Abstract:

With the average American consuming about 22 teaspoons of sugar every day, it's no wonder obesity and other health problems are on the rise. But here's what's really frightening: eighty percent of the sugar we consume isn't in candy or desserts - it's hidden in foods like "healthy" breakfast cereals, yogurts, and microwave meals. This film shows how consumers are being misled about the quantity and form of sugar in their diets, and how the health effects of sugar are being downplayed as the sugar lobby continues to go on the offensive. According to some doctors, sugar is not just an empty calorie, it's a poison as dangerous as nicotine and a leading cause of a number of serious illnesses. As well as the epidemic in child obesity, sugar has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and many common cancers. Once again, the truth is a bitter pill.
