You know it’s bad, but it’s everywhere. How bad could it really be? We associate sweet treats with parties and happy memories, it’s what we crave after a bad day, it’s how we express love to someone, it’s that afternoon pick-me-up. Sound about right?
Kudos to the sugar industry (and advertisers) for imbedding our need for sugar so deeply within our culture, that it’s taken about 70 years for us to wake up.
