May 10, 2012 | 
Feeling tired? Your lack of rest may be putting you at increased risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

New Diabetes-Friendly Sugar Reduces Absorption of Real Sugar
Nov 30, 2011 | 
A new diabetes-friendly sugar, proven to help reduce sugar absorption, will soon be added to popular breads and cereals. "Sugir" is real sugar that contains an all-natural, tasteless additive called Emulin. Emulin, a patented formulation of compounds found in fruits, prevents the body from absorbing about a third of ingested sugar.
