Sugar is not only sweet, but also highly addicting. High-sugar diets lead the way to food addiction, obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. In today’s sugar-obsessed America, high-fructose corn syrup, a cheap sweetener derived from corn, is the superstar.
But are you aware of how much sugar, mostly in the form of fructose, the largest calorie source in the country today, goes into your food and common food products sold in supermarkets?
