After reading this extensive list of names for sugar, I began to read the ingredients labels on some of the foods in my pantry. I actually found as many as 4 of these in the same product! Is it any wonder that we have a nation of obese and overweight people! Not to mention so many with the terrible disease, type 2 diabetes! Perhaps our medical and health organizations should take a closer look at the food manufacturing industry and find out why it is necessary to fill our food supply with such excessive amounts of sugar! Could it have any anything to do with the addictive nature of sugar?
