American processed food companies are systematically poisoning America for profits. Witness sugar. Sugar is added to everything. There are 13.5 grams of sugar in Enfamil Premium baby formula.They start early because they know sugar is addictive. If you can get babies and kids addicted to this stuff with no nutritive value, you'll have them for life. I invite anyone with any doubts about whether sugar is addictive to do a search on "sugar addiction" on Google Scholar. There are no guidelines for sugar consumption for babies, but the American Heart Association recommends a maximum of 9 teaspoons (36 grams, 150 calories) of added sugar for men and 6 teaspoons (25 grams, 100 calories) for women per day. If an adult woman's maximum recommended intake is 25 grams, what on earth are we doing feeding the stuff to babies? Interestingly, the average American consumes 17 teaspoons of sugar a day.

Think about it. The limit is 9 teaspons or 150 calories per day. 2 tablespoons of Jiff contain 2 grams of added sugar. Two slices of Sunbeam bread contain 3 grams of sugar. Add two tablespoons of Concord grape jelly and you get an additional 13 grams of sugar. Finally, wash it down with a can of Coke at 39 grams of sugar and you have just poisoned yourself....or your child. There is no safe consumption level for sugar sweetened beverages. In the nutrition science world, they are so notorious that the term is abbreviated to SSB. Try a Google Scholar search on "sugar sweetened beverage".

I started checking nutrition labels years ago to avoid added sugar. Finding any kind of packaged food without added sugar or salt is nearly impossible. As an aside, try doing a Google Scholar search on "salt addiction". To become sensitized to your sugar intake, try adding up the grams of added sugar in your foods. I was amazed.....
