These days there's a lot of hype about cutting down on sugar in your diet, and there's all those GDAs and advice about how to reduce your sugar intake, etc, but I can't really find much information about why sugar is bad for you. It seems, from what I've found online, that pretty much the only reasons to cut down on sugar are because of the calories, and because it rots your teeth (and I'm sure causes various other problems in the mouth). So assuming you're a healthy weight and take care of your teeth, is there actually any reason to cut down on sugar, or stick to any particular daily amount? I always thought too much sugar could cause diabetes, but I can't find any information to support that - does anyone know if there's any truth to it? Are there any other health dangers from consuming too much sugar?
