It’s nice that it’s finally being acknowledged that the increase in sugar consumption has happened over the last 30 years!! Actually, it’s been increasing for much longer than that.

Protein is hot. Now officially the next wonder ingredient to be oversold and marketed by corporate food giants that focus on making ordinary products for the maddening crowd. You can even find these products at the local grocery store next to the Honey Bunches and Fruity Pebbles.
