DargorV: Whats even more concerning than sugar being in EVERYTHING, is the sugar replacements' effects on the intestine flora. Chemical replacers like Sorbitol, Dextrine, Maltodextrine, Fructose, etc all those fake sugars you'll find in the Diet version of everything, even medicine. They put harmful chemicals that taste sweet in there just so the "With less Sugar!" label can be put on..........

Hunter Chewning: I love how at 5:00 the head of the sugar association tries to argue that sugar does not contribute to diabetes because that is exactly what it does. Type 2, to be exact.

Magalie Frechette: After watching ‘Fed Up’ in science class, this is really cool!

Gypsy SnickerDoodle: there are few things as bemusing as the resigned expressions Cuban faces, when they KNOW those Canadians going to ask for a Bloody Caesar... in a land of fresh tropical fruit 🍉

MagicGoldenKoi: By the way, you should have no more than 10 grams of added sugar per day. Think about that. That's why food companies don't put the recommended daily percentage on their labels. Cause less people would eat something with 200%+ sugar content.

Silver Bullet Productions: One teaspoon is approximately 4.2 grams, each peanut has 4 grams of sugar. This man is a genius.

anders damin: I've seen the Twinkie and the damage done, a little part of it in everyone, oh, oh, the damage done...but every fatty's like the setting sun.

Ahmet Semih YILMAZ: Sugar actually improves taste, we even use some amount sugar while making rice, not chinese boiled rice, an actual Balkan, Anatolian and Persian food.
Also in Anatolia and Balkans we put sugar in every food made with pepper, tomato/tomato paste water and whatever you put in it

Lys Carton: It's not the metric system the problem. I mean it's logic, and it's way more easy to put grams in kilograms than to put teaspoons in tablespoons. BE LOGIC AMERICA AND JOIN THE F**** METRIC SYSTEM LIKE EVERY ONE ! Oh, and just STOP USING THE FAHRENHEIT IT'S TO STUPID FOR EVERY ONE EXEPT YOU !

Ok, I mean, just do what ever you want or even best : keep your stupid american system because us, French and actually every single country of this planet except you (and like two other littles country everyone forgets and for good reasons because every country who don't use the metric system CAN be forget ), we really laugh about your f**** Fahrenheit.

Sorry, it really needed to tack out that of the bottom of my french heart. I didn't (quite) really mean all of that... except the part on the Fahrenheit.... And the part on the metric system.

Evan Fields: @7:35 a mirken is prosthetic pubic hair mostly used for movies. Also @9:20 John says "freebase heroin" and then shows a picture of a hypodermic needle and black tar heroin being prepared on a spoon. Freebasing and injecting are two very different delivery systems. Other than that last part John nailed it!

Michael Mertens: "Nobody understands the metric system"

Well... no! Almost everybody is using the metric system except three countries: Myanmar, Liberia and... the USA. And if you're on a list with Myanmar and Liberia, you're simply on the wrong list.

jeremy hearne: The return of the why boner. With a vengence! Very very few will get that

Sara Danhoff: Holy shit, was gonna come pick on John for picking fights with big tobacco and not the sugar industry despite it being more addictive and deadly. But then I find this and Im like... Wow, that's ballsy. The sugar cartels are way older, more powerful and rich than big tobacco.

Ellen Roberts: I drank sugar sodas for five years and I got type II Diabetes. I am now off all sodas and I drink water, and diet powder drinks like Crystal Light . I have lost 50 pounds and looking to lose 60 more so that I can reverse the Diabetes, because it is a chronic disease that only gets worse with time. You will lose your eyesight and limbs over time no matter how much you monitor your sugars and A1C numbers. I must lose this weight. If I cannot do it the old fashioned way, I will get a lapband and be in debt if my insurance refuses to pay for it. Devoting a year or two to get this weight off. It's coming off regardless! I am determined to lose weight I have no excuse , I will get radical if need be.

Clem Fandango: Isn't 5 grams of sugar equal to a teaspoon?

Penguin Films: Second best white powder ever.

Ackwell: Amount of sugar (g) divided by 5 will be equal to peanuts.

Charles Bailey: That doctor looks kinda like Benedict cumberbatch

Raymond Jay Johnson: I like Cranberries - they sang two of my favorite songs. ;)
