We at Sip & Savor thought we would share an interesting blog post about our nation’s obesity challenge  which was recently published on Huffington Post. We’ve blogged about this author before - Dr. James Rippe, a cardiologist who graduated from Harvard Medical School and performed post-graduate training at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Rippe states in the column, “The fact is, there is not one ingredient to blame for the obesity epidemic. Demonizing one sweetener does not give consumers the information they need to make informed dietary decisions.”  He further states that “credible research has shown there are multiple contributing factors to obesity, the most significant being that Americans are consuming more calories than they are burning off.”
