Is there a direct link between sugar intake and the rise of obesity?
In 1900, the average yearly sugar intake was 11 pounds per person. It’s now 96 pounds per person in North America, and as high as 140 pounds per person in the U.S. In contrast, it’s only 38 pounds per person per year in Asia. Follow the sugar trail to the exploding U.S. childhood obesity epidemic which has grown tenfold in 40 years from 1975 to 2016!
Research published in The Lancet documents the disturbing growth of child obesity, which portends a rise in chronic diseases such as diabetes as well as heart disease and other complications. In addition, statistics recently released by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics show overall U.S. obesity rates since Ronald Reagan won the presidency have almost tripled!
“For the first time, we’re seeing people who are both obese and malnourished at the same time thanks to the empty calories provided by sugar which has become a staple of the Standard American Diet,” says board certified internist Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, author of The Complete Guide to Beating Sugar Addiction.

How’s your energy?
Autumn Warren talks chakras and ways to reset our chakras when they fall out of balance. The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through.
