If we continue to allow the taste of our food to be homogenized through the use of added sugar, we will not only rob ourselves and future generations of a vast and diverse culinary tradition, but an integral part of our human experience.
Sweeteners condition our taste buds to want more sweet. Consuming excessive amounts of sugar triggers your brain and body to want sugar most of the time. If your blood sugar dips down, your body gets a signal to eat more sugar. It's almost as if your system has been hijacked.
