Sugar avoidance when you're sick and honey health benefit

I've heard from my friend that sugar is a very bad idea (even fructose) - argument he has given was that sugar, when you're sick, is a bad idea and "you should avoid it like a plague". He mentioned that a lot of a research that's out there that advocate sugar usage for health reasons was sponsored by American bodies associated with sugar production. I would argue, that maybe in a broader context some moderate sugar might be okay (like kiwi has a lot of vitamin in it). Also with honey I'm curious as well, since I've heard about its anti-bacterial properties, but I've heard that its effects get destroyed by stomach acid, so I don't know what to believe in anymore.

fasting and exercise

Is it ok to have a pre-workout when I am fasting? How long can I wait to get protein, collagen, and creatinine after a workout? I exercise at 6:00 AM, my last meal was at 5 pm the night before, and I would like to fast until 10 am. I am confused.

Can long term cold exposure can be bad and stress too much the body?

Hello, First, I am a huge fan of your content and hope you will continue deliver this precious information without being censor. Regarding cold exposure, I have heard some people telling that long term cold exposure (specifically very cold exposure around 30 Fahrenheit) is not that good for the body and stresses it at a point that the body under constant thermic stress will respond and get older as a consequence. What are your thoughts on this? I’ve personally haven’t found any research on this neither much literature. Thank you
