    Description: 

    Sugar's potential for abuse, coupled with its toxicity and pervasiveness in the western diet, make it a primary culprit of the obesity epidemic. Sugar changes metabolism, raises blood pressure, critically alters the signaling of hormones and causes significant damage to the liver. This presentation will make the case for sugar to be controlled like alcohol and tobacco to protect public health.
