Recent headlines suggest that Americans are addicted to sugar. Researchers (not sited in the news headline, of course) argue that sugar is just as addicting as alcohol and drugs and propose it be regulated and/or taxed by the government. They believe that regulating sugar will ultimately halt the fattening of America and address childhood obesity. I find this an ineffective approach and frankly just more inappropriate ammunition for those that believe sugar is a toxic bio-hazard that any "pure" human being should avoid at all cost (keeping in mind that human beings would simply die without "sugar" aka carbohydrate if completely avoided). I am uncomfortable with the idea that sugar should be regulated by the government as much as I am uncomfortable with the idea that sugar is this "toxic substance". How do you feel about sugar and do you think it is an addictive and/or toxic substance that should be regulated by the government.
