I hate low glycemic fruits like berries, apples, pears. I love mangoes, Sapote mamey, pinapple, papayas, bananas, prunes, figs and dates and other high glycemic fruits. Are high glycemic fruits bad for metabolism, insulin or blood sugar?

Unlikely to be a problem with sweet potatoes. Aluminum leaches out with acid, and sweet potatoes aren't acidic. Contact is another factor. If you're baking whole sweet potatoes in the skin, wrapping with aluminum foil and not eating the skin, the... (more)

I think it's more of an issue of hyper palatability - as with most processed foods. You shouldn't, naturally, find umami (glutamate in the whey), sweet, salty, and fatty all in the same morsel.
