In 1801, historians estimate, each person consumed about 8.4 pounds of
sugar, which comes to less than one tablespoon or 2.2 teaspoons a day.
In 1909...typical Americans were consuming close to 85 pounds of caloric
sweeteners that year.
By 1999...Americans consumed a total of 151.4 pounds of added sweeteners
per person. Corn sweeteners alone, 85 pounds.
Can you believe that? Today was my day 1. Well, probably my 50th day 1. I figure every day I go without it helps and maybe someday I will stick to it forever. How about you, are you shocked by sugar...or those statistics?
