Eating too much sugar is bad for your health!

You are more likely to have heart or blood vessel disease from sugar than if you get your sweetness from natural foods, such as fruit.

A new study demonstrated that:

If 10% of your calories come from added sugar, you have a 30% risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke

If 25% of your calories come from added sugar, you have a 50% chance of dying from a heart attack or stroke

        Women: up to 6 teaspoons (tsp) a day

        Men: up to 9 teaspoons (tsp) a day
