[Added] Sugar not only makes you fat, it may make you sick

Exerpts from the CNN article:

“Added sugars, according to most experts, are far more harmful to our bodies than naturally-occurring sugars.  We’re talking about the sugars used in processed or prepared foods like sugar-sweetened beverages, grain-based desserts, fruit drinks, dairy desserts, candy, ready-to-eat cereal and yeast breads. Your fruits and (natural) fruit juices are safe.”

“Now sugar is considered an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, as well as many other chronic diseases…”

“Participants in the study who consumed approximately 17 to 21% of their calories from added sugar had a 38% higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, compared with those who consumed approximately 8% of calories from added sugar, the study authors concluded.”

“Before you reach for that next sugary treat, think long and hard about the long-term cost to your health.”
