    Does the below type of info matter to you? (within the same video I've time stamped key ~30 second - 2minute segments for those that don't want to watch the whole show)

    Based on the types of foods, including sugar loaded cereals so many of you here seem to eat, here is your weeks worth of sugar in your diet if you are in the same ballpark as this dude

    ...245 teaspoons of sugar/wk.

    Charts overlaying various associated diseased with Sugar consumption




    Link between sugar and various brain dementia's? This crazy rat suggests so. Diabetes of the brain??




    Eat what you want and as much as you crave and yet still lose weight. Yup, it happened.





    Is sugar leading to us changing our evolutionary shape over time?





    So my question is WHY and do you or would you accept more gov't intervention in this area such as what they did with tobacco? And if not, why not?

    Just one soda a day equals 50lbs of sugar a year.

    I generally oppose government intrusion into peoples lives, but take a look around you. America, and much of the rest of the world, is becoming a heaving mass of fat sweating diabetic hippos. It's disgusting and dangerous. Time to treat sugar like the addictive poison that it is.

    The over abundance of sugar in the Modern Diet is sickening quite literally

    Add to that, the costs of dealing with the increasing health problems is being socialized and being forced to be paid, in part, by all.

    I eat a ton of sugar but I work out a ton too, I bet if I cut the carbs I'd be shredded instead of yoked

    I fully admit that I have a sugar addiction, I try to control it, but I don't do nearly enough.

    Sugar and alcohol are the only things I actively limit in my life. Both lead to very bad things... :p

    I keep it out of the house. If I only eat it outside the home, it keeps it in check pretty effectively. The truly destructive sugar eating is always at home for me. Usually while watching TV or late at night. Often both, simultaneously. :p

    Sugar shockers are fun facts and all, but I think sugar is way over demonized by some people and groups

    My sugar intake is extremely minimal. My fat intake is another story.

    I never thought about how much sugar there is in soda until I saw what was left in a can of Mountain Dew one of my co-workers opened, took a sip and left it on a shelf. When I was throwing it away a couple of weeks later, it was almost half full of sugary syrup that was too thick to pour out.

    Sugar and non complex carbs are poison.

    I remember being pretty addicted to sodas. Had to rewire my brain pretty bad.

    Your body converts everything you eat into sugar anyways so what difference does it make?
