Sugar Is Powerful
It's tasty. It's delectable. It's enticing. It's tempting. It's hard to stay away from.
Sugar is in everything we eat. It's even in the stuff that's not sweet. It's in our food. It's in our drinks. It's in our gum. It's in sauces. It's in seasonings. It's hard to get away from sugar. And companies don't want you to get away from sugar, which is why they put it in everything. They know that the more you consume sugar, the more likely you are to keep eating things with sugar ($$$) since it is so addicting.
