Sugar Addicts – Overloaded America. Did you know that in 1812, the average American just like you consumed about 45 grams of sugar every five days? That happens to be the amount you’d find in a single 12 oz can of soda today. However, if you fast forward to 2012, the average American like you consumes about 765 grams of sugar every five days. In fact, that’s a 17-fold increase. However, most people are unaware of the serious dangers that arise from this drastic increase.
To put it in perspective, in the 1820’s the Americans consumed less than 20 pounds of sugar each year. Once again, let’s fast forward to 2012. Furthermore, we now consume over 130 pounds of sugar per year. Worried yet? In your life time you’ll eat about 3550 pounds of sugar. That adds up to about 1,767,900 skittles. To make matters worse, the American Heart Association recommends a maximum intake of 9.5 teaspoons of sugar per day. Meanwhile, the average adult eats about 22 teaspoons per day while the average child eats about 32 teaspoons per day. Lastly, Forbes reports that sugar is just as addictive as cocaine.
Sugar Causes Disease
Like cocaine, sugar can lead to a host of health problems. Unfortunately, these problems are quite serious. In fact they include obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, depression, fatigue, chronic pain, skin problems, hardened arteries, violent behavior, nervous tension, mental disorders, acne, and much much more. To make matters worse, high fructose corn syrup is the worst kind, and food manufacturers hide HFCS in your food.
