As more studies are conducted on the impact of added sugar, more is known – and it’s not a pretty picture. The most recent study found that  “high fructose intake, in the form of added sugar, independently associates with higher BP [blood pressure] levels among US adults without a history of hypertension.”

Higher fructose intake corresponded to “to 2.5 sugary soft drinks each day” or the equivalent, according to the study – an easy attainable figure, unfortunately, considering the amount of sugary soft drinks Americans consume on a daily basis.

None of the three great teachers wrote a book because each was a true searcher after truth and knew that the search is a lifelong pursuit.
