Our society is addicted to sugar and we often don't realize its harmful effects. Our mysterious addiction can be attributed to 3 main 'suspects'. In my TEDx talk I explore why our society is addicted to sugar by solving a 'clue' styled mystery. Listen and enjoy!
My name is Brooklyn Button and I am in 10th grade at the American School of the Hague. I first became aware of our society's sugar addiction when one of my good friends was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I realized how common cultural celebrations are laced with sugar and I became aware of just how much hidden sugar we were actually consuming. This sparked research and a realization of how our society has a positive connotation of sugar.
