Is there a safe moderate intake level of toxic sugar?

10-14-12: According to the American Heart Association and Dr. Lustig, there is. That amount is:

Women: 6 teaspons (100 kcals) per day
Men: 9 teaspons (150 kcals) per day

You can read more about this and how to reduce your sugar intake by checking out the AHA's website. This position statement was first published in AHA's journal, Circulation, 2009, vol. 120.

A black and white guideline as to how much added refined sugar you can have per day, for those who have to have their daily sugar fix.

Now if someone could create a natural and safe pill we could take to block this toxic sugar from getting into our bodies...turns out there is! But that's for another post....;-)
