The Sugar Debate


I noticed on Netflix that there is a new documentary available to watch called “Sugar Coated”.

It explores how the food industry has put sugar into our food supply over the years. This 90 minute film tracks the Sugar Association from the early seventies to now.

Politics aside, I was surprised to find out doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease.

The American Heart Association recommends us limiting our sugar intake 6 to 9 teaspoons, per day. According to this documentary teenagers alone are consuming 30 – 41 teaspoons of sugar per day.

If you have a few minutes take a look at this documentary especially if you have kids.

If you need to know what the different names that sugar has on food labels, you can go to our link called the “Sweet Names of Sugar”.

More food for thought on the great debate.
