Sugar

Do you like sugar? I do too- but moderation is key! It’s ok to have a bit of sweetness, but Americans have a tendency to go overboard.

I just watched this video  and this video about sugar, and I thought they are both consumer-friendly and could spark some interesting discussion. 

Of course, sugar itself is not the exclusive cause of the current obesity epidemic. This problem can be traced to a multitude of reasons, but the amount of sugar consumed in America today is startling. In 2010, per capita sugar consumption in the US was 66.0 pounds and, and corn sweetener was 64.5 pounds (ERS). That’s a whole lot of sweetness!
