Dr. Oz gets huge applause for warning millions of Americans that eating too much sugar — which most Americans do — puts you at major risk for High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Liver Disease and Insulin Resistance.
I'm so excited to have Dr. Oz calling sugar "# 1 on his most wanted list."
I've already watched last week's segment three times — thank, you TiVo.
Talk about amazing timing! Just as I was writing about the groundbreaking research from Dr. Miriam Vos at Emory University in my next book, Beyond Sugar Shock, the -themed episode airs, and he interviews her!
You can watch The Dr. Oz episode here. (Make sure to see all three parts.)
Please note that I think that the consumption figures Dr. Oz cites are a little low. He says that the average American consumes 22 teaspoons of sugar a day.
While that may be the average, many people take in as many as 48 to 50 tsp. a day.
I also encourage you to watch this video with from Dr. Vos, where she discusses her groundbreaking research, which finds that excess sugar increases your risk for heart disease.
