It’s a good question isn’t it? Sugar is highly addictive, we love the taste and the pleasure of eating it BUT is it bad for us? And is it always bad?

It’s not surprising because as human beings we do have an innate liking for sugar, it’s just a natural taste preference we have. However sugar was not always so easily available to us.
