If you saw a package of beet sugar in the store, would you be inclined to purchase it thinking, “That sounds natural.”?  Take a look at this witty video about processed sugar.  The lady does a great impersonation of Julia Child, which made me laugh, but also reminded me that things are not always as they appear.

Sugar is taking a toll on our health and has a hand in the obesity epidemic in America.  In 2009, more than 50 percent of all Americans consumed one-half pound of sugar per day.  That translated to a whopping 180 pounds of sugar per year!  Look for all-natural sweeteners, and research before you decide to purchase your next sweetener.
