It's time to wake up and realize that sugar is plaguing our society. It is EVERYWHERE and in EVERYTHING! Whether we knowingly bake sweet treats out of love, hobby or addiction, reach for it in the form of a 'Happy Hour' sugary cocktails, binge on Ben and Jerry's, or are simply unaware that sugar is lurking in our foods where we least expect it (salad dressings, ketchups, soups, salsas, cereals, crackers, chips). Sugar is EVERYWHERE, it is fueling our society and many of us are blind to the depths of our addictions and sugar related health implications. We find every reason to justify sugar. We have become a society that celebrates with it. We use it to self- medicate, and sooth our emotions. The newest reports have claimed that the average American consumer consumes just over 150 pounds of sugar each year! That is INSANE!
