According to a lot of the popular media we are all eating way too much sugar in our diets and it is responsible for a wide range of illnesses including heart disease and diabetes. At first glance, it seems that such claims are accurate. According to a 2009 report by the American Heart Association, between 2001 and 2004 the average American averaged 22 teaspoons of sugar daily, equal to 355 calories. In this same report, the AHA makes very specific recommendations about suggested daily sugar intake broken down by ages, sex, and level of daily activity. But not all sugar is created equal. Sugar is a natural substance in any number of foods such as vegetables, fruit, or whole grains and these sugars are not covered in the AHA's report. The "added sugars" the AHA is targeting, and the type that it seems everyone loves to hate are the refined sugars that show up in already fatty foods like ice cream, doughnuts, and the like. So just how bad is refined sugar? There are those that claim refined sugar is "addictive" much like a drug and there is research that points to humans having a very powerful preference for a sweet taste. The origin of this preference is not really known but it may have begun in pre-history to lead the proto humans of the time to sweet fruits as a natural source of calories and energy. Whether this preference for the sweetness of sugar rises to the level of a true addiction is still open to debate. Some animal studies indicate that it may be a possibility as researchers have noted changes in the animal's brains when they are given occasional access to sugar. Studies on humans have shown that certain individuals continue to use products containing refined sugar despite their understanding that such behaviors may cause negative results with their health. But, once again, is this evidence of addiction? After all, doing without refined sugar does not seem to trigger the same withdrawal symptoms associated with true habit forming drugs. The bottom line is that the jury is still undecided on whether we have a dependence on sugar that can be defined as an "addiction" but one thing is clear; For most of us, our diets do contain more sugar than is necessary and we can certainly benefit from a healthier diet.
