Addicted to Pleasure - Sugar
This extremely interesting (& dare I say, "entertaining"?) BBC Documentary tells the history of sugar.
Such phrases as "sweet tooth", "epidemic levels of diabetes & obesity" & even "addiction to sugar" fit well with what you will learn from this program.
I was quite surprised to hear it said that "sugar was virtually unknown just a few hundred years ago"!
The quite disconcerting part of sugar's history is what some would do to others to produce that "White Gold". Sadly, the like is happening today in the growing of sugar cane to feed an ever growing "need", or should that be "greed", for sugar. You make that call!
The video is just shy of being an hour in length; however, I considered it time well spent. I hope that you will consider it so, too!
