We all know that too much sugar is bad for our waistline and teeth, but many of us are unaware that sugar can affect our brain function, leading to brain fog and forgetfulness.
Over the last 25 years, Americans have doubled their intake of sugar. The average adult exceeds the recommended sugar intake by 19 teaspoons a day. That equates to approximately thirteen 5-lb bags of excess sugar a year. Overweight individuals are not the only ones at risk of developing ongoing health issues. According to a study published in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), healthy eaters are also consuming an overload of sugar and are at risk of developing health issues.
