Equivalent Sugar Content

This eye opening graphic shows the equivalent sugar in the Western diet.  Yikes!  I used to ingest massive amounts of Mountain Dew.  No wonder I trended towards borderline type II diabetes 2 years ago. 

I do have a banana a day, for the pectin.   I wish there was a way to get pectin without the accompanying sugar, but so far I've not found pectin in pill form.

Since most people in the US don't like to read, this graphic display is very illustrative and direct.  Welcome to a food-scape populated by Federally subsidized sugar, high fructose corn syrup,. and labeling obfuscation.
