Thanks for some clear information regarding sugar - most of the nutritional data I have come acrossed on the web say no more than 60 grams sugar daily and I am like??? is that added sugar, natural sugar included what??, , It is hard to keep to that when a large apple can be 15g off the bat - - - am I really doomed to never enjoy a dessert again?

Thanks for clarifying. I am working hard to eliminate processed foods when I can, but they are so convenient.

It's about time that added and natural sugar be listed separately. One is not healthy (added) and the other does not contribute to illness at the same rate (natural).

Dessert = fruit.
I have not eaten added sugar since 2004. It is awkward in our society but I never feel deprived. It is the best health choice a person can make. Forget the 8 teaspoons a day. Make it zero teaspoons a day.

I found your header to misleading; I thought the article would discuss findings that show the link between too much sugar and heart health, which clearly does not occur. The information presented was interesting, but is only a bit of supporting information for what to do now that you know about the dangerous links between sugar and heart health.
