Filed under: Television — @ June 16, 2007

I’m pleased to give you an update about the sugar story that CBS News Sunday Morning is airing this Sunday, June 17, at 9 am EST and various times in other markets.

Previously, I wrote here on the SUGAR SHOCK! Blog about my exciting day with the CBS crew, when they filmed me, as well as some other sugar addicts I’d gathered. Now, here’s a press release that I just wrote and am distributing.

Spread the word about this exciting sugar story that will air on CBS News Sunday Morning!


NEW YORK–Connie Bennett, author of SUGAR SHOCK!, is one of several experts appearing this Sunday on the national show, CBS News Sunday Morning, in an approximately 8-minute segment about sugar. It is the lead story, barring any breaking news.

“This is heartening that a major national TV show such as CBS News Sunday Morning is delving into this extremely important subject and telling people the truth about sugar,” says Bennett, a former sugar addict, journalist and certified holistic health counselor.

“Americans need to learn that they’re probably getting at least one-quarter to one-third of their calories from refined sugar and processed carbs. And they should know that consuming so many nutrient-deprived foods and drinks could lead to a host of health-damaging problems, including depression, failing memory, fatigue, headaches, heart disease, sexual dysfunction, cancer, hypoglycemia, type 2 diabetes and premature aging,” adds Bennett, whose book SUGAR SHOCK! has been endorsed by a number of renowned health experts, including frequent “Oprah” guest Dr. Mehmet Oz. Bestselling author Nicholas Perricone, M.D. wrote the foreword; and Stephen T. Sinatra is the SUGAR SHOCK! contributing author.
