I'm pleased to let you know that CBS News Sunday Morning is airing a story about sugar this Sunday, June 17, at 9 am EST and various times in other markets. Previously, I wrote on my 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 about this exciting sugar story that will air on CBS News Sunday Morning. Spread the word.

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, 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.

The CBS News Sunday Morning segment about sugar is reported by the talented, Emmy Award-winning journalist Susan Spencer and produced by the thorough Jason Sacca.

Other experts or self-described "sugar addicts" interviewed for the segment include:

* Children's obesity expert David Ludwig, M.D., Ph.D., author of Ending the Food Fight.

* Sugar historian Sidney W. Mintz, author of Sweetness and Power: The Place of Sugar in Modern History.

* Melanie Miller, vice president of public relations for the Sugar Association.

* Six self-described current or former "sugar addicts" — Bhaswati Bhattacharya, MD.; Deborah Buell, H.H.C.; Sheila Drew; Christy Goldfeder, C.H.H.C.; Moe M. Leary, H.H.C.; and Donna Sonkin, C.H.H.C.
