The average American consumes an astounding 2-3 pounds of sugar each week, which is not surprising. Considering that highly refined sugars in the form of sucrose (table sugar), dextrose (corn sugar), and high-fructose corn sugar are being processed into so many foods such as bread, breakfast cereal, mayonnaise, peanut butter, ketchup, spaghetti sauce, and a plethora of microwave meals.
In the last 20 years, we have increased sugar consumption in the US 26 pounds to 135 lbs. of sugar per person per year! Prior to the turn of this century (1887-1890), the average consumption was only 5 lbs. per person per year! Cardiovascular disease and cancer was virtually unknown in the early 1900’s.
