Grab a cookie before you sit down to read, but you may find yourself switching to strawberry as you learn about the natural role of, and misuses of, sugar. Beginning with an exploration of sugar and how it is processed by the body, readers will get a lesson in agriculture regarding how sugar is grown. You also learn that there are natural foods that contain sugar, but added sugars and snack foods contribute to dental and diabetic disorders that accompany the fanatical consumption of sugar in modern diets. In the end, it’s important you remember that you can enjoy sugar healthily and in moderation.
