While I agree that sugar should not be regulated / taxed, I do think that modern society has gone overboard on sugar and it's bastardized cousins. I think it's probably more harmful than most people realize. And I say this as a person who *loves* sugar.

Please add salt to that list.

I think that's a persons choice though. The government doesn't need to go through my cupboards. Haha.

More education on food choices in the hospital when women have these babies. More education in school about healthier choices.

I do NOT remember this craziness when I was a kid.

That's true, I don't remember it either, but the food industry has changed dramatically in the last 40 years...and people in general are eating a lot more processed foods than ever before.

Honestly, I don't think the issues of sugar (and salt) have so much to do with an individuals kitchen, but everything to do with how food is processed and produced. Odds are, if a person cooks from scratch, their levels are ok. What's unreasonable to me is that a jar of spaghetti sauce can have more sugar than a can of soda.

I totally agree. It's all the hidden stuff.

Not all food regulation is bad. I'm all for regulations that require better disclosures regarding what's actually in the food we eat. Current American food regulations only require that ingredients be listed from greatest to least. You have to take an educated guess as to how much of any given ingredient is actually in a particular food product. Personally I'd like regulators to require that the specific percentage by weight of each ingredient be listed on the label.

Such regulation would help ME control what's in MY kitchen.

I'd agree with a sugar tax.

The article mentions creating a mininimum age for buying sugar and honestly, I think that idea is rediculous.

But taxing sugar? I believe that is perfectly fine.
