Sugar Warnings Getting Through


Americans may be getting the message about cutting down on added sugars, a focus of the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans. A new Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,883 US adults reports that 58% say they tried to limit sugar in their diets in the past 30 days. While there’s no previous such poll to compare to, that number does exceed those trying to cut down on calories, sodium, fats, cholesterol or carbohydrates. Another sign: Google Trends data shows that online searches for “added sugars” in January were more popular than at any time since data began in 2004.
