Abstract

Recent research at the University of California San Francisco shows that added sugars are responsible for chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus. Growing scientific evidence shows that too much added sugar, over time, is linked to diabetes, heart disease and liver disease. Overconsumption of added sugar is linked to type 2 diabetes. Our current food environment in which the vast majority of packaged foods have added sugar makes it too easy to have too much.
