In case you’re wondering…
The American Heart Association’s recommended daily allowance of sugar:
•3 teaspoons of added sugar for children
•6 teaspoons of added sugar for women
•9 teaspoons of added sugar for men
If you consider a can of coke or glass of orange juice can contain around nine teaspoons, then take into account all the hidden sugars in our food… That’s above and beyond : O
JUST SO YOU KNOW
The average American consumes about 152 pounds of sugar a year. That’s roughly 22 teaspoons every day for every person in America. To make matters worse, kids consume about 34 teaspoons every day — that’s more than two 20-ounce sodas — making nearly one in four teenagers pre-diabetic or diabetic.
THE REAL SKINNY
Even though the American Heart Association has a recommended daily allowance, ” the REAL SKINNY is that just a spoonful of sugar will set you in a tailwind spiral downward into the abyss of addiction of the worst kind and beyond.”jb
It’s no wonder America’s health is doomed and health care makes a fortune.
