One was the New York Times Magazine article asking if sugar was toxic — the other a billboard on my way to work that told me that every time I drank a soda, it was like eating 16 packets of sugar! The billboard is part of a Multnomah County health push focused on sugar and obesity — in part because this generation of kids is not expected to live as long as their parents.
Are you aware of how much sugar you eat? Do you struggle with controlling how much sugar you or your kids eat? Do you suffer from diabetes, heart disease or obesity? What do you want to know about sugar?
