These results are based on a 2,000 calorie based diet. Rachel Johnson, a spokeswoman for the American Heart Association and a nutrition professor at the University of Vermont says "The key point is that we are consuming way too much added sugars for good health, Added sugars include table sugar, brown sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, maple syrup, honey, molasses and other caloric sweeteners in prepared and processed foods and beverages.
