According to the US Department of Agriculture, the average American consumes approximately 47 pounds of cane sugar and 35 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup per year. That's over 80 pounds of sugar a year!
HOLY SUGAR CUBES!!!!
Studies have found that sugar is more addicting than cocaine? ¹ Food companies want you to buy their products over and over again. How do they do it? By sweetening it up! Over 70% of packaged and prepared foods contain added sugar. ???? Watch Fed UP movie trailer below to learn more about what the food industry does not want you to know...
This is the movie the food industry doesn't want you to see. FED UP blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and weight loss, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry, aided by the U.S. government, to mislead and confuse the American public, resulting in one of the largest health epidemics in history. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever.
Many food labels can be misleading. Did you know that even the so called healthy packaged foods are high in added sugars and some even state "No Added Sugars" like Naked brand drinks or children's juice drinks when in fact fruit juice is another name for sugar.
4 grams of sugar = 1 teaspoon of sugar
So what are the risks of consuming added sugars? Here are just a few:
- Digestive Issues
