and body of nutrients with the consumption of processed, refined sugar.  It’s actually no different than any other day in America but that’s for another post.

Two years ago Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to tell their kids that they had eaten all of their Halloween candy and to film the resulting effects.  The video is listed above.

At CrossFit Roots, we present to you a new challenge!  We dare the parents of CrossFit Roots to tell their kids tonight, when they are in costume and ready to go out trick-or-treating, that you have decided that sugar is evil and that it will kill them and the they can’t go trick-or-treating.  Then send us your video.  If it makes the blog, we’ll give you a Roots t-shirt!

Have a great day and remember, sugar will kill you.
