This article includes both interesting news and shocking news. First, the most shocking to me is that the “National Research Council recommends that added sugar should not account for more than 25 percent of a person’s diet.” And that this doesn’t include sugars from fruits, etc. Wow, that’s a lot of sugar!! And secondly, but not surprising in my opinion, is that sugar causes more health detriment than just obesity and diabetes–it may also reduce fertility and life-span. For our health, it is best to avoid ALL processed sugar.
