About Sugar

Different Types of Sugar

We Eat More Than We Think!

The only thing good about sugar is…it tastes good! After that, it’s all downhill… it’s high in calories, provides only a brief increase in energy, and greatly increases the growth of bacteria and tooth decay potential.

When Eskimos lived a sugar-free diet, their teeth were perfect. No cavities! Once whalers and traders introduced them to a Western diet, tooth decay skyrocketed.

So, while you may not think that you’re eating too much in your diet, beware of hidden sources and other sweet substitutes.
