The dangers of sweet stuff

One teaspoon of sugar contains 16 calories. The average person eats 22 teaspoons of sugar daily, which can add hundreds of calories without any nutritional value. 

  • Sugar raises and then drops your blood glucose levels, leaving you fatigued, forgetful and irritable.
  • Extra sugar increases your risk of obesity and may set you up for diabetes.
  • The more added sugar a person takes in, the higher the risk of dying of heart disease.
