What inspired you when writing Added Sugars, the Slow Poison?      

During the process of writing the book Added sugars the slow poison, I happened to listen many videos related to added sugars and their shocking & harmful effects on various parts & major functions of our body. I was very specifically inspired by the videos of 3 doctors.

They are:
1.      Sugar the bitter truth – by Dr. Robert Lustig
2.      Sugar toxicity- by Dr. Eric berg


I would strongly suggest all my readers to go through the videos of these 3 doctors Dr.Robert Lustig, Dr.Eric berg, Dr.Aseem Malhotra. They have helped me a lot to understand many interesting scientific facts about these sugars, which we even as educated adults are totally unaware of.

Due to attractive marketing strategies adopted by the  food industry, we are unable to see the large amounts of added sugars we are consuming every day.

 we have overlooked the dangers of the added sugars and spoiled the health of our generation, especially our children. Time has come to enlighten ourselves with sufficient knowledge about these added sugars and protect our families and society.

When did you decide to become a writer?
I was a voracious reader right from childhood, read children's books, animated series, short stories, detective stories, humorous and witty short stories. Reading inspired me a lot to write, express and share my own personal experiences. I found happiness in writing and sharing my words, thoughts & my creative world to my readers.
It was when my English teachers, my friends in my school and college days appreciated and encouraged my short stories, I realized that I should become a writer.
When writing Added Sugars, the Slow Poison did anything stand out as particularly challenging
Yes! I did face some challenges while writing 2nd chapter. The 2nd chapter deals with scientific explanation about how Glucose and Fructose effect our liver and pancreas.
A beginner  would find it little difficult to follow these scientific terms. Therefore, I put my best effort with block diagrams. I have also quoted and recommended my readers to watch related videos so that they can easily visualize and grasp the concept.

What do you like to do when not writing?
Apart from writing, I love to spend my free time in gardening, cooking delicious food, listening to good music. I love Hibiscus and Roses, so I spend a lot of time taking care of these plants.
