The average adult living in the U.S. today consumes about 22 teaspoons of added sugar every single day; that amount includes 'hidden' sugar
contents in food that may be marketed as "healthy", even though they are not.
Consuming lots of added or hidden sugar has been found to be associated with problems including diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, and cognitive disorders, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Sugar is now even linked to cancer and many other conditions tied to impaired immune function.
To avoid the intake of the excess of sugar, use natural sweeteners like raw honey or stevia in moderation, watch your sugar intake at breakfast, and rethink your snacks opting for hard-boiled eggs or freshly made juice or smoothies without sugar and consider making your own sauces.
