sugar, baby

The new 2015 U.S. government dietary guidelines (from the HHS and USDA) reduces daily sugar intake to a maximum of 48 grams.

The current average daily sugar intake in the U.S. is 126 grams.

That's an immediate 62% reduction. Good luck, America!

Here's an idea. How about, instead of calling the salaries of government HHS and USDA workers "pay", we call it "sugar" and immediately reduce it by 62% and see how THEY like it?
