This week: sugars, the value of touch and pediatric anestehsiology

Choosing among natural sugars and artificial sweeteners can be daunting.

Fortunately, much of the information you need about sweeteners is on the food’s label, allowing you to see the calories, carbohydrates and other nutritional information, says Maureen Franklin, a registered dietitian nutritionist at Upstate Medical University.

Franklin also explains differences among the various sweeteners and how they can affect individuals differently, as well as the key factors in all dietary decisions.

Also this week: what touch means to patients undergoing chemotherapy, plus providing anesthesiology to children.
