We’re really digging the new HBO comedy-news show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. On last night’s Last Week.. John reported on America’s sugar addiction. The average American ingests 75-pounds of sugar per year. So its not surprising to learn that the human brain responds to sugar similar to the way it responds to cocaine.
The FDA is currently trying to revamp nutrition labels to more accurately describe to the consumer the exact amount of sugar in a food. Of course, they’re being met with resistance from food companies. But Oliver has our backs! ..or better yet: BRAINS!
