Good question. I have no idea, but I'm sure things would be a little different.
My guess is artificial sweeteners would have been mainstreamed faster and people would be just as fat. . .little hope of it going back to Little House on the Prairie sparse use of sweeteners days.
That's a pretty profound and head-hurting concept to consider, Jane. Seriously. Imagine if sugar production and consumption were LIMITED instead of subsidized and ubiquitous?
They did invent Saccharine in the 1800s and it only became widely used during (wait for it) - the sugar rationing years of WWII. (Vickie gets a gold star for nailing that one!)Norma also gets points - if sugar was not limited with the exception of removing subsidies and if it were simply not allowed in things like vegetables - what would the world be like?
Rationing of sugar wouldn't stop us.The more you tell people they can't have something the more they want it and find ways to get it.
