Sugar addicts

Posted:

We're a society obsessed with sugar.

But most people consume far too much sugar every day, whether they mean to or not.

The trick is to read the ingredient list, look for the added sugars and try to avoid them. Not just white sugar but honey, molasses and high fructose corn syrup.

Experts say drinking just one sweetened tea or energy drink is the equivalent to a double shot of straight sugar. That's the amount most people should have over two days.
