  1. Typical garbage Vox article. Half the facts have noncommittal riders on them.

    The article fails to mention that sugar just isn’t as impactful as salt. You need more sugar to do the same as salt so gram weights don’t exactly tell the whole story.

    Also, yes, so many “processed” foods (love that term, no two people can draw the line in the same place on what is and isn’t) have sugar added… because sweetness helps balance out a food system and brings out and promotes qualities of different ingredients. This is why your enchilada sauce has some sugar in it.

    Sugar isn’t a problem. Self control is. The food companies aren’t sneaking into your house and pouring Pepsi down your throat while you sleep.
