Today, almost all processed foods have some amount of added sugar in them. As many people rely on quick snacks, they fail to realize that they contain high amounts of sugar. Studies have time and again reiterated on the point that the added sugar intake can lead to various medical conditions such as obesity, diabetics, and heart-related diseases along with poor dental health.

Sugar affects the brain reward system and leads to addictive behavior if left unattended. It is also interesting to know that sugar triggers the release of dopamine in the same area of the brain that responds to addictive drugs as well. This is the reason why sugar cravings increase to a level where your body gets prone to various health problems. An average American consumes around 100 to 120 grams of sugar which are about 30 teaspoons of sugar, way above the recommended maximum by experts. (Harvard T.H. Chan, School of Public Health)
