This is an add for the soft drink company Zevia, who makes sugar-free soda. Although it's put out by a company in direct competition with Big Soda, I think there's some valuable information here.

This is part three of the series about sugar, how it is hidden from us, and how much added sugar is in almost all processed foods.

We've gotten to the point that we can't even trust food labels because of the lobbying done by the sugar industry to hide the truth. 

No matter what, we know that Americans are eating on average 130 pounds of sugar each year. That's around 82 grams a day, per person, which is more than four times the recommended amount. 

Always read your food labels, but even then you may not have all of the info. So, what do you do? The best thing to do is to eat real food - that stuff that doesn't have a label on it - like vegetables, fruits and quality meats. If you do have to buy something in a box or a jar, do your research and know what you are putting in your body.

Watch the video and check out the rest of the series for more info.
