Sugar Damages Our Health

The damage to our health and well-being from excess added sugar in our diets is becoming recognized by the medical community. The American Heart Association recommends that women limit added sugar to 25 grams and men 37 grams a day.  The 2015 Dietary Guideline Advisory Committee recommends that we keep added sugar to 10% of daily calories and the World Health Organization recommends limiting added sugars to 10% of daily calories stating that reducing it to 5% would result in further benefits.
