Watch This Video And You'll Never Eat Sugar Again

Now I'm really scared of Halloween.

Do you need to cut sugar out of your life? After watching this video, you might want to.

That was the topic of discussion this Sunday on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, an HBO comedy show that covers news across the country.

Oliver, in his typically curious way, tackles one of the big concerns in the United States: obesity. In it, he presents a few opinions from both sides, although it seems rather obvious to him sugar consumption is an understated issue in America. 

One fact Oliver doesn't mention, but alludes to, is that one teaspon of granulated sugar is equal to four grams of sugar. That means a bottle of juice with 20 grams of sugar is actually fiveteaspons of sugar. Pretty scary stuff.

Check out the video above and let us know what you think.
