Richard Blackmore: 4 grams per teaspoon

Tamás Szalmási: Or you know... you could learn and use the metric system like most of the world.

Lena Willems: developer border corporate hay toe norm legislative under debt basis.

TJiaamgeos PFriaedlos: "... and no one understands the metric system..."
Yeah, except for the rest of the world.

PragmaticSkink: First of all, Hi to all of you watching in 2018 or later :D
7:32 That mascot is most likely the child of the squirrel from ice age and crash bandicoot......

nepalnt2121: maybe im splitting hairs, but nobody freebases heroin before they inject it. in order to be water soluble, it must be in salt form (not free base). im pretty sure they heat it to get it into solution easier.

Greg Reilly: Tobacco groups found that by adding Sugar, they doubled the addictive power of cigarettes. Also, cigarettes burn faster requiring you to buy more in shorter spans.

dancepiglover: I don't know what that rat is swimming around in, but it's not water.

Alexandra Soderstrom: “If you’re going to shove your peanuts in our mouths, the least you can do is tell us what we’re swallowing” 😂😂😂😂 #showusyourpeanuts

Norsaidatul Hanim Huri: but i love cranberries

BAMA BOI: Which means you need 25 lbs of sugar per year

Luna Müller: Yeah sugar is really in everything 😐 even in God dam milk... How did got sugar in milk?! Did the cow eat candy or what?!

Daniel Jason: Hay johnys. Check out; 'ECONEWS' Vol.48, No. 2/App./May 2018.( News From The Center)

Lewis Gill: Joy complete left bunch theoretical post half nation enough gate principle confusion hide.

Andreas Otto Hansen: Well.... Yeah, too much sugar fucks with you, but i can attest to the fact that if you eat much and do little, that is gonna make you fucking fat. Sugars may not help, but there is a way bigger problem there.

PrinceLuigii: There was a study done in Europe on children being educated on the process of fast foods. After children saw what was put into fast foods nearly 80% if not more decided to eat healthier and turned away from fast foods all together (the product used for testing was McDonald's Chicken Nuggets). The same study was used on children in the US and after the children were educated on what went into their fast food there was no change in lifestyle.

The issue with trying to place new labels on unhealthy foods isn't with the manufacturers it be with the people themselves and how one is raised into thinking about healthy living. Without a good foundation of healthy living to stand on children and adults alike will only eat what they find good. Yes, potentially you might be able to change a few with new labeling or education, but least here in the states being able to change a population will be a very difficult task

Schrader: 1:55 - Oh man, I thought he uses non-functional MRI-scanners.

oška r: Sugar and sugars are different things

Quinn Fowlie: 4:09 Ummm... https://youtu.be/1tEC7OTQwGk

Steven Smith: This report has been on my mind for years and has significantly increased the amount of stress in my life. Any time i eat anything now I'm checking how much sugar it has and gotten myself worked up over the answer. It hasn't changed the amount of sugar I eat, but now i'm more worried about everything regardless. Thanks John, good report.
