Well, it's no surprise Americans eat way too much sugar. But according to a new study, that sweet tooth is killing us.
"It found adults who got at least 25 percent of their daily calories from added sugar were almost three times more likely to die of heart problems than those who consumed less than 10 percent." (Via WCBS)
Research published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine found over 70 percent of adults in the U.S. consume 15 percent of their daily calories from added sugars in foods and drinks.
