Sugar Overload: Corporate Profits vs. Public Health (Enhanced DVD)
The average American consumes nearly half a cup of sugar per day--and most of it doesn't come from sweets. Instead it hides in unlikely places, from "healthy" foods like yogurt, to salad dressings, bread, and even meat products. It appears under many different names, and it's difficult to avoid.
The link between sugar and obesity is already clear, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Research is beginning to suggest that sugar is a poison just as toxic as nicotine and might be implicated in a number of other illnesses. Sugar is increasingly being linked to diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and even some forms of cancer. This DVD looks at just how much sugar we're really eating, where it comes from, and why we're being lied to about it.
