Review: That Sugar Film
How bad is sugar for you? Apparently, it is more dangerous than we think. The other night I watched That Sugar Film documentary on Amazon Prime. It was very entertaining. "In the vein of "Supersize Me", Damon Gameau becomes a human guinea-pig when he puts himself through a grueling 6 week diet consuming the equivalent of 40 teaspoons of sugar a day."
"Limit daily sugar to 6 tsps (25 g) for women, 9 tsps (38 g) for men. Yet, the average American consumes 17 teaspoons (71.14 grams) every day. That translates into about 57 pounds of added sugar consumed each year, per person. Children and teens are particularly at risk." (Sugar Science)
I love sugar. After watching this, I am going to be a bit more careful.
