Sugar Rush

Low on fat, high on sugar

In the 1970s, there was a high obesity level. The government decided that fat was the cause of this so, companinies took the fat out of their products so that people would buy them. The only problem was, the products tasted terrible! So, instead of fat, companies put in sugar and advertised their products as fat free! The govenment thinks that sugar is making people obese. Scientists think that children should have two teaspoons of sugar a day yet one can of soft drink contains up to five times the amount! Major sugar companies say that sugar is not bad for you and is a source of cabohydrates. What do you think?
