It can seem like nutrition experts are constantly disagreeing with each other—or coming out with new information that contradicts what they've said previously. However, they all agree we should be eating a whole lot less: SUGAR.

Of course, that's easier said than done: Nutrition labels don't list what the recommended daily intake of sugar is.

What's more, food manufacturers add sugar to lots of foods that don't even taste all that sweet. "You could make dog poop taste good with enough sugar, and the food industry does," says Robert Lustig, M.D., professor of pediatrics in the division of endocrinology at the University of California – San Francisco.
As part of his presentation, Lustig showed a slide with 56 different words on it that all amount to the same thing: added sugar. Here's an infographic based on Lustig's slide:
