Sugar is getting a lot of the blame these days for its role in obesity and other illness from heart disease to cancer.
We’ve been eating sugar for a long time, so, what’s changed?
According to the USDA, Americans now consume approximately 156 pounds of sugar, per person, per year--much of it hidden in the foods we eat, even when those foods don’t taste sweet.
Doctors say that willpower alone may not be enough to counter our love for sugar. Yeah, you heard right in that we eat about 156 pounds, per person, per year!!!
