The consumption of sugar per person, per year has increased immensely over the last fifty years.
Haven’t you noticed an increase of diabetes, high resting blood sugar, cholesterol, various cancer’s, obesity, autoimmune disease, ADHD and people complaining about feeling like crap over the last few years? Coincidence? I think not!
