This study may be new, but the research on this dates back almost 20 years. It's not the consumption of sugar, or fructose, or glucose that causes cancer… but, rather, the amount we're consuming. The more sugar you take in (even unknowingly), the more you crave it. In this episode, Chalene promises to giv
