BOOM


Monday, January 07, 2013

I'm super-busy today, so you just get a quick fact that blows. my. freaking. mind.

This is from a research proposal I'm editing at work:

"The most recent data from NHANES on 2 to 18 year olds show that nearly 40% of total energy consumed is in the form of added sugar..."

FORTY PERCENT IS STRAIGHT SUGAR.

Not something with actual nutritional value but ADDED SUGAR.

More info, summarized by the CDC, is here: www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/da
tabriefs/db71.htm


My mind. is. blown.

    So much food has added sugar these days. It's not just "junk food." Things like tomato sauce, juices, yogurt, frozen meals, frozen berries, etc.
