Here are some Facts:

  • Adult women consume 335 more calories than just 10 years ago.
  • Sucrose is Fructose linked to Glucose.
  • All Calories are NOT equal
  • 100% of the calories from Fructose pass into the liver compared to 20% for Glucose.
  • The Liver is the only organ in our body that can process Fructose.
  • 30% of all Fructose consumed is converted into fat.  Glucose is almost none.
  • Fructose is (by definition) a toxin to your system.

For any parent who has handed their child a 20 ounce bottle of Gatorade, this is a must watch.  You need to understand that it is the equivalent of 5 servings for a child and contains 50% sucrose.
