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.
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!
