As kids we are all told to not eat too much (or any) candy and to eat our vegetables.
Many think this may just simply be because there isn’t any real nutritional value to sugar, but in reality sugar is also toxic for your body! Take a look at some of these facts:
- High fructose corn syrup = sugar = both equally bad
- Sugar is linked to obesity, hypertension, heart disease, type II diabetes
- The American lifestyle is killing us, 75% of disease is preventable
- American’s consume 130 lbs of sugar per year
What do you think? Will you lessen your sugar intake?
