The Sweet Tooth - Sugar and Health Facts Visualized, In Time for the Holidays

Like many people, I'm gearing up to head over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house for the holidays. Since we're entering this festive time of year, I thought I'd post a couple of fun infographics in the spirit of the season, even though there are lots of interesting, serious topics to write about (e.g. the Congressional meltdown over the payroll tax extension, some interesting studies on marginal tax rates, etc.).

If you're like me, you've been eating a greater quantity of sweets as of late than you normally do during the year. This infographic shares some interesting tidbits about sugar and what it does to your teeth (in fact, it's all the refined sugar, grain, and corn that we consume as a result of the industrialization of the food chain that makes us have all our teeth problems in the first place). Anyway, here's the infographic, for your erudition and entertainment:

See you tomorrow for one more holiday infographic, and perhaps my last post of this year, depending on how busy / how disconnected from the Interwebz I am back at Mom's house.
