Hit Me With Some Sugar

I know it is small to see...originally I found this on FaceBook, I have it on my page if you happen to know me.Here is their own link, giving credit where credit is due. Let me sum up...we eat way too much sugar and brain scans suggest that the brain is as addicted to it as it would be cocaine. That's pretty scary.
Daily suggested amount of sugar: 9.5 teaspoons or less...what adults consume: 22 teaspoons a day...and children? 32!!!! 500 calories a day in sugar is average. That's an easy way to cut calories, except we are addicted to it like a drug.
All I can say is READ LABELS! Be aware!
