White table sugar (sucrose) can lead to obesity, diabetes and a host of other health problems. It’s found in a variety of foods, including some you might not suspect: canned foods, fast foods, and prepared foods. While table sugar can be bad for you, artificial sweeteners can be worse. Saccharine and Aspartame, which can be found in diet drinks and sugar free foods, have no health benefits, can cause diarrhea, and have been linked to cancer.
